Healthy Inspiration from SparkPeople

Motivational Quote - Nothing tastes as good as healthy feels.

SparkPeople's Comments

The next time you want to "cheat" on your diet with a fattening treat, imagine how good your body and mind will feel after you've turned it down. It might taste good for a few minutes, but knowing you made the right choice will feel so much better in the long run.

Every Saturday my Husband buys a coffee cake. This is his breakfast before going golfing. After he takes a fair amount that darn coffee cake sits there and calls me all day. I resist it, not so easily, because I know how I'll feel if I eat it. It's not worth it. I'm feeling too good.

But once in a blue moon, YES! ENJOY. What blue moon would be is up to you, right?
You are the one who would benefit by being downfall is dim sum, not donuts right now....but I did have one two weeks ago.

That's the thing, isn't it?? When you want to cheat, you think, "But it makes me soooo happy to eat that!" but the truth is, while you may feel happy while eating it, you don't feel happy during the rest of the day. So I try to remind myself of this when I see those tasty donuts!

Those gooey donuts tastes mighty good to me-- but they are BAD, and they are not worth it-!! Not worth it--- at all.

This is a great article. Very informative and helpful. I, personally, am not tempted by donuts, but if I want one, I will allocate it in my menu, while still eating 5 veggies and fruits in my diet!

I agree that food is supposed to taste good. I am a "foodie" and I love really good food.
I love sweets and I allow myself to eat them sometimes.
The key is remembering that 1 doughnut will always have less calories 2 doughnuts!

All I have to do is think off the knee replacements I'm gonna need pretty soon if I keep at the horrible eating habits. Unfortunately, the weight still sticks like glue... easy on, not so easy off.

Alisupport Hi, I'm Ali and I'm new, I am excited about Spark People and logged my food yesterday and again today, it's a little confusing for me using the food tracker, but I'm sure I'll figure it out. Is there any site anyone knows about that could help me better understand and figure out how to use the food tracker? I am also doing the Diabetic Challenge and the sleep group and the depression group and the heart health group. When I do something I do it all the way or not at all! I figure all these groups will work together and mesh to create a healthier me! Today, my starting weight is 231.6 and I want to get down to at least 180.
I am a 64 year old woman, happily married, with two, young adult daughters, one 22 and the other 26' and my husband will be 70 in September of this year and I will be 65 in June.
There, now you know much more about me, I would welcome any Spark Friends for any/all the groups I am a part of.
