Secrets of Success





Never deprive yourself of something you really want. If you keep denying yourself foods that you love, it will haunt you. Then you'll end up eating a whole package of Oreos instead of just one! Remember that there are no forbidden foods and everything is okay in moderation!

  • I don't like this secret, I LOVE this secret! It is so true for me at least. When I was on weight watchers I told myself no candy and my body wanted it so bad that I ate peanut m&m's for 3 months straight. I eat them maybe once a year if that now. I have decided there is no food off limits including cheesecake. I will have anything I want in moderation or pay the price later. Thanks so much! - by PRINCESSBAEZA
  • So true! If I deprive myself of a food, I end up obsessing over it and overeating. Better a little taste of a snack than a big binge.
