Out of Sight, Out of Mind

Tuesday, September 02, 2014      1 comments

One of my biggest obstacles with my weight loss plan is that as soon as I'm away from my computer, my goals and plans are "out of sight, out of mind". I've recently had someone suggest I get tested for ADD, as I do tend to do that with a lot o... Read more

Well, I made it to day 2! That's something, right? I made better choices in my eating. I stopped myself when I wanted to munch before dinner was ready. I didn't scrounge around in the cabinet before bed looking for "something" to munch on. ... Read more
