I get up every morning with this on my mind and I take it with me daily, and live by the hour, minute, even the second. That this is NO DIET! This is my lifestyle . . . my life. Living a healthy life style is hard work very hard work. Every day I make decisions on what I'm going to put into my body and how it's going to change my life. So today at work my co-workers called me up and asked if I want to pitch in to get Chinese food. My stomach was screaming YES, YES! So I said let me think about it. I thought, and thought, and when I went to my co-worker she said if you think long you think wrong. So I said okay, I'm in. I came back to my desk and the entire walk I felt horrible as if I walking on death row or something. I just couldn't see myself doing it. My weigh-in was successful on Tuesday and I was happy and in a good place. So I told them, I just can't do it. I've set a goal for myself and I'm going to make a decision today that I can live with. Thanks for including me but no thanks.

It took me some time, but I now realize this is no diet that I'm on. This is my lifestyle. I have to do this every day for the rest of my life, if I want to get the weight off and keep it off. I have to make a decision on what I decide to put into my body every single day. Actually every single hour. I know the consequences if I have a candy bar or a beer. So I think long and hard and I make choices that I can live with. I love snicker bars, but I love the way my size 12 jumpsuit fit me yesterday. So instead of a candy bar in my mouth you will see me snacking on some healthy protein or vegetables.
