Life has a lot of lessons in it, & we learn something new each day. Some lessons are good & some can be bad. Listening to my daughter talk about the children she has to take care of & they are from birth to 3 & what parents are doing to them, I want to cry. Having children is an 18 year contract of teaching & caring for them. If you can't get up at night for feedings, changing diapers & all that goes into it, don't have them. Giving 3 month old children medicine to calm them is a crime.
Children are suppose to be able to grow & we are to protect them. Being a child has been taken from them & by 3 they are doing first grade work. Remember they are children & are suppose to get dirty, laugh, play and drive us crazy with Mommy & why. We must each protect the children the best we can.

We all want that perfect figure, but beating ourself up is no help. Try to lighten up a little. I take my new lifestyle very seriously but if I have something I shouldn't I just try to overcome it, move on and try to make better choices the next time.
The idea is learn from our mistakes and learn to make healthy choices we can live with not to feel deprived and hungry.
I don't control the unanticipated "everything elses", instead I have learned to live with them and whenever possible make them benefit me, myself and I!100
The only thing you need to do is take a few minutes to think before reacting to the unanticipated "everything elses". Have some phrases ready in your mind such as "no", "ridiculous", "I am truly amazed" , "get over it", "That's right on track", "go for it"!58
