Well it’s finished off. The Toolbook♥
One month has come and gone.
What changes have happened?
I lost 6 lbs. the last time I checked.
I KNOW I lost more but I don’t have a scale in the house and I really don’t care about weighing.
My clothes are bigger.
I look in the mirror and I see a difference.
People at work have commented that they noticed I’ve lost weight.
I’m a grandmother now.
I am no longer struggling on the weekends with wanting to eat all weekend long junk food.
I pretty much stick to my eating window and my healthy choices of food far out weigh my desire to want junk.
I have more energy.
Mental clarity is getting stronger each and every day.
Depression, anxiety, panic attacks, fear, and obsessive compulsive behaviors have subsided.
I’m able to stay up later and be productive. That is a HUGE one for me.♥
This month has truly flown by.
I’ve posted every day.
Tomorrow is June 1st.
What am I going to talk about now?
Tomorrow will be my last entry in this journal.
Honestly I didn’t think I would like it as much as I have…lol
I like to journal, and I enjoy making my own so using this one, well I wasn’t too sure about it.
I’m glad I gave it a try because I’ve learned quite a bit that is helping me achieve not only my goal body but goals in general!~
I continue to visualize my goals of getting rid of all the stuff that I don’t need.
Plus I’m helping out others get rid of their stuff ♥
I’m able to see myself being successful.
What I have noticed this past month is and for those of you that have been following along long enough know I’ve struggled with going to be early, I’m staying up at least till 9 pm….
Keeping myself busy…not frantic but going about getting done what needs to get done♥
My mind set is stronger, more positive, letting go of the negative.
Giving myself gentle love and encouragement that everything will work out for good. Romans 8:28
(I encourage each of you to listen to how you speak to yourself….)
In AC Toolbook looking forward there is a part which states EXPRESS YOURSELF:DOODLE!~
I do not sketch, draw pictures or paint portraits.
So I ‘doodled’ with words. The colour orange I used.
JOY. PEACE. LOVE. STRENGTH. MIRACLES. HOPE. BELIEVE. HEALTH. WHOLENESS.
I was going to go back and doodle more but never got around to it.
That’s ok because that was 10 days ago, tomorrow I can do it all over again when I turn to AC Toolbook looking back. Once I finish reflecting on that I can doodle again♥
“You do know I am the yard sale diva?”
My comment to someone who came to my yard sale and was bartering with me over the prices.
I won…lol♥ He still got a deal and he knows it.
As I unload all the boxes of yard sale items at 6 a.m. unto the driveway and as I load much of it back 7 hours later into the house, I know some would ask me if it was worth it,? Why bother putting so much effort and work into it?
I’ll be honest I think it myself but only for a few seconds.
Good hard work does pay off.
Being diligent and not giving up does pay off.
Being consistent has it’s rewards.
The same goes with intermittent fasting.
Fast 19 hours, 5 hours of eating window.
Good hard work paying off mind, body and spirit.
Being diligent (not looking for a quick fix diet but a life style).
Consistency reaps amazing benefits.
Not giving up, more determined then ever before.
It’s time to fly!~
I’ve been on this journey with all of you for almost a month now.
My goodness gracious….lol
Let it go and shake it off.
Everything and anything that is hindering this process of wholeness and health.
Mind, body and spirit.
My tummy is hurting right now.
Not because I ate too much but because of what I ate.
As I’ve mentioned before pizza and chicken wings do not agree with me anymore.
Today the spaghetti and tomato meat sauce combination has caused my tummy distress.
Fresh tomatoes do not bother me.
Is it the meat and tomato combination? I’m not sure yet but I’m thankful for this Study of One of me and listening to my body and what it is telling me….
My body is wanting food that brings life for me, to sustain me, it is beginning not to crave the garbage, the processed, the in your face advertisements that trigger you to want to buy and eat.
They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the Lord to care for them. They are confident and fearless and can face their foes triumphantly.” ~ Psalm 112:7-8 NLT

I want to share a few powerful truths.
“Don’t expect AC to work in a day or even three or four! It will take as least three weeks of a lifestyle change to see an effect on your appetite. Trust your body a lot, trust me a little, and you may be surprised at how well your body can work.” Bert Herring MD
I’m in my third week with all of you that have been following along with me on Fast-5.
The last time I weighed, I was 6 pounds less.
My clothes are visibly looser.
I have more energy.
I’m at a place where I know I can have more to eat but I don’t want too.
That’s huge for me.
My appestat; the region of the hypothalamus of the brain that is believed to control a person’s appetite for food is getting an overhaul with some AC tools.
A selection of non-drug, non-surgical tools available to help push the appestat demons that have plagued me for so long and have my appestat tuned correctly.
Dr. Bert Herring talks about our bodies being like a vehicle, and the important thing is not speeding through life…hmmmmmmmmm….I’ve just learned that lesson..lol♥
I’m thankful I’m getting though….
I am not getting paid to say this, to post this or to share.
I truly believe that this will be the last ‘diet’ book you will ever buy.
Well you may buy, but just this book a few more times…
Your going to want to share the love♥
24 hour fast today.
Didn’t plan on it, it just worked out that way.
I was sharing some of the benefits of this lifestyle with my boss today.
Clarity of mind.
I seriously am in awe of how I can deal with extremely stressful circumstances in a healthy and functional manner!~
That has NOT been the case before.
I’ve noticed since I’ve started to fast in 2008 that during the fasting state, I am able to handle the stress in such a way that instead of looking at the problems, I’m able to find the solutions.
I used to deal with stress by eating.
Sure didn’t help the stress at all. Problems were still there, plus I ended up having more…
Obese and in pain.
Are you only paying attention to the scale and or the other changes that are happening with this D.I.E.T.?
Since I don’t have a scale in the house, it is how I ‘feel’ about my ‘not at goal’ body.
I realize that I was so busy listening to my head hunger that I had ignored my body and the messages it was giving me.
Appetite Correction has given me the tools to correct my path that I was on.
My grand daughter had corrective surgery today for a bowel obstruction.
Her ‘correction’ now gives her the opportunity to eat♥
Appetite Correction has corrected my full button.
It was obstructed just like my grand daughter’s bowel.
I tell ya, my life is enriched each and every single day.
Sometimes I just have to look a bit harder♥
Today was not one of those days.
It was a glorious day of strength, peace, joy, love, laughter, faith, hope and comfort♥
