Sometimes it can be difficult to have motivation to stay honest to a diet, especially when you are making the change from double chocolate chip cookies to a rice cake and hummus. It can be too easy to live in the moment of how delicious those cookies look in the store instead of thinking how great you will feel when you pull up your jeans to realize they are too loose to wear.
It takes a lot of hard work and a whole lotta willpower to resist the cookie aisle.
It can be done though!
Fact is…you only have to do it once! Today, I am going to walk past the cookies aisle. Today, I am going to eat better foods.
Here’s another fact…I don’t eat rice cakes. Ewww.
Maybe you are among those who love them…if that’s the case, ENJOY!

But more importantly than size of clothing is how I feel now that I have energy, strength and flexibility.
About 4 years ago I made the decision to not be fat anymore. I had crept up to 175 lbs and a size 14. My life had taken a huge turn and there were things I wanted to do that would not work well with weighing 175 lbs. I made some necessary changes in my life, incorporating 7 habits that were the catalyst to where I am now – 35 lbs lighter, a size 2, so much stronger and feeling better than I could have ever hoped for.
