Does Eating Rigt=Weight Loss?

Does Eating Right = Weight Loss?


Yes it does.  But the only catch is, knowing what eating right is.  And trust me it is not what we have been taught.  Such things, as soy, pork, nuts, sport drinks, diet sodas, low calories foods, and fat free foods, are not the foods and drinks for eating right.  Your body, as I have stated before, is not made of chemicals, preservatives, artificial colors and flavorings, these things should be avoided. I read the status of a young woman on facebook several weeks ago.  Saying that she eats right, but still can't lose weight.  And she mentioned how frustrating it was for her to try so hard and still not be able to lose weight.  Well I wanted to make a comment, but I opted to write an article instead.  Because I realized that it was more than just this young woman out there having this problem.  As the saying goes, it is not your fault, but it is your problem.  And unfortunately a lot of us fit in this category of problems, problems, problems.  When you are unable to fix a problem, it means that you have reached the limit of your knowledge in that area.  And it is up to you to seek and find the solution to your problem(s).  Running into this invisible wall on your weight loss journey, can really take the wind out of your sail.  Doubt, frustion, the loss of will-power are fast eroding the core of your desire.   It makes you question yourself...why is it not, working?  It's not working, because there are food items in your diet that does not allow you to lose weight.  And if you are extremely over weight you may be exercising, when you should be stretching.  Whole foods, such as fruits, vegetables, plenty of good water, coconut water, fish, and chicken,


minus the sugars, breads, alcoholic drinks, smoking, potatoes, and hard to digest meats, is the only way that the weight will began to shed.  Despite popular belief, you can't lose weight eating what you want.  There has to be a letting go, a cutting lose, never to return again of certain items, and foods from your life.  You should never try to obtain weight loss by taking chemicals.  Once you stop taking the chemicals the weight will return with an attitude, meaning more of it and quickly.  You have to change those habits, and those foods.  So, the young woman's problem is still with what she is eating and her exercising program.

The difference between exercising and stretching, is that exercising is mostly for cardio, and stretching is for toning, improving circulation of blood through all organs of the body, strength building of your core, and rapid weight loss.



The next time that you are comfronted with a problem.  Just seek more information in the area, and keep reaching for success.  Remember, success is not on a earthly plane.  You have to reach up to touch the stars.

Everywhere you go these days, the mental health of our community seems to be a primary subject and concern. We have finally come to grips with the fact that not all of our problems are financial and social. Some of our problems are borne of unspoken misery and unresolved pain.


That’s why I published a book earlier this year filled with healthy living tips for the mind, body and soul. “Broken In Plain Sight” provides a perfectly crafted fictional, highly imaginative platform that proves that love is the common denominator to vibrancy and healing. The novel-like feel works to illustrate the underlying reasons for unhealthy lifestyle habits and offers practical and innovative solutions for living healthier.  In its fictional, diet-guide like format, the book exposes the struggles, secrets, and corruption within an African American family and their journey to find love, truth, and healing.


Now, six months later, my new book, “Broken In Plain Sight”, has been nominated to receive The Henri at The 2012 Christian Literary Awards in November 2012. See for yourself why it was nominated and purchase your copy today. In order to take home this prestigious award, I need your vote! If you liked my book, I would greatly appreciate if you would take a minute and vote for it.

In Home Hair Care Demonstrations

Well On My Way


This is for all the natural ladies, those thinking about it, and those who are still relaxing!! Just wanted to show off my coily coils so that you can see how my hair is progressing. The picture that you are viewing above I have not applied any gel, hairdress, oil or spritz since my last wash, which was Friday and it is almost Friday again. I wanted to show you how well the My Glory Hair Care Products work. As you can tell my hair is very hydrated to look like this after a week with out applying any extra products. Some women like to apply the products everyday and sport the wet look for their style...and that is ok if that is what they want to do, as for me I do not particularly care for the wet look; if my hair can look like this dry then I do not need to apply any more products until the next time I wash.


After I wash I apply a generous amount of aloe vera gel, hairdress and since my hair is already wet or damp I do not spray with spritz (all the products I use are My Glory Hair Care with exception of the aloe vera gel). The next step I do is to work the products throughout the hair with my hands then I comb thru my hair; my hair is very easy to comb no tangles:). Then after I comb I brush my hair very well to make sure that all of the products are distributed evenly thru the hair, now it is time to decide on what style I want to wear. This weeks style is my hair pulled back with curls in back. To achieve this hair style, I brush my hair back and tied it down (I took a pair of my little grandaughters' used tights and cut out one leg and use it to tie down my hair in the front, along with a wide head band, wave cap, and silk cap) I do this to help to protect my hair and the ends of my hair. The items that are featured below are in the order that I use them. I layer them and this works very well for me and stays in place.


If you have gone natural and feel that it is a chore you can book your Hair Care Party right now and I will come to your home with your permission and help you and your friends/family with the process of applying the products.

The price to host a party is $150.00. As an incentive to you, we encourage our potential customer(s) who sponsor a party to invite 5 to 15 friends or family members to help them offset the party cost. We recommend you that you ask them to donate $10.00 each for the show and maybe have some snacks served. Demos helps to promote togetherness and networking and are a lot of fun.

For hosting a hair care party, you (the host or hostess) will be given a $15.00 savings for their purchase of the full set of the My Glory Hair Care.


