Oh my God. It's so hard for me to eat healthy, even when I have healthy food right in front of me. I'll eat a breakfast like the one I had this morning, and then like, 4 seconds later I'll want more food, or worse, I'll want something sweet.

My parents conditioned my siblings and I to drink soda with every meal, and want dessert after, when we were kids. We weren't taught portion control or healthy eating habits. So now this is the only way I know how to eat. And I want to set a positive example for my kids. I can already see my 4-year-old acting the same way I did when I was her age, and that's probably why I was such a porky kid. I didn't know when to stop eating, and she acts the same way. She always asks for seconds, or a snack right after a meal. Sigh.

I have GOT to stay on track. No food after 10 (when I get off work). No JUNK. No McDonald's. PORTION control. It's a lot harder than it sounds. For me, anyway. And I have GOT to start drinking more water. It's crazy how little i drink on a daily basis...

Anyway. Must run. Have to get the Older Child out of the bath tub before she turns into a freaking mermaid.

Ciao, Bella <3

I am having the hardest time eating healthy too! I grew up on fast food, junk food, and anything processed! I never learned portion control or to like fruits and vegetables. During my childhood and teen years it wasn't an issue I was really skinny, but mid 20's hit and I couldn't eat all that junk without it going straight to my belly, butt and thighs. I am not a morning person and when I am stressed or running late I grab a soda and doritos for breakfast, yikes! I know it's terrible, but can't stop! Now 2 kids later I also want to set a good example for them. My 4 year old is a bit chunky and I want to get her eating better and active so she doesn't have to battle this her whole life. It sounds so easy to eat right and exercise more, but it is so hard! Best of luck to you!

Well those are habits and habits can be changed. You can learn to eat healthy and do portions. It just takes time. Make changes slowly. One week focus on more water. Then add in more fruit and veggies. Keep the foods that you really can't stop eating out of the house (red light foods). Look at reviews for a book on amazon called "Becks Diet Solution". It might help you. It's not a diet, but a book about how to change our habits and the way we think about food. Good luck!
