    7/23/2014 12:41:53 AM, by ~KINDREDSPIRIT~

    I have been down this road before so I am familiar with the lesson. Weight Watcher teaches this lesson v. well. I went ahead and guessed what a cup of cheerios is like.

  • Day 18 - retrain eating habits

    7/22/2014 11:21:49 AM, by ~KINDREDSPIRIT~

    The idea of throwing food away is a mixed bag for me. I have no problems throwing food away, ‘unless’ it’s a matter of leftovers. THAT I find hard. Due to this economy and my money situation, I think it is smart to use leftovers as another meal. So many times, I just ate out and the word ‘leftovers’... Read more

    It was probably in the 1960s. We saw a TV commercial for chocolates. "You deserve...." "Reward yourself with....." My father said those lines were silly.
