You Friends Have Taught Me So Much! Thank you!

So, what motivates me? It is going after QUALITY OF LIFE.

2014

After eating more and more veggies for nearly 2 years now, my food cravings seem much less. I used to want food just about 24 hours a day. Now, if I overeat, I think it is out of habit, not from cravings.

Let's see how 2014 goes. In fact my weight has been staying at the lower end of my weight range--closer to 250 rather than 260. ...

2014

After eating more and more veggies for nearly 2 years now, my food cravings seem much less. I used to want food just about 24 hours a day. Now, if I overeat, I think it is out of habit, not from cravings.

Let's see how 2014 goes. In fact my weight has been staying at the lower end of my weight range--closer to 250 rather than 260.

I am finally cooking real meals for myself. I have lots packed in the freezer . This is quite new for me!
___________________________________
Even though my cravings are much less, I think I am rebelling! I am trying still to hold on to those trips to the kitchen to get one or 2 things. Ridiculous. Breaking this habit is what I need to work on now in 2014.

I don't need those snacks between meals!
NO SNACKS! NO SECONDS! NO SWEETS! except for "S Days!"
This is really, really hard for me!

Eat G-BOMBS! Greens, Beans, Onions, Mushrooms, Berries and Seeds ...for reducing body inflammation and pain from FM.

We can do this, Friends! I can do this! You've come a long way, Baby!
