“We can make choices.  We can create options to maximize our inner peace and serenity, our health, and our sense of self-worth.”  Edward T. Creagan, M.D.  Mayo Clinic

Several months ago I joined the Mayo Clinic Diet on-line program.  I receive daily menus, suggestions, and other tools for healthy weight loss/maintenance.


The menus and recipes are easy to follow and take the guesswork out of what to eat every day. The best part is that I feel satisfied. Plus, I know that I am eating the nutrients that my body needs.

Each day’s email starts with a quote from a Mayo Clinic health professional.

It makes me feel as though they are talking directly to me.

It works.

  1. Making choices….This is the intrinsic TRUTH of a serene life. I choose today that I will walk with KINDNESS in my heart and in my outpouring to others (for example). I will choose to eat or not to eat that. I ultimately do have a CHOICE. Freewill is our greatest God-given Gift. We can choose to walk above and beyond the circumstances or we can choose to wallow there. I am FURIOUS. I am justified to be so. However, I can choose to respond in kind and blaze like a furnace back or I can choose (after a deep breath) to respond with quiet dignity. (Easy no way… I learning…I hope so) thanks Lori. Blessings and Peace going to you this day.

    1. Yes, I really like the variety of the food, the no-brainer meal planning & shopping. Plus, it has curbed my snacking and helped with portion control. I do love food and socializing so it’s easy to over eat. How are you doing? I hope the New Year is filled with much joy for you!
