Eating right...
I find it hard to eat healthy everyday. My friends and family persuade me to go out to eat. Being busy with school and work make it hard to eat at home all the time. I'm not good at cooking so that also doesn't help.

Eating healthy to me usually means eating less. And, I get hungry! Ever try the Special K challenge? Sounds great, but really it's a joke. Two bowls of cereal a day? I'd pass out.

Mindless eating affects me too. I can't control myself enough to eat just one snack. I have to eat three or four at a time.

Even when I can get myself motivated to exercise, I can't seem to eat right at the same time.

    I definitely understand about eating out all the time. My fiance always wants to eat out. I'm not great at eating healthy, either, but I am getting better. When I think I am eating healthy, I eat about the same amount of food and don't feel hungry, but don't seem to get enough calories. Usually I am eating a lot of veggies when this happens. Balancing my diet has been one of the hardest things for me. Another is the motivation to exercise, even though I feel more energized after I do it.

    With the snacking, it might help if you buy 100 calorie packs or smaller bags so that it's easier to control what you eat. Another cheaper option for chips and other similarly packaged items would be to buy a large bag and then separate it out into Ziploc bags or small containers. That way, you wouldn't have the whole bag in front of you. Last night, my fiance and I had chips and salsa. I put a serving of chips onto a plate for me to eat so that I wouldn't eat too many.

    Or maybe when you're hungry, try snacking on fruit or yogurt. I'm pretty sure that eating yogurt every day was one of the ways I lost so much weight without trying last spring.

    Good luck with your healthy eating habits. I'm sure you'll get them under control emoticon
