I am so glad that you are back and you look amazing, happy belated birthday!!
My question is how to really make the commitment to self, and to stick to discipline.  I keep telling myself that discipline is my friend, any thoughts? 

Yes, I do
A thought…

Burning fat
Has very little
To do with discipline…

I didn’t get
More disciplined
When I lost
Over l30 pounds

I simply started
Doing three things
That I wasn’t doing before…

Doing wellness

Tracy asks:
Why is it that my desire to be thin again, healthy, stay on track is ALWAYS over-powered by my desire to eat fast food, chips, chocolate? I really, really want my thin healthy body back and I just cannot find it in myself to do what I know I need to.

Never works…

Want, always does

Want good food
In your body
Want to feel alive
And well
Want to be lean
Strong and healthy

Desire to…

Fast foods
Desire to

Be you?

There’s no comparison
When you…
Think about it

Remind, yourself…

It’s an exercise…
