Don't put things off!

Keep on tracking even if you are not having a good day or a ...

Life is a Highway

Always be willing to reassess where you are, where you want to go, and what you are doing to get there.

Some paths can be driven, some must be walked. Some are uphill. I eliminated all animal flesh and animal byproducts from my life more than 30 years ago, but this has never made me thin. I ...

Don't let blips cut you off

So many times in the past I have had a 'bad meal', and then written the whole day off, or even the whole week off, and then just given up on the diet completely. That has happened many times in the past.

If you relapse...

DO NOT resolve to start again tomorrow. Start with the very next meal (obviously that might mean tomorrow if you're a midnight binger but if your cheat was a scone at Starbucks at 10am, don't blow it again at lunch).

"Determined, Dedicated, Discipline" I already know what giving up feels like. I want to see what happens if I don't!

It is so important to remain focused. This is the most difficult thing to do for most of us. Create a way of eating that is healthy and assist you in meeting your fitness goals.
