12 Ways to Turn Your Pain into Praise

Sapphires from Psalms

Better Than Jewels


I am a foody, no doubt about it! I love to cook, to feed people, and yes, to EAT! I am not one of those super thin ladies who says, “I just forgot to eat.”

I agree with the comedian who stated,“Skinny people make me sick when they say, ‘I just forgot to eat.’ I have forgotten my passwords, my car keys, and my mother’s maiden name. But I have never forgotten to eat! You gotta be some kinda stupid to forget to eat!”

All that to say, "I likes me some food!" But I don’t like unwanted pounds. So here is a weight-loss hack for the holidays to let you enjoy eating but not have to deal with back-fat in the new year!

Here are some eating-at-party hacks to keep the festivities from making you fat in no time flat!

  • Grab a sparkling water or diet soda (Unless you are worried about bone density depletion...then just get a bottle of water.) Let the water fill you up. I know the food table is calling your name! But if you sip your water and you won’t go home disappointed in yourself.
  • Walk the buffet table before you even pick up a plate. Decide the 3 things you can’t live without. Put only those things on your plate.
  • You don’t have to devour an entire piece of cake. A little dab will do ya. Take a bite of the cherry cheesecake, not the whole slice. Don’t feel guilty about throwing the rest away! It’s better to store it in a trashcan than to store it on your hips!
  • Practice good self-talk. Ask yourself the question, “Do I really have to have this?” The answer might be yes! Just make sure you have left room for it on your calorie intake for the day.

 If you want to make 2015 the year you were finally successful at being the person you always wanted to be, then you are invited to attend:
