Being prepared was my biggest advantage when I went through a jammed schedule for a couple years. You know you are going to end up grabbing a meal at a fast food place on occasion - so take the time to look up the nutritional info at each place you might hit. I looked up the top two choices I could grab at any of them when I needed a fast meal rather than no meal (which is horrible for your metabolism). I was shocked to find that often the healthiest items were NOT the salads. I don't grab fast food much any more - and NEVER crave it like I used to - but when I do grab some, I know I haven't blown my nutrition for the day.
“Do not let your fire go out spark by irreplaceable spark... Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real…. It is possible…. It’s yours. “ Ayn Rand (Atlas Shrugged)
I think being a good example of moderation to your kids is a worthy reason to change eating habits.

Hi. I'm a busy mom of 4 kids. I work a full time job and a part time job and between all that I've really let myself pack on the pounds! I want to loose weight in order to be a healthy example for my children. I'm going to start by exercising and staying away from fast food! I love using sparkpeople for motivation because in the past I've lost sight of my goals very easily. I'm going to stay on track this time because I want to be around to see my kids all grown up.
