I know I must change my bad habits. I have gotten off track, and am having trouble getting back on.
I must get back on track because my health and my attitude depends on it.
I will succeed. I will push past my lack of willpower, and just do it. Even if it is just a little.
Excuses are just that. an excuse to not do something.
I must stop using excuses.

I don't really need that extra helping, my tastebuds are not going to go on strike if I stop after one helping. ( and my tummy will thank me later).

Being busy is an excuse.... 10 minutes before bed is not going to make that much difference in the morning. Unless I get better sleep because I actually took the time to get physically tired, and not just mentally tired.

I must do this because my life dpends on it. ( no I'm not gonna die if I don't, but who wants a life half lived because you are to tired to live it?)

    Cindy... the advice I always give to people is go back and re-read the fast break phase... it gets you thinking in the most basic of ways... go through the steps again.. it will only take you a few days, I predict. Start with the small things.. do you still track your food? if you haven't been start now... forget about feeling guilty, just track those extra helpings... seeing the details in black and white really helps to get back in line.

    Drink the water... can't do 8? do 4... then 5... you can do it...

    I really think it is all as simple as re-educating ourselves with the small things which are really big things because they are the foundation. when we slip, we are usually slipping in the mind/food connection. We are not conscious... we forget that every morsel we put in our mouths counts... and we start eating empty calories or we *spend* our calories unwisely... kind of like what my blog a few days ago said. A calorie is not a calorie... make every calorie a good one (with the exception of the controlled treats)...

    You can do it, you've done it before.. I know you started out on LA weight loss maybe you are struggling with what your day should consist of...

    you might want to go to the DASH diet website. It is to eliminate hypertension but I believe that it is a sound diet for anyone. This is what I try to follow...

    Just put your hat and coat on and head back out in the storm... you will make it!

    Hi Cindy.
    You can do this! You have been an awesome Lime Leader and a great inspiration to us. Maybe you need to lean on us some more. Would you like to do mini challenges? I do well when I am challenged. How about baby steps back to the frame of mind you want to be at, like one day at a time type of thing?

    If there is any way I can help, let me know. I am here for you if you need to lean, okay?
