Last week was the week I was going to turn it all around, I did much better with food choices, except for a couple of slip ups, but I thought it was better, the scale said different.

I am getting so tired of doing this, but I know I can't quit. This is my life, and it's up to me to get healthy.

I just got the new Spark's Cook Book, I love it. I will be trying some new recipes, I think I'm tired of cooking the same things over and over, time for something different.

Please help me as I struggle to get back onto the path of healthy eating. I'm putting one foot in front of the other, I am going to get it right.

    good quote from Dr.Phil... the scale is not our friend --for awhile stay off the scale and see how your clothes fit... measure .... by the end of Nov. if you stay on track eating healthy like you know how to... then weigh in and redo your measurements.. see how you feel..and your clothes feel ..

like you said 1 foot in front of the other

Today has been a good day, just taking it one day at a time. I know I can do this.

So far this month I'm doing much better. I'm being more mindful of what I am eating. Making sure I'm getting in my fruits and veggies. When I got home from work tonight I did some batch cooking so will have a few more meals ready for the next few days. I know this is what I must do to be successful.

To be prepared is half the victory.

    I cannot be successful without preparation. The last week, I put my weightloss goals on the bottom of my priority list and it kicked my butt! I LOVE when I take the prep days and it serves me well for days! You've got the right idea for sure!! Keep it up and you WILL have fun on this journey! Good luck! and happy healthy eating! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Thats great to hear Barb. I remember when we cooked ahead we did good then. Remember jillians saying" Fail to plan , then plan to fail" those words always stick with me. Keep up the great focus

I know you can do it --you've done it before

So right being prepared is half the battle

I love the quote I added to today's blog. The one word that I know works for me is preparation. This is what I am working on this month. Preparing, taking the time to get my meals together and put in the fridge so there is no question about what will I have to eat. I was successful in the past with this plan and it's time to go back to this.



There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.

    What jumped out at me was---

Success/ action

Successful/ keep moving

Along with preparation, I need to put everything into action, I need to move my body. My mind needs to be in healthy mod at all times.

Thanks for the great blog, Barbara.

We will make November a great month.
