Easy Weight Loss Tips: This website Michelle and I found says there are 11 Easy Ways to Burn More and Consume Less Calories. You don’t have to go on a crazy weight loss diet to shed a few pounds — try these deprivation-free methods instead.

  1. Limit your liquids to herbal tea and water only. Drinking even light juices or diet coke will still pack on pounds.
  2. Eat with chopsticks. “People who use chopsticks tend to eat way less and get fuller quicker
  3. Take your workout to work. The author of this article suggest things like a jump rope.

A Way Out, Great American Smokeout, Family Weekend Fun, Answer to Prayer Video

Power Thoughts

  • “People are either wind in your sail or an anchor on your tail.” Joe Charbonneau
  • “I want to know God’s thoughts; the rest are details.” Albert Einstein
  • “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” Albert Einstein

A Way Out: When life throws things your way, God will always provide a way through to the brighter side of life. Whether those things are temptations, struggles, suffering or loss. Trust in Him and look to Him to show His provision for you.

“No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.” ~ 1 Corinthians 10:13

The Great American Smokeout: Today is the BIG Day… One great reason to QUIT: Healthy and Wealthy…. Start a Savings Jar… By putting the amount we spent daily on cigarettes into a jar or piggy bank, the savings mount up quickly. This offers us not only a poignant look at how much money was spent poisoning our bodies,  but a meaningful way to reward ourselves for quitting. (

Testimonies from those who decided to Quit:
Letting Go… Well I had a heart attack in April ’09, I, of course was told to quit smoking or else…
Getting a New Job… It’s hard enough getting a new job, never mind if they know you’re a smoker
Taking a Deep Breath… I miss taking a deep breath and feeling great. I am tired of coughing and feeling tired. I saw my six year old son pretending to have a cup of coffee and using a tooth pick for a cigarette. That told me it’s time! My father died of lung cancer and I remember the pain I felt watching him, I don’t want my son feeling an ounce of that pain. I want to be healthy and alive for my family.
Sick Of Being A Drug Addict… I am hooked. I make up lots of reasons not to stop but I know it’s stupid mind games. I would give anything to wake up un-addicted. but I know it’s never that easy. Hard work has gotten me where I am today and hard work will get me to where I want to be…A non-smoker!
Want to Quit? Contact the American Cancer Society for free and confidential counseling services, support and information: 1-877-937-78487848
