What is something you like about your hair?


FOR ME.....It's the silver color and thickness.

If God gives us what he thinks we can handle, He must think I'm a BadAss.

Are you able to do some of your computer work standing up or sitting on a fitness ball?


FOR ME.... I don't do either. I prefer my comfortable computer chair.

Visited my Grandmas in Detroit area, like Vernor's ginger ale. Frostie's root beer. We didn't drink much pop at home. Mom made Kool-aid with sugar. Lucky our teeth didn't fall out.

How many times a day do you wash your hands during cold and flu season?

Every time I use the restroom.
No more than usual.
Anytime I'm going to eat something.
Constantly!

FOR ME....Every time I use the restroom and before I eat

What's the best way to enhance the flavor of healthy foods?

1. Adding ingredients like herbs, spices, soy sauce or salt.

2. Buying high-quality ingredients to being with (fresh, local, organic, etc.).

3.Using the best cooking method to lock flavor in the food (broiling, grilling, etc.).

4. Including some healthy fat to help carry the flavor.

5. Other (let us know your method!)


FOR ME...I would say I use all the above...but as little fat as possible.

If I received a re-gift and I was aware of that, then its open season to send it back out as a gift. I might just ask someone if they want it and not give it as a "gift" for an occasion.

That berry tea tip is a good one. I generally ignore it or drink water and take note of what I ate last. If it was too lean, I add a bit of healthy fat the next time I eat that meal and it solves the issue.

Early it was to eliminate use of meds to control high blood pressure. After 2 years of dieting, my weight loss success would have accomplished that. I then was diagnosed with diabetes. The weight loss helped my general health, but my diet needed to be changed again to speciifically impact my blood sugar. Lots of balls in the air now.

What made you lose weight for good this time?


A friend or family member expressed their concern for my health
I saw myself in the mirror/in a picture one day and it just hit me
My doctor advised me to lose weight for my health
I had an event I wanted to lose weight for
Losing weight made it easier for a sport I played
Other (Share it in the comments!)


FOR ME..... Looking in the mirror and seeing how my clothes fit. Very tight.


If God gives us what he thinks we can handle, He must think I'm a BadAss.

Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being excited about what could go right.

Your body can stand almost anything. It's your mind that you have to convince.

Pumpkin pie. We would always have one piece for dinner desser. There would usually be one piece left. No matter what time I rose the next morning, Dad would always get up first and eat the last piece of pumpkin pie.

I have tracked my food for several years. Portion control is a tool to be used. Some foods I have to be leary to have too much. Variety is the spice of life. You can eat almost everything. But, not a lot of it.

I lose weight when I count calories and exercise. I guess the answer is "Yes" because cutting portion sizes=less calories and for me no food is off limits.

Has anyone lost weight by watching your portion sizes/serving sizes and working out?


FOR ME....I think portion control is in the eyes of the beholder. Find out what your calorie range is for the day and stick to it. Exercising will also help in the weight loss program. I don't follow a "diet" because I know that doesn't work for me. When I started I committed to choosing to eat healthy most of the time. I did track my food and calories because I know for me calories matter. Really no food was off limits, although I also know that some foods need to be eaten w/care. And I also know that wine (which I like) can't be a regular part of my diet. Exercise is an important factor for me when losing weight. Calories In vs Calories Out.
