We are in this together, here for each other and here to support, give tips, ideas and comfort........
NOW! For a little bit of insight into THINGS!
MY point of view.
Some of you have been a little down and out.
tell yourselves this:
Health is our goal weight loss is our gift.
You don't HAVE to follow the SBD to a tee. If it isn't working for you yet, or you are faltering, try some of these helpful hints:
Throw out the word diet and replace it with health. You aren't on a diet, you are eating healthy and making healthy decisions.
You choose NOT to eat something.
You are in control.
You can eat less, use smaller portions and learn to leave at least one bite on your plate.
You can say NO.
You can have things, just use the 3 bite rule.
You can become a lable reader.
You can plan ahead, keep a food/feeling journal.
You can eat 3 meals a day and 2 snacks.
You can do this for yourself.
You can motivate yourself. How? Make a goal giver. What do you want by the time you lose 10 pounds? Reward yourself.
Remember the 3-4 gm of sugar rule.
Try and NOT be consumed by the Metal Monster.
Weigh only one day per week at the same time, same EVERYTHING.
You can see the #, write it down, and move on.
I think THE most important thing is to go for this with an attitude of health. Eating right and if the SBD doesn't "allow" you what you want, alter it. No one ever said you can't
Use YOUR best judgement.
You have to do what will keep you on track, happy and right with your own eating plan.
There is always help here for you.
No one will judge what you do.
This is a new experience, a new way of life and a new way of eating.
Make the most of it.
Take what you like and leave the rest.
Be happy, be creative, and make this what you want. Whether it be following the SBD or a modified version.
The goal is to eat better and to be fit.
You have to be happy with yourself and your decisions. Don't let others tell you what and how to do something.
Read, read and then put into action what you read.
I won 3 games yesterday at cards
My mom especially and the other 3 ladies LOVED the Pistachio Chicken Salad. It was a big hit and they asked for the Avocado dressing recipe as well.
Such a happy camper I am.
All for One and One for ALL is a great way to think.
Have a grand day at the Beach or by the Beach.
The choice is YOURS.
