Life is kinda like a mountain trail, you can look at it or you can hike it, either way it is up to you to make the choice.

Choosing a route, a routine, an eating program that will support a healthy life, but also an enjoyable one. A life with NO chocolate would not be great..so I will have some. A life without bread..one of my great weaknesses, would not be fun. .. so I will have some!
The bottom line is SOME..not ALL and within reason!

I believe after floating my boat thru several trials and errors in both eating programs and exercise insanities..that moderation is indeed the key. CI/CO...is still the best way to go! Thus said it is up to me to moderate what goes in and what effort goes out!

Success as they say rests in your hands. But you must follow the path to find it. So easy to fail...give up and just say..Thas how it is.

Not This Time..Not Me...This time I believe in ME..

    Tonight I decided to double up on the Purely Inspired Decadent Chocolate and omit the Barleans - they're both made with vegetable-greens and the Purely Inspired has more proteins.
    It tasted good emoticon and it's cheaper than the Barleans emoticon emoticon

    Thank you. I have virtually no family - so the holidays are not a temptation or threat to me and my program. However, I do know how hard it is to fall off the wagon. So I've resisted any and all temptations that do arise. Praise the Lord, I have not had many. Having to bake cheesecake was a worry for me.

    I had to make cheesecake for my sister to take to her daughter for Christmas and I "MUST" lick the bowl. To me, the cheesecake batter is even better than the cheesecake. So I scraped the bowl pretty darn clean this time and only consumed about a TBL at most - I think. My father taught me to always taste the batter for the taste of the cheesecake and my sister said the same thing. Taste, not eat, lol.

    I only have 1 sister living close to me and she's 30 miles away. I was so pleased with myself - it took me 7 months to go visit her - but I gave my visit to her as an early Christmas present to both of us. No panic attack! WooHoo!!

    I explained to her that I am so close to goal weight and just can't take a chance of blowing it now. Bless her heart, she fully understands and hasn't pressed me. She is larger than me and hasn't been able to get back on track since her 2nd knee surgery.

    Ok. Slim-Fast. First, I am using the Walmart Equate brand. Secondly, I found a better one at Sam's Club - more money but a lot more protein with less calories, fiber, sugar/carbs. It's called Premier High Protein Shakes and at Sam's it is $16.66 for a 12-pack of 11 oz bottles. With a Sam's Club membership, they ship it to me for free! After I finish my slim-fast, I will be using only the Premier for the triple protein with less fiber/sugar/calories. If you want to know more, please let me know. BTW, I intend to only use it when needed next year - for the occasional binge/gain.

    Love you lots,
