I was browsing around and I came across an interesting article. I can't find it now, or I'd post it here… Anyway the article basically said to remember that we're human, allow ourselves to stumble once in a while, etc… It mentioned taking "baby steps." Pick one goal and add it to your regimen once a month… For instance, my goal is to eat more fresh fruits. So I decided to have fruit (15carbs only) with breakfast and as my afternoon snack. I honestly though fruit was "lost" to me, but I found a nice list of lower carb fruits that I like. So for this 4 weeks, I'm going to try to eat fruit twice a day, 5 days a week. I was very excited to read that article and to think about incorporating "baby-step goals" into my routine. The question for you is - what are some of your goals? What are some other terrific suggestions I should consider working into my routine?

I remember when I gave up smoking, I kept falling off the wagon, but I just started again the next day. and I was finally successful at it, I think the real secret about changing anything in life is to allow yourself mistakes, don't beat yourself up when you fall off, and to just get back up and start again. eventually you will get there. :) great subject.

When I embarked upon my new meal plan, I looked upon it as an experiment. That way it was not me who failed, instead it was the experiment which didn't work out for me, Just like Edison said when he was trying to invent the light bulb, we just know what doesn't work now. That viewpoint served me well over the years.
