Life is kinda like a mountain trail, you can look at it or you can hike it, either way it is up to you to make the choice.

Choosing a route, a routine, an eating program that will support a healthy life, but also an enjoyable one. A life with NO chocolate would not be great..so I will have some. A life without bread..one of my great weaknesses, would not be fun. .. so I will have some!
The bottom line is SOME..not ALL and within reason!

I believe after floating my boat thru several trials and errors in both eating programs and exercise insanities..that moderation is indeed the key. CI/CO...is still the best way to go! Thus said it is up to me to moderate what goes in and what effort goes out!

Success as they say rests in your hands. But you must follow the path to find it. So easy to fail...give up and just say..Thas how it is.

Not This Time..Not Me...This time I believe in ME..

    The Emerald Gems are a great team!! I think you will like them. I have to admit I wasn't thrilled at first to be a LOVELY LIME....after all, they are a bit......round. Turns out to be the best group of Sparkers ever.

    HA! SAME CHOCOLATE!! emoticon

    Thank you for your kind words on my blog. The closer I get to my goal weight ... the more life lessons keep catching up with me.

    My doc suggested an elimination protocol due to the fact that I have hypothyroidism. This means I eat lean protein to include eggs; non starchy veggies at each of my three meals; low glycemic fruits and healthy fats. It has made a HUGE difference in my life.

    This means I have eliminated gluten, diary, soy and sugar. At the six month mark ... I will add back some food items s-l-o-w-l-y. This isn't for everyone ... but it has worked for me.

    We had a lovely breakfast, and we did go shopping afterwards to A.C. Moore. I got disc magnets and gift bags for my craft show in November, and a skein on nubbly white yarn to knit people scrubbies with! Your chickens are lucky to have you as their "mom"!!
