Learning from others!

I've decided that one of the things I'm going to do, this time around, is read about other people's  weight loss journey's (and their success!) And I want to LEARN from them. I do that while reading blogs and books
I had heard about Chantel Hobbs on Focus on the Family about a year and a half ago. Though it's pretty difficult to get English books here, I was able to order her book "Never say Diet". One thing that popped out at me today was this:
     "Don't depend on a diet program to change you. You are the only one who can make the necessary decisions and then follow through to change your life."

1. Make decision --check
2. Follow through -- in the process
3 Change life -- in the process

I've been weighing myself every second day or so, and I've been  not so happy with the results this past week and a half! BUT... I know I am eating healthier, I'm not snacking between meals, I've pretty much cut out the unhealthy junk food, and I am exercising.
I can't not be losing!
I'm not checking the scale til weigh in day!
I promise!

  2. thanks for the follow =). Well, according to Chantel Hobbs I´m screwed... I´m DIET chic. hehehe, no but really I hear you - this is totally true and I´m working on it.

    Maybe it´s my computer but it wouldn´t let me follow you? I´ll def. check back on you.
