I've had some weight loss success over the years but I have not been very good at keeping the weight off. That is the difference between going on a diet vs. committing to a lifestyle change. I know that although satisfying for a short time, junk food and unhealthy eating are not my friends. After I give in to temptations and cravings, I always find myself asking why but I still allow it to happen again and again.

At least I am not giving up but I know I can do a lot better. My goal is to learn to make better choices, learn to control my eating and to follow a path to a healthier lifestyle.

My Goals:
- Maintain a consistent exercise program. Even if the time is brief, do something!

- Learn to make better choices for meals and snacks.

- Avoid binge eating. No reason to dip my hands into a bag of cookies or candy and keep eating one after the
other, after the other, after the other... Learn that I can be satisfied eating just one or two.

- If I go off track just forget about it! Don't use it as an excuse to have a food orgy for the rest of the day, week
or month. That doesn't make any sense.

" Choice by choice is how I've lost my weight. I don't wait until tomorrow any longer. If you get a flat tire, as I
say, you don't go around in a frenzy popping the other three tires. You put on a spare and get back on the
road asap."
