Hi, and thanks for stopping by! I've started on the path to a healthier me, and leaving the pounds behind. I'm feeling better, and finally really starting to see that difference. It was past time to make a drastic change, for my health and my sanity. I'm starting to like the new pics of me, but I still think the pics of my cats in my photo gallery are more fun :)

emoticon Checking on you and love to see how great you are doing.

I'm reading the BECK DIET SOLUTION, which isn't a "diet" but she teaches how to THINK like a THIN person. (Got a copy from the library.) I recommend it to everyone. (We have a support team here at Sparks.)
-------------------
Walking for five minutes is better than walking for zero minutes. Exercise is essential even if I don't do very much at first. I can build up the amount that I do over time, but I have to start somewhere.
-------------------
Hunger is never an emergency. It is only mildly uncomfortable. I can tolerate it. It will come and go.
---------------------
I really do deserve credit for breaking old habits and it is essential for building my confidence. Once my confidence grows everything will become so much easier.
-------------------------
If I want to lose weight permanently, I can't make exceptions. I'd rather be thinner. I can't overeat on week-ends or any other time.
-----------------------
I have to develop the habit of eating every bite slowly, while sitting down, so I can fully enjoy it. It is worth developing this habit, so that I can have a lifetime of being thinner.
---------------------------------
I'm not going to let any minor setback ruin everything I've accomplished. One mistake dosn't ruin my diet, but falling back into old habits will.
I will recommit to my diet right here, right now!
----------------------------
Exercise is not negotiable for good health. It needs to be a daily lifetime habit and I need to make it so. The hardest part is getting started. I'll feel so much better when I'm done. So get started!
------------------------
OH WELL! I'm going to ignore this craving. I'm going to do something and let it subside. I'm turning my attention to something else, like exercise.

Thanks for the comment ElvenCat! I love my fur kids and actually just lost my oldest which is the furry one in the pic the twins are 5 and Sassie the Aussi just pasted on April 5th she was 15 going on 16 so lived a very long healthy life. How are you doing on the HCG diet? I just started today and I am a little scared about giving up all the "bad" stuff but I know I am ready for a new adventure I would love to see an updated photo. How much has your total loss been? emoticon
