If I remember right you have a little one. We loved to dance to music. We still clean (with some dancing) to music.

I have been working to eliminate the junk food. First thing is to keep my husband out of the store as much as possible. I try not to buy any junk food I might eat.

I always drink water before I eat anything. I make it a rule never to eat if I am thirsty.

If I bought it for the kids then I don't eat it. (OK that is the goal.) They don't need it.

I procrastinate eating it. That gets me by for a while on bad days.

I sometimes make myself something like a really good salad. Then I am too full for the junk.

Hope this helps.

Tracking really helps. I find that the more processed a food is ("junk food" tends to have a lot of extra chemicals in it and not as much fiber, vitamins, minerals, protein, etc) the more it tends to make you hold onto water and weight.

Get back on track and eat healthy but also get more active. Think of ways to make activity part of your educational day and part of your own life. If your hubby runs in the morning, take a walk after dinner.

Make a goal to get your veggies and fruits in every day as well as healthy grains (the whole grain products are often better for you) and you will feel better. Drink water and make sure you spread it out through the day.

But being more active helps you "situate" things better and get toned and stronger which is part of being healthier.

I have not written a blog for a while, so I thought I would sit down and do one today. last sunday I jumped on the scale and it said 182.4 I was so excited. Monday it said 184 tues it said 185.. ugh I was upset. I thought ok I am eating a little junk here and there. and I have been but counting the calories. I thought ok is the fat in the junk food jumping to the scale along with my rear end. fat is fat.
so I thought it has been three weeks since I started and three weeks since I measured myself. so I thought I feel smaller my pants are lose. So I get the tap measure out an sure enough three inch off my waist and two off my rear end.
anyway that helped me not to get to discouraged.. and lifted my spirits to try harder to stay on track.
my husband is the junk food king. the only reason he is not over weight is cause he runs 10 miles a week three or four times a week. plus has a very physically active job. he used to weigh 290. and is down to about the right weight.. me I do not have the time to run 10 miles nor do I have that time of job as I am a stay at home mom.
so I have to make up my mind look better and feel better and be healthier I have to stay away from the junk.. it is so hard but I can do this.
today I weight 182 so go figure...
question what do you do to avoid all the junk that is in you house???
