I almost didnít post this when I saw how big I looked but that is who I am.I did change my shirt so big upper arms didnít flop too much. I had to rush as we ran out of memory twice. But hopefully I got enough in. I donít have a video recorder just my camera.
I wanted to thank my cyber daughter Robin(Feistymamma) for starting my day off with a smile. Also a big thank you to my hubby who was my camera man.

    I've yet t to get a scale but things like nuts I repackage immediately to prevent the "extra dipping". Your blog is a winner because not only is this great advice; also your passion behind your goal committment sparkles in your organization, face and vocal expression.

I respect your words more because you are in the process.

Best to many healthy years to both you and your camera man.

  Hi I'm Gladys I just viewed your awesome video. i LOVE THE IDEAS WITH THE BAGGIES COUNTED ALREADY. I am an organized person as well and this will help me keep track of my calories on a daily basis. I do have a question what kind of scale do u recommend best? U mentioned that you have a list of foods you eat the most witch tells you how many calories per ounce. I was wondering where can I get info like that? Thank you. emoticon

  These are great ideas to keep track of your calories. I have measuring cups and spoons, but I could use a scale. It would make it a lot easier to track my foods to ensure I am within my calorie range. Thank you for sharing!

  That's a very encouraging video with lots of tips except for one thing I already have a full time job. I am not a lazy person I just don't have the time to do all the things mentioned in the video. Preparing snacks is a great idea and I try to go for the more healthier things, but it's not always possible. By the time I get home from work all I want to do sometimes is sit in front of the television and mindlessly snack on what handy at the time.
