Hi there Journal,
I had a bicycle when I was a kid, and I LOVED riding that bike. I still remember the long alley that ran down behind the row of houses at one place where we lived. I could FLY down that alley, with no one to watch and make fun of me for being...."chubby". I would do what I called in my mind "tricks"...it was so much fun. I can even remember my favorite bicycle sweater...it was a firey orangey-red...and it would flap out behind me as I streaked up and down that alley...LOL!
So it really resonated to me when he wrote: "start pedaling on your own personal power."
And: "When you begin to see that your particular weight struggles may have little to do with anything outside yourself, YOUR POWER TO CHANGE IS ENORMOUS."
I like that...it gave me hope, and ignited my determination. And it still does again today!
From Dr Phil's book: "You can create an internal dialogue that is healthy, constructive, and joyful."
My verse for today: "God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble."
My quote for today: " You'll never achieve extraordinary results taking average measures." Skwigg
Enjoy the Journey,
