Oh girl! I know exactly how you feel!! PUT THE COOKIE DOWN!!! LOL

I am a dessert FIEND!! Luckily, I am able to curb down my desserts by having 2 pieces of Dove dark chocolate once a day and its just enough to give me what I need!

Its good that you have recognized that you arent eating as well as you would like as well as not exercising as much as you would like to! Thats the first step!! I suggest using something to help keep you modivated like Sparkpeople.com or MyFitnessPal ( I have the iPhone app)! Its really encouraging to see others who have met their goals and find new activities to do when you get bored! For me, when I start committing myself to working out, my healthy eating follows suit because I dont want to cancel out all the work I did that day! Get a calender and hang it where you can see it and mark off all the days that you work out so you can visually see and re-motivate yourself!!

You can do it!!!

Put the cookies down!

That being said, it’s okay to just have a few sometimes as a treat as long as a few doesn’t lead to the whole box.  Losing weight is tough, you don’t always see numbers on the sale.  That being said, you have a lot of time to lose the weight so don’t try and kill yourself to lose 10 pounds a month or something.  Just take it small step at a time and it will get better!

PS – That is why I don’t keep junkfood in the house, if it’s there, I will eat it.

best advice I have- stop buying cookies!! You’re a lot less likely to eat junk food if you have to go specifically to the store to buy it. Buy snacks like fruit, veggies, fat free yogurt, nuts, etc. and save the cookies for an occasional splurge, but don’t keep them in the house! Keep at it, you are on the right track. I lost 20 lbs, put back 10, and then another year went by, but now I’m down another 20 right at my goal weight. It’s not always easy, but its so worth it.
