Thanks for posting that link! I actually bookmarked into a folder on my PC called "Healthy Lifestyle"

Although most of the ideas are not new to me, there were a few that took by surprise.

Lots of great tips there and I felt good that a lot of them are already part of my itinerary.

I have got to get a pedometer!!! I'm also fixing my bike today, so I can ride to my afternoon job. With my oldest son driving to school, there is no reason I have to drive while the weather is still nice.

So many great tips Carolyn! Thank you for sharing them :-) Yep, salsa is such a good food. Now I know another reason why! The yogurt tip has been a very important one for me. Nonfat Greek yogurt has truly been a good food for me and often fills my cravings for my former biggest culprit--ice cream. emoticon emoticon

Below find a link to a Reader's Digest article called, "Easy Ways to Lose Weight: 50+ Ideas". It has a very good list of weight loss tips for each of us! Enjoy.......

One tip I thought was good was, #30-- " Use flavorings such as hot sauce, salsa, and Cajun seasonings instead of relying on butter and creamy or sugary sauces."

What are some of the tips that you appreciate?
