I'm gearing up to loose those last 10-15 pounds...I fully expect to do it.

I will do it!

I've come to the conclusion the reason we fail at diets is because we truly will ourselves not to succeed.

Too many times I went on diets I knew I couldn't keep up forever. For one reason or another they didn't make sense. Like the Adkins type...I lost the weight, but I really love all foods...I felt deprived so much that I knew I'd never keep it up....and I didn't... gained 30 of the 50 pounds I'd lost back....quickly.

I expected to loose weight this time. I could eat all foods ...anything...just in moderation. Plus, my daughter Melissa had been successful using . If she could do it....I could do it!

It came down to I expected to lose the weight and keep it off forever.

So if you have tried many diets and failed at all of them like me....there is hope!

Put on those fancy jogging shoes...

get out there....

buy those fresh vegetables, fruits....

walk, walk, walk every chance you get.

Expect to change your life and

you will!!!

I am with you Maree!! I vow to stop being LAZY!!! HA! I even got up at 6:30 this morning to run; I HATE getting out of bed!!! I am on the dailyplate strong & will run beside you for those 10-15 pounds!

I always thought I was average sized, until I discovered (yesterday) that I was actually at the TOP of my range! The TOP! Which means I could lose 25 pounds and still be in my healthy range - YIKES!!!!!! So, yeah, I am sticking with this eating less, moving more!!!

Those rainbow Nike sneakers are a hoot!

I needed this post today. I was doing so good exercising and then a table fell on my foot. My foot was bruised and I wasn't able to walk for three weeks. I am having a hard time starting up again :( I have to wear a swimming suit next week and I am completely dreading it!
