Wonderful thought for the day:

Develop good habits, for when the motivation weakens.

I'm The KitchenBabe, and everyone loves what I cook. But I've decided to try and revamp my creations so they are healthier, but just as delicious. I'm excited to try it!

I am tired of being overweight. This year is all about making myself healthier than I have been in a long time, and I'm excited to try that, too!

I have a lot of other things going on in my life besides cooking, of course. I'm a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend. I am a poet and I am a writer. I am constantly trying to learn new things (just now it's watercolor painting, and Italian.) I am completely hopelessly shamelessly addicted to books.

I have plenty of struggles but I try to stay as upbeat as I can, and helping *you* is good for me. Because if I help *you* I don't have time to think about how *I* hurt. Know what I mean?

By the way, if you want to be my buddy, just ask :)

Goals, goals, goals....How long will it take? As long as it takes!

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
I weigh every day, first thing in the morning. I know there will be fluctuations, but I seem to be stupid about it sometimes....several good days of loss, like this past week, and it's too easy to tell yourself you can have *this* or *that* when you shouldn't. It keeps me totally accountable, and the more days I see drops the more I want them!

what is your goal weight, 5'3 and 5'4 ladies?
I'm 5'3 and I am the heaviest I've ever been-248.8. My goal weight is 125. I just restarted my diet and wrote a very long journal entry about why that was necessary. I can do this!

spot the bad food
Really? Because it does work for me, in a way no other diet ever has. Weight loss is steady, I feel solid, not shaky, I am not hungry or feeling out of control with carb cravings.
