Is It Worth The Calories?


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

When I want a cookie, or ice cream or come other sweet that will knock me off track, I look at the nutritional info. Usually its something crazy high for such a small amount and I remind myself that for that many calories I could find something way healthier. If I REALLY must have it, then I work around it.

Don't beat yourself up if you can't resist, but the whole point is to think twice before you pop something in your mouth.

    It is so easy to overeat and not even realize the damage you have done. Reading those labels and making substitutions is such good strategy. Thank you for that inspiring post.

    I am worth it.

- I had a suprise yesterday. Thought Twizzlers were low calorie. Thank goodness for the Food Tracker. Now I know better. Was not worth it. I am worth more than that!
