A while ago, after reading an article on SP, I gave up going to the grocery store. I now get my local store to deliver groceries. It keeps me from impulse buying. I t also keeps me focused on getting healthy choices and not indulging in buying things I should not be eating. It is so worth it!

Blessings,

I became a pescatarian (no meat, just fish) almost 10 years ago. I do still eat limited dairy, like Greek yogurt and cheese. Getting enough protein is a challenge, but worth it!

Another thing I am trying...eating mostly plant-based. I gave up dairy in October & I feel so much better! I'll still have it from time to time, but not every day like before. Since I gave up dairy the arthritis & fibromyalgia pain I was having has nearly disappeared. I'm hoping that eating more plant-based foods will help even more.

Keep smiling!!

I am trying to plan ahead with my food so I do not get tempted into eating unhealthy choices.

I just need to stay away from chocolate candy, which is my weakness.

I try to keep only healthy choices in the house. Unfortunately during the holidays a lot of people gifted us sweets!

Unfortunately, what works for me is consistency, which is oh so hard. I have an illness that lays-me-flat for days and do you think I would lose a lb??? No. And getting back on track when you have no energy--and easy snacks are RIGHT THERE!! Difficult, but necessary.

Portion control is what I am focusing on first. I need to get back to weighing and measuring my food. Eyeballing is not working!

Blessings,
