    Sooo freakin' true!! Great visual... thanks for the one thing I needed to hear to get me back flyin' in the right direction again... :-)

    Absolutely true... that is the difference for me between all the other times I've tried to lose weight and "this time." If I overindulge, oh well, I'm human, I continue as normal. Before I would have gone on a prolonged binge if I ate just one little thing that wasn't on my plan.

    This weekend I slipped up BIG TIME!! But after encouraging words from my mom and my husband, I said I will not give up and will try again. That's what it takes sometime.

    Love the positive attitude!

    I try to keep this in mind if I slip up.. even if it's a week or a month of slips... Staying positive is the only way to stay on track! Day by day... moment by moment...And it never hurts to restart.. only hurts if we stop trying! thanks! emoticon