The host / hostess can ask each person(s) whom they invited who will be attending the hair party to visit this website to pay for themselves and/or if they are bringing a guest the guest can be directed here to pay also.


The host/hostess can collect all monies due and make a group payment if all parties involved are in agreement.

Those Painful Heavy Cycle Flows

That time of the month ewww:( is enough to make some women just want to pull the trigger on themselves. Did you know that in some countries women don't even
have cycles...they have a period, and in Hawaii women only stay on their
cycles for an hour. Let me pause for a moment to explain the
difference between a cycle and a period. A cycle is every 28 to 30 days
and you flow from 3 to 14 days sometimes with a heavy flow. A period
is just what it is a dot. I bet you say how in the world can that
happen and could it really be true...well it is. Over in other
countries the food is not destroyed with chemicals. So when they eat,
the food does what it is supposed to do and the body can eliminate
properly without being hindered from dangerous chemicals. Another
reason why women in other countries don't suffer is because they do not
eat all day one needs to eat all day long (3 meals a day is
ridiculous if you do not work on the railroad or have a very physical
job one healthy balanced meal is enough). There is nothing wrong with
living a good life, having a car, running hot and cold water, and all
the other good things that we enjoy over here in US...the problem, I see
is that we do not have a balance
. Because we
have cars we don't want to walk anywhere or because we have grocery
stores we don't want to grow our own food. These things have really
spoiled us, it has made us lazy.

Lack of exercise and our eating habits has a lot to do with rather a woman will have a period or a cycle flow. If you suffer from a painful cycle then your diet is very poor, and your exercise is not
often enough. Our body is really a temple and we should keep it as
clean as we can. We must stay away from fried foods, alcohol, shell
fish, smoking, and a whole host of unhealthy things that we do to our
bodies. A monthly flow is one way to help a woman who may not eat
healthy to keep her body clean, and if your body did not make this
adjustment to clean itself we would really be sick from all of the toxin
build up that would be in our blood. If you would take your diet all
the way down, back to the drawing board, leaving nothing but fruit, then
build it up from there, making sure to leave the meat out, your cramps
would subside. Taming your appetite is not an easy thing to do this is
why it is so hard to lose weight. But for those of you who will have a
hard time to do this you will need to purchase you some Saw Palmetto.
Saw Palmetto is an herb that you can sip as a tea or take in the pill
form. Saw Palmetto will ease those cramps and in some cases get rid of
them all together which is what it did for my daughters when they were
younger, and until this day they do not suffer with cramps.
The Bible really tells the truth when it says that my people
perish from the lack of knowledge, because what you don't know will harm
you. I hope that this article helps you and if you have any questions
please feel free to ask. Read. Learn. Grow. Leave a comment.

Magic Power Coffee - You never had coffee like this before!

Your body will be stressed as the challenges ahead test your strength and endurance. It is important to keep healthy and in shape. Try to:

Eat properly - Eating right can help you stay healthy. Your appearance and your self-esteem can be affected by your eating habits. It is very easy to snack on junk food when you're home all day. Take time to plan you meals and snacks so they are well balanced and nutritious. Eating properly will help you keep the good attitude you need during your job search.

Exercise - Include some form of exercise as part of your daily activities. Regular exercise reduces stress and depression and prevents a sense of lethargy. It can really help you get through those tough days.

Allow time for fun - When you're planning your time, be sure to build fun and relaxation into your plans. You are allowed to enjoy life even if your are unemployed. Keep a list of activities or task that you want to accomplish such as volunteer work, repairs around the house, or hobbies. When free time develops, you can refer to the list and have lots of things to do.

The Healthy Woman: Inside and Out

Love is a very vital source of our life. But as women, we are nurturers. We take care of everyone but ourselves. Those few times we dare to do something for ourselves; guilt sets in. We think we're being selfish. We even give ourselves excuses, as though we don't deserve to be pampered and cared for. Not all of us fit into this category some of us have learned the value of looking out for number one first. If you consistently take time for GO GIRL! but if you don't read on.Excerpt from Chapter 3 of The Healthy Woman: Inside and OutVisit:

Setting Healthy Goals

The first step to achieving results is setting a realistic goal. No matter what the reason, successful and healthy weight management depends on sensible goals and expectations. If you set sensible goals for yourself, chances are you'll be more likely to meet them and have a better chance of managing your weight long term.

Setting healthy goals at the start of an ongoing program can help you change and improve your physical activity and eating habits. To set goals that are right for you, think about what you want to change and why, and what steps you can take to reach your goal. These changes don’t have to be big. Even small steps can make a difference. Also, think about who can help you, and how you’ll reward yourself for making these changes.

5 Steps to Setting Goals

Make a choice - Look at your body, your quality of life. What do you really want to have?
Be specific - Leave no detail left behind.
Find Your Reason – Now that you know what you want to change, ask yourself WHY?
Form your plan – What is it going to take to get there? What are you going to have to do?
Take action - Do you know what the number one cause of failure is in most people’s lives? Never taking action. We develop these comfort zones and become afraid to step out of those boundaries and really go after our goals. We know that we must change; we know that we have to follow our plan to be happy, but seldom do. Do not let your written plan of action go to waste. Start immediately on working towards your goals!
