When you get caught up in the busyness of life, it's easy to think that your physical world is your only world. But there's a larger and more expansive invisible world that has a greater impact on your life than you may think.
Whether you call it Soul, Spirit, Consciousness, God, or Wise Self (as I like to call it), you have a powerful force within you. This force wants what's best for you. It's always loving you and gently guiding you to your highest good.
Slow down. Get quiet. Go within and listen to the whispers of truth. ... See MoreSee Less
always there for you, quietly in the background whispering hope, support, and vibes of healing and love. Encouraging you always to your highest self

Until the weight becomes a health problem. I was slowly dying (per 2 physicians) with every ailment possible when I weighed 222lb over 15yrs.. medication wasn't saving me. I wanted to live, so I maintained a healthy weight for myself. Be smart when it comes to your health not the trends.
