Changing our Mindset about Overeating

I’m so tired of seeing all theses pill and drinks and things that are supposed to suppress your appetite or help you lose weight, in one way or another.  They don’t work.  Please don’t buy these and waste your money.  If you overeat, it is because you like to eat and you eat because it’s there.  It doesn’t matter if you’re hungry or not.  That’s not how overweight people think.  We see food and we want it.  Plain and simple.

I’ve heard people say some really awful things about me and I’ve heard people say wonderful …

More time spent at work means depression. Depression leads to more shopping and drinking, which leads to no money to invest. That puts me right back where I started. No money to invest or save. I believe if I invest more time and energy in myself, things will balance out. That’s why I came up with the Sanity Bank. A bank that I can actually contribute too without having to put more time in at work and pile on the depression. A bank that I can deposit into that will make me stronger and happier. When I think I’m going under, I can go to the Sanity Bank and there is actually something to withdrawal. Happy thoughts and inner peace. I feel as though I’ve read every self help book out there. I started to talk about Wayne Dyer like I …
