Remember, bananas are high on the glycemic index and spike your insulin which makes the stomach pump out GHERLIN the hunger hormone so we crave for sugar/starches. Strawberries and apples are low on the index. emoticon

Okay this sounds weird but I decided that I can give myself goals and for every daily goal I accomplish, put a quarter in the weight loss jar. Also, for every mile I walk a day in excess of my goals. I started at 192 and got on a slippery slope after I reached 188 and decided spice things up by adding my daily reward to be used at certain milestones (like each 10lbs.).
