You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.
Mistakes are the portals of discovery.
Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.
It is never too late to be what you might have been.
Hi all, I haven't posted here yet-been on SP about a week & a half, I can't seem to quit having sugar cravings, or it's also a mind thing-think I will be satisfied if I eat them. Yes, FB is really good about those great desserts. I try to post healthy ones, but still doesn't fix the "fix"!

Or you can look at facebook only after a good and filling meal, LOL, yes I realize what I'm asking. One of the problem with sugar and other high-carb foods is that it raises insulin which brings sugar levels in our blood down too much which is why we are hungry again every hour or two. Eat other foods that are higher in protein and especially that are higher in fact and you won't be hungry and not tempted as badly. I was amazed when I found out that after 2 weeks on a low-carb/high-fat diet I could suddenly resist the sweet temptations. Before just seeing them would get my brain into insulin-producing mode. This is classical conditioning and can be changed over time. Birgit

Ugh. I hate checking my facebook and find delicious looking fudge pics or cake that will melt in your mouth pics, you get my drift. I'm doing fine until I see some of those pictures and that makes my sweet tooth go crazy. It makes me want to go hit the vending machine for something sweet to eat.
