  MISS CHAR, GLAD YOU SAID IT WAS A "BETTER" DAY SO THAT MEANS THE DAY BEFORE WAS A "GOOD" DAY EVEN IF YOU DID EAT SOMETHING YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE. DOESN'T MEAN YOU FAILED OR DID SOMETHING BAD...ESPECIALLY SINCE YOU REALIZED IT. CONFESSION IS GOOD FOR THE SOUL. YOU CONFESSED. DONE. IN THE PAST. IT'S A NEW DAY! NOW, THERE ARE NO BAD FOODS. JUST UNHEALTHY ONES. WE NEED TO BE MINDFUL OF WHAT WE ARE EATING. I'M LOOKING AT THINGS...AND THEN THINKING ABOUT IT BEFORE IT GOES INTO MY MOUTH. ACTUALLY HAD HEALTHY PIZZA...YUP, HEALTHY...TODAY...THIN CRACKER-LIKE CRUST WITH HALF CHEESE AND LOADS OF GREEN PEPPERS, OLIVES, MUSHROOMS AND BANANA PEPPERS! TWO SLICES WERE LESS THAN 300 CALORIES. SO SEE, EVEN WHAT WE THINK OF AS BAD FOOD, CAN BE HEALTHY.

MINDFUL HUGS,
MAURI

    CHAR I am the same very way with Lays' Potato Chips so I can soooo relate, when they are back where the snacks are I avoid that area, cause I can't say to no to that at all, I actually stopped eating them because of the salt, and now, I find them way to salty but will eat them anyway so nope not for me I need to get healthy, just like you.

Are you hard on yourself? YUP a bit but you know you better and you know just how hard you need to be on you; once those good habits are developed you'll not give it a thought... keep on truckin gurlfriend you doing great !!! emoticon emoticon

    Char,

You have done it in the past and you will do it again GF! I was offered some Smart Popcorn with the white cheese on it yesterday and as much as I looked at it, I turned it down. I knew too that if I started on it, that would be it! So better not to even have a taster!

You are a driven person and you will succeed!

    Patience, and perserverance, as you are setting a good example for those you work with and they will notice more by your actions rather then your words...so keep taking your snacks and avoid theirs, and you know its the msg in that stuff that is keeping you wanting it, msg is addicting LIKE A DRUG... so just as you would say NO to drugs, say NO to those snacks.. just reading the ingrediences on the package is enough for me sometimes..but other times I have to perservere.... you are doing great, your putting all your ducks in a row emoticon emoticon

    Char,

I am with you and a lot of others on this team. It would be so much fun to meet each other and maybe even spend a weekend together somewhere.

We all know how much fun those virtual parties are, well just imagine a real one with all of us there!

    CHAR...LIKE YOU I AM SO EXCITED AT THE PROSPECT OF MEETING MEMBERS OF "MY" TEAM. I AM IN AWE THAT I CAN FEEL SUCH A DEEP FRIENDSHIP TOWARDS PEOPLE I HAVE NOT PHYSICALLY MET. I THINK IT IS BECAUSE WE ALL HAVE A COMMON PROBLEM AND GOAL THAT HAS DRAWN US TOGETHER. BUT STILL THIS WONDERFUL TEAM, THIS ONE POUND AT A TIME FAMILY IS CLOSER THAN ANY OTHER TEAM I HAVE BEEN ON. WE ARE SO BLESSED TO HAVE SUCH A GROUP.

I HOPE A FEW MORE CAN JOIN US WHEN WE GET TOGETHER IN THE SPRING AND STILL MORE IN LANCASTER THIS SUMMER!!!!!
