    Hi! Are you trying to stick to the recipes in the book? I find that if I am getting just a little bit of protein in at each meal/snack, then I finish the day right on track. What I find that works is just keeping some lean turkey breast on hand, or some boneless/skinless chicken, and then I add 2-3 oz of it here and there throughout the day. This morning I had a Thomas' English light Multigrain Muffin with 1 microwaved large egg, .5 oz baby spinach, 2 oz turkey. Tastes great and is great for you! Packed with protein and great before a workout! Hope that helps :) Keep up the good work! - Stephanie

    emoticon sounds like you are off to a great start. Protein is my downfall too. I use a supplement to top mine up. But I eat mostly fresh foods.

So, I feel like every blog I have written lately has been about my NOT being on track. Sadly, this time is no different. I did really well for about 2 weeks and then BAM -- back to old, bad habits. I am so afraid that I am going to let my weight get away from me again. Why can't I control myself? I have to recommit myself -- and start focusing on my health and weight. I have to get past the instant gratification of tasty food.

    I can relate to getting off on track! Look at the positive: you recognize the fact that you get off track and you jump right back on. It doesn't matter that you fall off, I am sure at some point, the old you would have gotten off track and stayed off for far longer. When it is right it is all going to fall into place!

    Sweetie, you're not alone on this! Sad but true, I am having the very same routine. I can do well for about 2 weeks, and then, like you said, BAM, for some reason I fall off track. Is it because we are afraid of success? Is it an emotional reason or is it the "Monthly" reason? There are times during all of our weeks that are harder to stay strong than others. That's when we really put our determination to the test! Never give up! We will succeed at this! You know you can!

    Why don't you try this, create a new healthy habit and focus on one new healthy habit at a time and don't think in the sense of stopping bad habits. Does that make sense?

    Hi! Just wanted to pop in quickly and let you know that I can understand your feeling of not wanting to fail.

It's tough to say no to foods we want. Really tough. Remember that only you can make that decision. I find it's easier not to eat badly when it's not in the house but that's tough sometimes. One tip you might be able to use to that everytime you want to have a treat write down what it is you want to have. Then try to go without it and at the end of the week take a look at your treats list and let yourself have one. That gives you something to look forward to as well. It doesn't even have to be a whole week. Just try that one day putting it off.
