Hi I’m Dixie. I’m super excited that you stopped by today! Just like you I’ve struggled with getting healthy and taking care of myself. I know your battles my friend because they’re mine too.

I’m five feet tall with a petite frame and I gain weight easily. I love to cook and bake and eat good tasting food. I eat when I’m stressed and sad, to reward myself and to  celebrate with others.

I’ve tried lots of diets and programs.

I’ve learned that diets don’t work for long. No one wants to live a life of deprivation.

Little lifestyle changes made the difference for me!


I’ve lost 20% of my body weight and have kept it off for 9 1/2 years.


We all know keeping the weight off is the really hard part.  I want to give you hope that you can make little changes just like I did!

Instead of a diet I made lifestyle changes that are now a part of my daily habits. Little changes that I can keep doing for the rest of my life. I call them steps.  Two of my best lifestyle changes are switching to a smaller plate and replacing most beverages with water.

To embrace a healthy life style I have realized that we need to include our body, mind and spirit in our healthy choices.  We often just focus on our food choices and adding in exercise. We neglect our minds and how our thinking affects our choices. We hardly ever involve our spirit.

But I have learned that a healthy lifestyle needs to incorporate our body, mind and spirit for long-term success.

As a follower of Jesus Christ I want you to know that God loves you and cares about your health. His power is available for the asking!

I only post once a week, on a Monday evening.  I offer easy to understand little steps that you can incorporate into your busy life, no matter how busy you are.

I want you to make lifestyle changes too, because they work!

I want you to win!

You aren’t alone in your struggles.  

You can do this my new friend!
