forget about the chocolate chips, throw some fresh blueberries into those pancakes!

The only loser is your body fat, so get moving!

Broke is normal. Why be normal?

If your friends that are broke aren’t making fun of you, then you are not on track. If your family says, “Look, they’ve joined a cult!” then you are right on track.

I think it's cool that you had to think about it...you realized what you had previous thought patterns, but you've made a healthy change.

I just realized they other day that I am down to drinking soda one day a week when I got out with friends for dinner and even then I limit my soda drink to one glass.

Also, I have my emergency chocolate stash and I haven't had to use it!

I agree with you too. For me, I am trying to make this a lifestyle change. Not a diet!!

You are right. We all have to change our way of life. For me the hardest part involves cooking for my family. They all like fried and fattening foods. I have cooked them forever (My favorite food in the world is emoticon ) My son is 13 and he is the youngest. I get a lot of disagreement from them. That's okay though, I am learning daily that I am stronger than they give me credit for.
Keep up the good work, I know you will suceed.

Have a blessed day! emoticon

Changing my ways of thinking is a bigger goal for me then losing weight. If I don't change my lifestyle, I won't succeed at losing weight and keeping it off. I am not here to diet. I am here to change from having bad, unhealthy habits of eating and not exercising. I have to change my way of thinking. We all do!

Healthy living is a process of learning!

Good for you! I know to some people that would be such a small step, but I know how big that really is. My small step that really was a large one for me was not noticing that I haven't touched a soda in 3 weeks until yesterday. To me that is huge! I've been addicted to coca-cola classic since I was a girl. I totally understand where you are coming from. Congratulations!

I was busy making myself 2 pancakes this morning using Jiffy Mix which only requires skim milk to make and I realized I hadn't even thought about using chocolate chips. Normally I wouldn't eat a pancake without some chocolate in it, but today it didn't even cross my mind until the pancakes were cooking and even then I just knew I didn't need them. I see this as such a big step! I'm finally starting to think differently about food and being careful, the journaling really helps!
