Chances are if you are contemplating a New Year's Resolution, shedding those extra pounds is at the top of your list, according to a Marist Poll.

The best time to make a weight loss commitment is sooner rather than later, according to Dr. Pamela Peeke, chair of the Jenny Craig Science Advisory Board who is sharing four good reasons to make a pre-New Year's Resolution.

1. You'll love your holiday photos. How often have you avoided pictures because you didn't feel good about being in front of the camera? So often people will avoid picture taking because they weren't happy with their weight.  Make a commitment now and you can feel healthier and more confident during the holidays and have the photos to remember those special moments.

2. You'll be more proactive and procrastinate less.  You are waiting until January to start a weight loss program but you may be just delaying the inevitable.  To wait can set you up for procrastination and procrastination may actually be harmful according to the Association for Psychological Science, causing higher levels of stress and lower well-being. Resolve to start losing weight now before the holiday madness begins and while you have the drive and momentum that you want to do this.  Motivation is the KEY when it comes to preparing the psyche for any behavior change says Dr. Peeke.

3. Starting Now Means a different Resolution in January.  Begin your weight loss journey now can give you the confidence to tackle a different resolution in January. Make a realistic New Year's Resolution. You want to lose 10 lbs. just set a realistic goal instead of trying to do it in a week or two. Remember, weight came on 1 lb. at a time and that is the way it comes off.  Motivation is the key that will help with your next challenge. A side note, eating many sugary sweets such as those extra Christmas cookies and candy can lead to really feeling low energy, blah, and affecting your mood. This has been proven so why do you want to overindulge.

4. The Time is Right.  Many Americans start the holiday season with Halloween and then it is three months of overindulgence. The average American starts to gain weight around Thanksgiving, with weight gain peaking around the December holidays or the New Year and it can take up to 5 months to lose it according to Cornell University's Food & Brand Lab.  If you can adopt healthy habits BEFORE the holidays, you may counteract these effects to gain less or even maintain your weight during the holidays. Instead of waiting until 2020 to make changes, get a head start on your resolution and your journey to better health.    Information from StatePoint Media

       How do we become the people we are today?  What did we go through during our growing
up?  Have you every wondered why we are the way we are?

      My childhood was somewhat difficult but you know everybody grows up with something.  My parents did the best they could and I was probably a little bit of a rebellious spirit.  I did love school but had a problem with always comparing myself to somebody.  Why wasn't I prettier, Why wasn't I smarter, Why wasn't I shorter, etc.  The list goes on and on.

     When you have these things running in your head, maybe you can become a little confused?
Getting to my personal message which was my weight.  I always thought I was too heavy and 
even when I got to my goal weight, I still thought I was heavy.  Isn't that dumb? 

     Today I found a program that has helped me so much.  A Cleanse program that made me
eat only the right fruits and veggies and drink plenty of purified water with also some
supplements a.m. and p.m.  Guess what?  Since I have come off the Cleanse and now eating
clean food and eliminating the non-nutritional food (that's what I call sugar products) I am
feeling so good about myself.  I am making the right food choices and thinking about what I
put into my body and it is working.  

This is the first time I have been able to not cheat with this program as I want to achieve my 
goal, which is 5 more lbs to lose and I will be what I weighed in high school.  Now that deserves an applause!  👍  Congratulations to me, the Shaklee Healthy Cleanse works and I am living proof, an 80+ woman who is talented, loves herself, and wants to empower people to do what she is doing, getting healthy and staying healthy. Do you know anyone who needs to be empowered?

With our complex lives in the 21st century, more and more people are suffering from stress-related conditions.  The negative impact of stress can affect many areas of health. One area in particular that can be adversely affected is the adrenal glands.

When you experience stress over a long period of time, the adrenals weaken, negatively affecting the body and resulting in adrenal fatigue.  What are some of the symptoms of adrenal fatigue? Here are a few:  Excessive, unexplained tiredness, craving for salty or sugary foods, difficulty in handling stress, more infections, etc.  These are just a few.

The best diet for your adrenals.....Lots of water, pumpkin seeds, sardines, liver, grass-fed meat, wild game and wild caught salmon, non-starchy vegetables, clarified butter, coconut oil, coconut water, avocados, olives, lean, organic chicken and turkey, walnuts, almonds, and chia and flax seeds.

The adrenals can affect your thyroid. Constant stress and anxiety influences your body's metabolism and unhappy and unhealthy adrenal glands can cause you to metabolize food improperly.  This can lead to hypothyroidism, slowing down of your metabolism.  Some of the healthy conditions that can occur are:

Fatigue and weakness, memory loss, muscle cramps, aches and pains, hair loss, weight gain or inability to lose weight, coarse, dry, prematurely aged hair and skin.  These are just a few of the symptoms.

Some of the supplements that can help your adrenals are B-complex, Vitamin D3, Zinc, Vita-E complex and also VitalMag.  If you don't eat foods rich in healthy, fatty acids, add Omega Guard.
These supplements are Shaklee supplements, guaranteed to work with clinical studies behind them.

Are you under stress?  Isn't it time to do something about it? Harriet Cole

Do you ever rest from technology? Have you ever rested from your phone or TV or other forms of media?  Read what Andy Crouch, author of "The Tech-Wise Family".  Good advice on how to cultivate rest in the lives of yourself and your family.

"Well, I'll tell you the one thing that people seem to find most helpful. A simple principle is our devices are not always being on.  I recommend a rhythm of at least one hour a day, one day a week, and one week a year, the whole family being free from anything that glows, and as much as possible from other forms of technology as well.  Our family has a day a week largely free.  Our "hour a day" is around dinnertime for us -- for families with smaller children, bedtime may make the most sense.  And I think it is important to have a week or more a year that is technology-free.  Not every family  has the means or opportunity to take a week vacation, but many do, and to
