Sometimes it is really hard to get back on track. I set a goal to lose two pounds in October and two pounds in November. I planned to lose, but I gained about half a pound. Instead of giving up, like I would have in the past, I just kept trying. I just had a nice loss, or as some of my good SparkFriends call it, a release of weight this month.
I've said it before, but I do think "just keep trying," "do the best you can do each day," and "never give up" are the best secrets of my success!

I don't always want to make good food choices or exercise so it helps have to have someone to share my day with...the good and the bad. Someone who knows my dreams and goals and celebrates all my successes with great joy. A cheerleader. My daughter is my cheerleader. She is always up for a walk or activity and encourages me to reach my goals. My grandsons are also fantastic cheerleaders and excited to walk to the park or go for a bike ride. Hip Hip Hooray for CHEERLEADERS!
I keep a sunhat and sunglasses in my car along with my walking sticks...I try to be prepared.
On Sunday, I try to remember to boil two or three eggs. When my Daily Report shows that I need more protein, I reach for a hard boiled egg. I slice it into several slices (on a plate) and add about a Tablespoon of salsa verde (green salsa). YUM ! and it makes you want to drink another glass of water.4
I try to keep Herdez Salsa Verde on hand at all times.
