Night and Day

emoticon Remember, to lay things to rest at night--not just yourself, physically; but lay to rest those things of stress, strain, and temporary failure. In the morning, just as your body is refreshed; so should your life. Start anew, and plan a new day--a new life.

Don't open the Cupboard or Refrigerator

Don't open the Cupboard or Refrigerator until you've decided what you want. i.e. plan your snack before you look at the selections.
Then, your snack won't become a graze! emoticon

Know what's motivating you

After the initial excitement wears off, the commitment kicks in. To stay the course, you have to know WHY you want to lose weight. Is to go off meds? Wear "skinny" jeans? Play with your kids? Whatever your reason, make it YOUR own. Write it down and put it somewhere you can see it.

Baking

I love to bake and I substitute everything I can and still have great taste. I will use egg whites for most of the eggs, applesauce for 1/2 the oil and splenda for 1/2 of the sugar. I also use mini chocolate chips and use less.
