You can walk off the fat but you cannot walk off the free radicle damage caused by the glycation that takes place every time you have a high sugar food. The same free radicle damage that is eating away at your joints. Choose sprouted grain foods as this will reduce the damage dramatically.
If i see anything within reason i fancy i will have it and then walk it off,despite having arthritic hips and knees,the more you persevere the more weight you lose the less pain when walking,the more weight comes off,the more confident you grow.I walk a mlie every morning and the same in the evening if i feel like it,last year before i started to dieting i had trouble mowing a small lawn,i have lost 6 stone inless than a year,it can be done just persevere.

Way to go! I know it is hard. Im starting class again tomorrow. This is when i always cheat and eat out of boredom. I hope i can be as strong as you tomorrow!
Well done Nuggan. What you may not know is that baked goods are shown in studies around the world to be a major factor in diseases including, diabetes, heart disease and even cancer. Your stand will help you, your children and the readers of your post to stay away from these unhealthy choices. This addictive food even halves the lifespan of animals fed on them. More steps to good health.
I would suggest you not buy them for your kids either. Set a good example for them now so they won't struggle with their weight later. For an occasion cookie treat, make homemade oatmeal cookies and put in 1/4 to 1/2 the sugar listed in the recipe. I would also use a fraction of any oils they suggest. Works for my family!

Excellent job! I love cookies, but I really love fruit, too! I think that would sate me. Though I did bake a (small) batch of cookies tonight. Froze the rest so I can continue making SMALL batches of cookies! :)
I am so proud of you! I am nineteen, and going to college(a sophomore). Over the summer my mother knew I was on a diet and kept buying these massive 2,000 calorie apple caramel muffins... At first I would give into temptation, then I would have to hid the muffins from myself.... Then I got to the point where I did not care how many muffins or how much chocolate she brought into the house; I wouldn't think twice about them. It was great practice for the dining halls at Cornell, because often they place the deserts infront of the fruit and salad bars(why even hit up the salad bar, when there is a COOKIE BAR RIGHT THERE! Yeah... I gained alot freshman year...). Now I walk right pass the "cookie bar" and the first thing on my plate is always spinach or broccoli.
Wow I am also impressed, I really know how difficult it is to resist cookies. Shamefully I ate a bunch today and I don't get to say I beat temptation. But next time I think I will remember what you did and trrrry to resist. I have overcome eating chocolates-so I do have some success, But next it's got to be those beckoning cookies!

I bought these big delicious sugar and chocolate chip cookies at the store today for my kids. The ones from the bakery, and they are SOOOO good.
After a fairly nutritionally negative day, I measured out my cup of chili (which is more than I thought!) and skipped the cheese and chips.
I bought myself a parfait of fresh blueberries and strawberries with whipped cream to replace the cookie. I was still tempted to have one, especially since my husband, kids and mother asked me if I wanted one. But I PASSED IT UP!
My son said "Mommy, it's okay to have sweets sometimes." I said "I know, but Mommy eats them more than 'sometimes' and that is why I'm in the state I'm in!"
