One of the greatest questions I have yet to answer fully is, ?Why do our minds seem to always hone in on the negative?? An example might be, if we were to lose a few pounds, inevitably the very thing we dwell on is not that great accomplishment, but rather how much more there is to go. Or, say you attended a gathering and it was spectacular in every way, but just as you were putting on your coat to leave, someone tripped and spilled their drink on your dress. I guarantee that that last incident remained on your mind, overshadowing all the rest of that great evening. That just drives me crazy! Our minds could just as easily choose to focus on the positive, but they almost always opt to ruminate on the negative instead. Very curious indeed.

Our minds want us to think that only things that we can see, touch, taste and smell are actually ?real? in our lives. We are sensate beings who have been given our senses as ?part? of our guidance system, but there is so much more to our guidance then meets the eye. If you can suspend your rational, logical mind for just a few minutes, I want you to consider this: Some of the most fulfilling, magical and even the greater part of who you are resides within the unseen.

It must seem like a silly question,
I realize, but do you eat only when you are hungry, or do you find yourself eating mindlessly? Most people with normal eating habits eat approximately every 3-4 hours, between 6-8 am, again between 12-1 pm and then between 5-7 pm. They may have a small snack between breakfast and lunch or between lunch and dinner, and that?s about it.

I wish I had a dime for every person who has said to me that they will begin a regular exercise program right after they lose 15 to 20 pounds.
Nothing can assist in weight loss like a regular exercise program; however, I realize how intimidating it can be to walk into a gym feeling overweight and out of shape. Been there, done that. The bottom line is, it is high time you gave up caring what anyone else thinks -- you must not give a rip and then walk in tall and proud, knowing that you have taken that first vitally important step toward your improved health.
