If you keep exercising, you may even find you've lost a couple!

  • I disagree with the comment that some things are BAD for you but everything else is so true. Some things I have to avoid because my will power is not strong and I will eat too much, but portion control is is the most important thing! Thanks for the reminder!

  • That's a great tip... much better than setting out to be too ambitious and simply giving up! Lynnette - by FITFORFIFTY2013
  • Last year, I quit smoking in October and survived Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years with my weight fluctuated by 3-4 pounds! - by RANDI_D84
