SSBBW / FA Quote of the Moment

"One of the greatest joys of being an SSBBW is the knowledge we gain from being our size...If someone is your friend, and accepts you as you are and doesn't try to change you, then you know the soul of that person, and you know that they are quality individuals." ~ Ceci [SSBBW]

Along with those non-natural phenomenon, we can celebrate the bountiful harvests of vegetables, fruits, and grains that begin to appear at this time. Delicious stews and soups make their way onto dinner and supper tables everywhere.

Tips to Reduce your Stress

These ideas were adapted from an advertisement created by General Mills.

Physical activity is THE best form of stress relief out there. When we are less stressed, our eating becomes more controlled and we make better choices. We also tend to decrease cravings and increase energy. With our busy lives, exercise sometimes feels like a mountain not worth climbing; however, incorporating even tiny bursts of activity through the day can start to make a difference. Challenge yourself to add in some wall push-ups or a 5 minute walk today. If you can accomplish that every day this week, what could you add next week? Building a base is essential - you will feel stronger and stronger as time goes on. It's not easy, and it takes mental & physical effort to make long-term changes, but I know you can do it. Hang in there. Never give up!
