The thing about getting off track you gotta go through the grumpy stage of kicking processed foods and sugar......
I've been doing it and sipping on smoothies making granola bars out of oatmeal bananas and raisins....
I forgot my children are eating the sugar and process foods either I had to distract my son who after his appointment wanted to stop for chips or fast food.....usually no big deal (unfortunately) I just happen to have 2 large red apples in my bag....I told him we were laying off the junk food and offered him one....with a serious attitude he said no thanks.....so I start eating my apple and offer him a bite....he agreed, "Mom do you have another apple" smiling on the inside I sure do help yourself....SMALL VICTORIES!!!! WE BOTH SURVIVED

    Good example! What I'm learning is that kids will eat whatever is available. If I have junk laying around, my daughter will eat it. If I have fruit, she'll eat that too. I am finding ways to get her on board with making better choices. emoticon

    Great job at setting a good example! It's tough sometimes but it is well worth it!

    I have been trying to keep fruit on hand here at the office and at home and I find I am eating more of them and less junk food. Seting the example is always a good way to go. Have a good afternoon.
