Over the past several years I have been slowly reducing the amount of 'things' in my house. I found they were taking over my life between managing them, dusting them, cleaning around them, etc. I began looking at each 'thing' and asked myself two questions: "Does this have true sentimental value to me?" and "Have I used it in the past year?" If the answer to these was No, then I either sold it or donated it to charity. It's very freeing not to have so many 'things' around. Try it!

For years after the birth of my son I tried to lose the weight. At 1 point I weighed more than my in pregnancy. I would loose and slowly gain again. Finally I said "no more" and looked to others for help. I talked with a trainer a few times to learn how to exercise correctly, talked with a Nutritionist for tips and figuring out how many calories I needed to work with. Finally I had my husband look at my food logs for support as well as criticism. Sometimes a little help goes a long way.
3 years later I am still 1-2 pounds less than my goal.
Every year I use to say " I am going to lose weight." I would try and lose maybe 10 lbs. I would regain and would have to start over. I stopped myself dead in the tracks one day and told myself " You have not achieved your goal and year after year you do the same thing. The years pass and you still look the same. TIME WAITS FOR NO MAN! Get ON AND STAY ON. YOU WILL THEN SEE CHANGE!Losing another year without change is not I want,leaving unwanted pounds in the old year sounds better to ME.
a little exercise, meal change a day goes a long way. I AM NOT KIDDING!! IT HAPPENED TO ME.
