As I get older I realize I have a lot more regrets than I should. My biggest one is that I did not stick with my weight loss plan. I want to lose that regret and be proud of myself again. So now I am going to GET WITH IT!

More About Me:
I would like to be more zen-like, but I do so enjoy a bit of sarcasim and a cynical sense of humor.

Borrowed this from another Sparker. What to do when faced with food temptations:

ask yourself: IS IT WORTH IT?

* Is it an occasion?
* How often do you eat this food? Can you get it any time?
* Does it look delicious and amazing?
* Do you have the calories to "spend" on it?
* Can you control how much of it you eat?
