The kitchens are set...

(With a nod to Cupcake Wars)

The goodies are all here in my kitchen. I've got a gorgeous, retro-looking red stand mixer. I've got great new cookware, an instant-read probe thermometer, an immersion blender -- all the bells and whistles.

So now to start cooking. I need to learn to cook others' recipes first, then start developig my own. Right now, my flavor combinations don't work out the way I think they will, so I need practice and to learn how things will develop ...

So...who'd like to be a guinea pig? ;)

Give yourself a healthy weight pep talk today:

Whenever I sit down to eat, I am determined to achieve my goal. By never giving in and eating right, I will reach my healthy weight.

I really enjoy eating less, whether in a restaurant or at home. I donít have to finish the food in front of me anymore. I eat what I should and never one bite more.

When there is less food on my plate, there is less food on my fork. By ordering less when I eat out and giving myself small portions at home, it keeps me aware of staying with my goal each day. Less on my plate means less on my waist.

I will not allow anyone to influence, tempt, or discourage me in any negative way. Reaching my goal is up to me. No one has the right to control my success.

I am losing weight for my own reasons; for my life, my future, my personal health. No one will tempt me to take one more bit than I should. I am strong. I can reaching my goal.

A lot of food in front of me is no longer a problem. I just say no to the food and yes to my success.

I enjoy sitting down to eat because it gives me time to conquer my past and create a more active, self-confident, and healthier future.

I donít need someone else to remind me of my goal or to keep me from eating something I shouldnít. Iím responsible for myself and my body. No one can do it for me.

Itís easy for me to control my weight and appetite now. I enjoy smaller portions and smaller bites. I eat slower and am more relaxed in every way.

I am healthier.

Mealtime is achievement time for me."
