I am determined to be as healthy as I can be at this stage of life. I want my clothes to fit better and put this weight behind me. l

    emoticon It can be challenging. Its like fighting an addiction if I know what that was like but for the most part it’s behind me. I use to bing eat them now I just fight the want. I give myself a taste now and then but I never feel the need to over do them anymore.

    It helps to keep suger out of your drinks. I drink water and unsweetened tea.
    I use to have a problem with chip but lately I’m not wanting them.

    So I guess all I can say is do your best not to eat them and it gets easier. Good luck emoticon
