Always remember..muscle weighs more than fat. You're toning don't you feel great!

Babe, you crack me up! Just remember you aren't in this alone.

I don't drink beer or smoke, but I am giving up a huge vice - chocolate. It is very difficult specially seeing I live with two huge chocoholics and need to make them baking. But I am surrounding myself with healthy snacks, like my own trail mix, California mandarin oranges (very sweet tasting), DH's gluten free Sweet potato quinoa cookies (made with agave syrup and dates instead of sugar. I flavour my water with orange and lemon slices (and as a treat Nestea individual ice teas for water bottles).

If we stick together we will win this!

well folks, i fell off the wagon big time, yesterday. chinese food, chocolate covered strawberries. then for dinner, an eight oz lobster tail dipped in melted butter. however the scale says no harm no foul. so i am back at it today. it was a wonderful mothers day though. my son gave me two tails for mother's day. my daughter brought the chinese and i made the berries. the strawberries were the best i have seen in many years. red and good even in the middle.

You didn't fall off the wagon. You had a cheat day

If you don't schedule the occasional cheat day, it's much harder to stick with a diet.
