Say No, Then Negotiate.

Rave: I have lost 40 pounds since November 1st! “What is your secret?” I get that a lot! There is no secret! I just started eating better. I cut out sugar, starches and enriched flour. I eat more often and I drink lots of water. I eat 4-5 meals/snacks a day. I do some exercise and try to get at least 8 hours sleep each night. I find that makes a difference. Im not on any celebrity trainer plan but if you wondered if any of them were inspiration, it would have to be Chris Powell and Bob Harper.

Rave: I decided a week ago that I did not need to smoke anymore. I have quit in the past and always gone back. I feel like I need to figure out how to cope better. Im not sure what the answers are yet, but Im taking it one day at a time. Im sure I will find success in this. My health is my focus right now and that is how it should be! The grandchildren are great motivators towards wanting to live a healthier life!
