  • Good advice, I will try this. emoticon emoticon - by MIZPAM25
    Good idea. However, I'm finding that my spouse, who is a skinny guy and has no clue what it's like to struggle with weight, is a demotivator for me. I'm within 5 lbs. of getting to my goal weight. I would love to remove all temptations from the house, particularly the chips and chocolate! Any hints on how to deal with the situation?!!! I've been good about ignoring them, but continue to feel tempted. emoticon - by CINDYBOWMAN91
  • You almost have to! When you first start a healthy lifestyle or (EW.. diet) you almost always follow it to a T... then you get comfy and derail... take yourself back to day one! - by NIKKI2439
  • I totally agree, I'm doing the same thing! emoticon - by RACRAY
