During my workout the other day, I was flipping a huge tire up and down the street.  By huge, I’m talking 275 pounds. Then it dawned on me. I used to weigh almost as much as that tire. Before that math equation epiphany, I was beating myself up for a lack of “perfection” along my...

I was at a crossroads in my life several years ago.  I wasn’t sure where my career was headed. Do I stay or do I go? Where does God want me to be? What does He want me to do? It wasn’t just just my career, though. My relationships, too. Everything was at a standstill....

Take a deep breath this morning, and reflect, on you. What thoughts come to mind? Are they positive? Encouraging? Or are you already beating yourself up for not doing this or that?

When we think about starting a health journey, we focus on diet plans and gym routines. But when I started my journey years ago, God showed me there was something else just as important as changing my eating and exercise habits. Forgiveness. You see, for so many years, I beat myself up for not taking good...

It’s a bad habit most of us have, especially when it comes to our bodies. We look in the mirror and immediately focus on what we don’t like about ourselves. This is too big or that’s too small, or too this or too that. We get down on ourselves, and the negative tailspin for the...

It was a joyful inconvenience. Every morning as I got ready for work, I would throw on dress after dress.  It seemed many of them got bigger and bigger as the weeks went by and the pounds slowly melted away.  It turned into a time consuming guessing game.  I honestly got a kick out of it.  My progress...
