My stress is not over, next week will be a challenge as well, but I am so happy I have found this place and I am determined to learn how to lose weight and live a healthy lifestyle.

Who can say, what helps weight loss. I have tried every diet around. I have a very hard time talking about this subject, so for me I would have to say yes, it has given me insight into myself, it has made me think about what I am doing, and it has made me conscious of what I put in my mouth. I think about what is healthy now, not what I am craving. Today my husband and I had Salmon Burgers for lunch, I have never even thought of eating Salmon instead of beef. It was good, and the best part was it was healthy. I know that I will not change over night, I will still eat an unhealthy meal from time to time.
But..........everyday I will come here, and everyday I will face up to what I am doing about my the choices I have made. I hope that soon I will be in the group of people that can say I made it, now the real work begins. If blogging helps me to do this then I am so glad I found this. Tomorrow is weigh in day! Yea!!!!

One source of encouragement I have been drawing from is all of the people online that have made it over to the other side. I want to be there, and I someday will. I hope I can be an encouragement to someone on this journey I am traveling.
Three more sleeps until I weigh in. Yea! I am feeling good about it.

- Whatever is true
- Whatever is just
- Whatever is Pure
- Whatever is lovely
- Whatever is of good report
These are some others I must learn to live by
- Whatever there is to do, I can do it. (positive attitude)
- Whatever others are doing that is working (learn from them)
- Whatever encouragement I need should start with me. (keep talking, I will eventually listen)
- Whatever rewards that will come my way because of my new life habits. (like smaller clothes)
- Whatever I do, I must plan...( and count my points)

What I learned today!
The key to staying accountable is not only keeping track of everything you eat (the good AND the bad), but also posting daily (or at least regularly!!). So even though I may not be saying anything terribly interesting or even inspiring, I think I need to be writing.
I tried out a new Breakfast treat this afternoon if you want to try it out click on this- Banana Oatmeal Cups with Chocolate Cups. If you like Oatmeal you will like these, grab and go cups.
Ok, I better quit or I won't exercise.
