There are too many things I love that come out in this season! Everything from Boo-Berry cereal to Reeses Pumpkins. I try to avoid all of it. My favorite are these special pumpkin muffins I make with cream cheese filling, mmm...

Anything with pumpkin!

Weight loss is accomplished with the mind.


A person who wants something WILL find a way....a person who doesn't will find an excuse.

Which do you prefer?
The pain of self discipline?....or...the pain of self regret?

Exercise 1st... Spark 2nd. Works for me!

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't I give myself reasons why I can.

Tired of starting over? Stop giving up!!

I love baked sweet potatoes with brown sugar and butter. But I'll make sure when I have it, I allow for the calories, etc, so I won't go over for the day. It's something I only have 3-4 times a year so when I do have it, I enjoy it.

Mine would be Starbuck's pumpkin spice latte, and a little later in the fall their eggnog latte. I also allow myself one teeny-tiny bag of candy corn each Halloween season.

luckily i'm not much of a sweets person. Halloween and the holidays do not bother me much when it comes to sweets. Now, the good rich food that is readily available during these times is my downfall so I have to be extra careful during this time of year.

I was wondering if anyone out there has some "Fall Treats" that you have to monitor and eat in moderation. emoticon

For me, its candy corn (only 1 small bag is allowed), candied apples ( I only allowed myself 1 down in Myrtle Beach,SC from the homemade candy shops), and well pumpkin ice cream. This I limit myself to 1 or 2 scoops with hot fudge on top and I savor each bite since I only get this once a year. I love baking with canned pumpkin and usually make pumpkin bread muffins to keep portions in control and no SUPER size ones, just the old muffin tins I grew up with.

How about you?
