I just finished Panera for the second time this week, and I ordered the same thing: Frontega Chicken Panini and the Broccoli Cheddar Soup.. I'm so full right now, but so happy too cuz it was delicious. I don't have time to do lunchtime walk, but I promise promise promise I will do at least 3 miles tonight. I also promise to not over-indulge for dinner this evening. I'm not sure what we're having but I'm going to go light.

A couple reminders for myself or anyone:

• Hunger comes and goes. Just because you feel hungry one minute doesn't mean you'll still feel it 20 minutes later.

• This is not a diet. It is a lifestyle change.

• Just because I mess up one day or part of a day, doesn't mean I'm back to my old habits. It is a learning experience.

• Motivation is the key to success. Think positive and don't lose sight of the goal in your head.

• I hate being fat!!

• I want to look good in my clothes. I want the clothes to actually hang properly off my body. (Alisha, you know what I'm talking about! lol)

• Exercise is the most important thing. Even if I eat healthy all day, it is not going to do me good for long if I don't stay physically active.

• Eat to live, not live to eat.

• Relax, and eat your meals leisurely. It's not a food tri-athalon. Chew at least 20-30 times before swallowing.

Yes! I do also. I think I might make a collage of reminders and motivations and hang them somewhere on my wall. I'm thinking on my door or my bathroom. Hmmmm.
