sometimes you just need a treat! Sometimes it holds you off until dinner; sometimes it helps get you through a bad mood; sometimes a little taste is all you need (instead of a regular sized piece); sometimes it motivates you in other ways; sometimes it's the reward you promised yourself for reaching that goal. Whatever the reason, enjoy it!

I've lost 86 pounds and after more than 50 years of being obese, I've learned -- to a large extent due to SparkPeople -- how to eat and move to live at the weight I've wanted to be since I was a teenager! I wake up every morning amazed to see me in the mirror.

While I was losing, I found that treats really helped me reward myself and stay motivated. Sometimes it was a bubble bath, a manicure, a massage, some new make up, or a new smaller outfit. Other times, yummy foods in sensible serving sizes were just what I needed to keep me from feeling deprived and to satisfy those inevitable cravings An extra bonus of enjoying treats along the way was that I entered the maintenance phase already confident that I could handle an occasional treat. Establishing a healthy daily eating routine with lot of fruits and veggies, low fat dairy, a little healthy oil, whole grains, and lean protein, means that on special occasions, an indulgence is not only allowed, but absolutely necessary to enjoy life to the fullest!!

My Keys to Success = Tracking! Super Foods! Step Up Cardio! And most important: Quit Quitting!!
