how to get your life back on track

I spend a lot of time thinking about how I can use my weight loss story to help other people achieve similar success in their own lives. I am constantly trying to come up with new analogies to help people understand the mistakes they might be making in their life and what they can to do make things right again. Today I am going to talk to you about a simple technique that I developed which has really helped put things in perspective and get every area of my life back on track -- especially my weight! Your Life Path It has been a few years now since I have achieved my goal of losing ( over ) one hundred pounds and dramatically improving my overall health and fitness. After having successfully kept the weight off for the past year or so I have been at my wits end trying to come up with an explanation as to why I succeeded where so many others have failed. Finally the answer came to me one day when I was out on a long bike ride and suddenly came to a section of the bike path that

how i see the world: food and nutrition

I have known for a while now that I have a very unique personally, apparently it is one that only about 1% of the entire world has. That personality I am referring to is called an INTJ. On a side note: If you are interested and would like to learn more about this and other personality types (including your own) go to . Anyway, according to this ( and every website that writes about personality types ), I am unique in the sense that I am capable of recognizing patterns and deciphering difficult problems in a systematic way in order to create a simple and easy to follow solution that I can then apply to my life. So basically I am able to recognize and understand things that are not so easy for other people to see and understand. For those of you who know me personally, this might help explain why I am the way I am: I just see the world as one big problem and unlike many, I can actually solve these problems. So before writing I always ask myself, "Wha

how to overcome the fear of change

I know a lot of different people who are all at very different stages in their lives, and I realized today that they all have something very special in common: At any given moment, every single one of them has something in their lives that they desperately wish to change. It doesn't matter if they are wealthy, poor, middle class, fat or thin: everybody is trying to change something about their life today. The problem is that too many of these well intentioned people believe that in order to successfully change something about their lives, all they need is the will to do it. This approach is not wrong necessarily, it is just incomplete. What I have learned is that the best way to affect real and lasting change is to combine that same level of will power with faith and forward thinking. Whenever you are in the process of carrying out change, will power alone will not help you. Why? Because will power rarely gets you past today . And whenever you attempt to change, today is

with privilege comes great responsibility

Ever since I was a young child I have had a rather skeptical temperament. Looking back over the course of my lifetime I can recall dozens of different situations where I was very quick to question the validity of what I was being told or lead to believe. And what I found was that many of the things that I had once believed to be true were actually lies manufactured with the clear and explicit intent to keep me ignorant to the truth, to keep me in line, and keep me under control . When I was a young child, I confess that I was awestruck when I was first told about the existence of good old Saint Nicholas. Now, whether or not I actually believed that he was real is debatable because I honestly can't remember. What I do remember though is that I always had my doubts... When I was about seven years old, I came up with this brilliant plan to prove whether or not "Santa Clause" was real. So on Christmas Eve night I went up to my room at my usual bedtime and pretended to
