Are they different? What is the active part of submission? I’m struggling right now with being me. I am stubborn. I am difficult to move. I would like to change that. I’ve taken a different approach to my physical health by taking action in my exercise. That’s something that I can just push myself to
There’s a lot going in my head today. Super introspective, which is nothing new, but some of the things I’m reading and meditating on, are resonating strongly within me. Heidi wrote, in Part 4 of her testimony on her blog: Shame is dangerous. It causes us to isolate, to hide, and furthers our sin/shame patterns.
Ok, I’m still in the game, but really am starting over (yes, after two whole weeks!). Christmas plus hormones = really bad combination. Catch you next week! The ticker will change – but for today it says 80 lbs to go.

Ok, I’m a sucker for new sites to track and blog and stuff. I do have a MySpace page. I’m not a friend-a-holic there. I only add people that I have some sort of pre-established relationship with. A couple of days ago I found BuddySlim.com. I was looking for a better ticker to put on
I’m down 4 lbs. in the 3 days I’ve been doing Thin Within. It is so easy for me to try to dismiss this as simple fluctuations in my weight, but I think it’s more. The first two days of the book are really inspiring to me. I read this book before, back in August
I’m trying Thin Within again. No pun intended… Today is Day 1 and already I can tell it’s working. You know how? I’m irritable and cold. One of the weird things that happens to my body when I stop overfeeding it is I get really, really cold in the evening. And that kicks off the
