Motivational Monday! It’s OK To Throw It Away!!

By Jennifer

“Clean your plate!”
How many times did you hear that as a child?
Or this, “You’re not getting any desert until you eat everything!”
How many kids are being made to feel like that have to eat everything in front of them in order to be rewarded?
This is a parenting practice that I’m firmly against (but that’s […]

Motivational Monday: Quitters Never Win!

By Jennifer

Staring at this computer screen, listening to Matt Redman serenade me with 10,000 Reasons, my heart is so full. I am so very blessed.

I have a story to tell.
A few weeks ago, well actually a few months ago, I decided I was going to quit doing 7 Bites. It wasn’t going anywhere, I thought. […]

Cook With Your Kids!

By Jennifer

When I was younger, I didn’t cook with my mom the way I did when I was older. Rather, I cooked with my Dad! My mom was working her own business, and would often spend evenings seeking out clients or attending meetings, so often me, my brothers, or my Dad would handle dinner. I […]

Well, at least they make us feel like we are not winning the battle against obesity.

I lost most of my weight in the first six months with my doctor telling […]

Who Am I?

I am not who I think I am.
I am not my fat.
I am not my flaws.
I am not everything that is wrong with me.
I am not my surgery.
I am not my weight loss.
I am not every diet fad I’ve found lately.
I am not my children.
I am not my spouse.
I am not all the things I […]

I Can’t Do It All – Part 2

By Jennifer

I never intended for this to be a two-parter, as you could probably guess from my first post. But I had an experience last week that led to the realization that I still have hangups about asking for help in my life. I wanted to share this experience with you.

I don’t talk about it, […]

There’s More To Life Than FOOD!

By: Suzette
When I began my WLS journey it was to lose weight I had been carrying around for 40 years. It was to get of unwanted meds and to be able to exercise or just walk without being winded or in pain. All those things have come true! I’m now 158 pounds released ! Yes, […]

I Can’t Do It All

By Jennifer

 

As a work at home mom, I have a lot on my plate. Trying to homeschool my kids, keep the house clean, and run two businesses all while not losing my sanity is hard enough as it is. Add in events, parties, church functions, and attempting to get some down time in … and […]
