Yes, I need help, I don't like what I see every time I step on the dreaded scale.



And what I've been doing isn't working. I'm not following my food plan, I know my portions are overboard, and last week I was into the hallowe'en candy.



I have always admired what Helen Philips did the year she won Biggest Loser, I didn't care for her and her attitude, but in the long run I realized she stayed focused on this was for her, she needed to get healthy and was considered a terrible mom cause she stayed on the ranch and let her daughter go home. She was also in her 50's and I always thought, at her age if she can do it so can I.

    Just take each day on it's own. You can do anything for one day. I know you will get back on track. I'm so glad that you posted that you needed help; I think that is a key to success: knowing when to ask for help.

    well Barb wish I had the magic problem solver.. I don't or I wouldn't be here lol I would be rich and living in hawaii..- on that note --

we have to want!!!
we have to need
we have to desire

set your mind that nothing and I mean nothing will detain you are distract you from the finish line..
if you can not resists then it does not come into the house
if you are eating too much then take a smaller plate and eat with a small fork ect..--no seconds..
the big thing -- which I am fighting
no whites meaning no sugars ect.. nothing with sugar in it.

Just things that I know I must do for me so maybe this will work for you too..

Lastly believe in you and that YOU are worth it..
- what would Shannon Ryan -- Ken and Kathy -- Mary and me to name a few - do with you not around to scold us to laugh with us to listen to us .. to hug us to be there for us --

hugs my friend YOU can do this
now stop being hard on yourself push forward and do what you know needs to be done for YOU
hugs hugs hugs

    Grrrr! Isn't this journey so frustrating at times?! I think so! We want the scale to move, the pants to fit better, to feel better, and so much...but it's a journey...a process... it takes time! You're doing great! You can do this! Look that Halloween in the eye and tell it, it may be sweet, but you are sweeter. I don't need you! Easy said, but I know you can do it!
If that doesn't work, you could always try this...I always buy the kinds I don't like. Then I'm not tempted. I could NEVER have candy corn in the house and not devour every last morsel. emoticon

    Barb thatsw hat is wrong with BL, those people are not in the real world, they are not at home or work or going to family events.....think about ho nice it could be if you could just wake and take care of you, have trainers, and food that is healthy, nothing to do all day but exercise...

Don't be so hard on your self....
