Joining a team will help you meet like-minded people that share similar life situations or goals. You can join mine to start. I share many helpful tips, recipes and insights from my own journey so you too can benefit. The DAILY CHAT section has lots of helps.

No "starting tomorrow," or "waiting until after the holiday/birthday/weekend/day that ends in y."
No feeling sorry for myself or deprived.
No excuses that I can't exercise because I'm in a wheelchair or eat healthy foods because I have Crohn's or blaming the overeating on asthma medications.
No claiming confusion because of all the contradictory health articles and diets.
No saying I have to have a certain kind of food in my kitchen before I start, no saying I can't afford healthy foods.
No buying and taking weird supplements looking for a miracle.
No saying it's too late because I'm over 50.
No saying food relaxes me so I can sleep.
No getting take-out because I don't have the energy to cook.
No saying it's ok to make cookies/cakes/fried something because I will only eat a little.
