“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

Loved my sweet potato Thursday and my Triscuits - the low salt kind!

The only store bought meat I can eat well is Costco's fresh roast chicken. They come in handy when I'm visiting Mom, who just has a microwave and doesn't cook meat in it. The salt ruins me ONLY if I eat the skin, which I don't anymore x an occasional tiny bite, or those 2 times least year when I made stock with the skin and bones. Didn't measure the 1st time. The 2nd time, I weighed myself a couple days later and was up at least 7 lbs. NEVER doing that again!

In my latest efforts to track my foods and work my weight down to a "normal" range I've pretty much given up all of those processed meats which USED to be staples left over from my old Atkins mentality.

It's all the "real thing" these days!

Happy Thursday to you!


Your challenge today is to concentrate REALLY HARD on eating: LEAN PROTEINS & WHOLE GRAIN CARBS
Don't even look at highly processed proteins (i.e. lunch meat, hot dogs, etc.) or enriched white flours (i.e. donuts, white bread, white flour crackers, enriched white pasta, etc.)

Today, try having these healthy alternatives:

*Grilled fish or chicken
*Whole grains breads and cereals
*Legumes (beans are a GREAT source of fiber)
*Soy
*Brown Rice
*Sweet potatoes (a flavorful, vitamin-packed alternative to the standard potato)
*Air-popped popcorn (skip the butter & salt!)

Think about it this way, how does your body REALLY feel after eating junk? The expert on the show I watched said that junk food consumption leads to: migraines, Diabetes, Heart Disease, memory problems, tooth decay, sluggishness, bad complexion, bowel problems (and the list goes on and on).

This list is all about "1 Day At A Time". THIS IS A LIFESTYLE CHANGE. You can't do it all in a day. Just take one day at a time. YOU CAN DO IT!

Have a FANTASTIC Thursday!
