For the last few years I've been progressively gaining weight. As the scale moved upward, I cut back on my eating habits. Before joining SP I had cut back to eating only one meal a day - lunch - with no other snacks or bad habits -- and I was still gaining! Now that I'm active in this plan the pounds are coming off and I'm feeling so much better. Part of the secret -- coming out of starvation mode!
Enough said above -- moral to the story is keep eating evenly throughout the day and it's much more effective than simply cutting back on calories. I'm living proof!

I have to remember, no matter what, that I'm the parent. When my kids complain about a healthy meal, I remind them that this is what we're having and if you don't like it, you can not eat. This way, I don't feel like I'm running a restaurant and I'm being a good parent by feeding them healthy food!
Now is the time I must put my big girl undies on and just do this. I can't act like a kid who wants every poor food choice out there. That attitude will not get me to a healthier place. I'm not a kid. I'm a grown up who has all the information and tools I need to make this happen. It's time I start acting like it.
Eating 5-6 meals a day; getting adequate sleep, eating veggies and fruits daily and healthy food choices at every meal and snack, working out 4-6 days a week, staying organize, shopping adequately, journaling, let others know what I working towards and staying busy on SparkPeople!
