They also went on to say that Doctors should NO longer encourage patients to perform self breast exams. Hmmmm.... you can read about this HERE

Onions and Chocolate..

So I had a Teachable moment last night for myself.. When trying to justify eating ice cream.. I grabbed a small clear measuring cup.. Scooped myself a "healthy" portion, stuffing it into the measuring cup. A few minutes later I sat comfortably on the couch..and took my first bite.. "Hmm.. something just isn't right.. " so a few more bites..and I realized.. The chocolate ice cream tasted like Onions!!!!!

So lesson for the week!!! Don't use measuring cups for sneaking scoops of ice cream!!! BLEH!!!!

A little about me...

It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
