So you've decided to change your ways and get serious about getting healthy. You also invited a few friends and family members to join you and the support is fabulous. Then suddenly one at a time your support team fizzles. If you and your crew were using MyFitness Pal messages telling you your friends have not logged in for a week or month appear in your email box. This is when most of us would cave in quit and join our "supporters". STOP!!! No not this time its got to be different. Time for some self-examination. Now who were you making the changes for and at the core who would benefit the most from your decision to get healthy. The answer is you and me. So as indicated in the title: Are You Willing To Keep Your Commitment To Yourself? I choose to answer a resounding yes! I will not quit on myself, I will not cheat on myself [because I can't], I will not feel despair. I will stick to my commitment because I am so worth it and anyone else who benefits as we say in New Orleans is getting lagniappe.


  1. Keeping our commitments to ourselves (as it relates to our health) can sometimes be one of our most difficult commitments. We JUST GOTTA DO IT! We deserve it.

You know what I am going to say even before I say it,  Lord . You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,   too great for me to understand!   I can never escape from your Spirit. I can never get away from your presence! If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the grave, you are there. If I ride the wings of the morning   if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength w
  WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? Oh, wow my last blogpost was in April 2016. It was a video that I did in the conference room of my old office space. It was a day without makeup, but a lot of thoughts. I was consumed with how great people functioned in the midst of being very afraid and was inspired to do a video. My life has changed so drastically since 2016. Little did I know April 2016 was the last month of my life being settled and mundane. My greatest worries were college tuition for my son and ensuring my company had funds monthly to remain self-sustaining. May 2016 ushered in a tsunami of challenges that still seem to overtake me. I have been walking with wobbly water legs since. Some days I just feel I cannot go on. There are no real respites. I just stop and decide to be grateful, smile, laugh, and encourage others at sporadic intervals throughout a given day. I always make a point of telling others that as I encourage you, I encourage myself. The people that receive services throug
