Looking for a motivation partner or better a group of motivated girls to chat with daily. I tink it may be easier to tell someone how Im doing if I know they are doing it with me (from a far). Where is everyone from - Im in Ottawa, Canada.

--- From the states here, but living in Togo, Africa! I definitely understand the motivation by others in the same boat, even if you are far away!

Hello to you both Cermakovia and Frogmania. Africa, very cool indeed!!! Well, its a deal, let's be each others support partners.  It's Sunday today and by hubby brought home 2 big bags of chocolate bars on Friday night he got from a client as a gift. sheesh, some gift. so far I have eaten about 10 of them!!

I am very excited about this idea of helping each other stay motivated!!  I am from Pennsylvania (USA) but I live in Togo, West Africa!!  I am praying that each one of us find whatever we need to stay motivated and stick with it!  This year 2012 can be AWESOME!!  We just need to focus on the end product and take it one step at a time!  Katie252...we just had a group from the USA bring us several bags of chocolate (reeses peanut butter cups, Hershey's kisses, etc.)...which we do not have access to here in Africa...talk about hard to control!!!  Praying you start off good tomorrow!  I love Mondays...always a new beginning!!  To everyone on here...Start fresh tomorrow and stay focused!!!

---Re-gift!   lol, Have any new neighbours?  We just had a couple move in before Christmas and I took my extra Christmas cookies and candy over in a welcome platter. Otherwise I would have kept snacking.  If it's in the house I have no willpower, so everything is banished.  We never had goodies of any kind in the house until after my first pregnacy.  Since then we have had little things invade - halloween candy, christmas parade candy evil stuff!  LO one won't eat it so it just sits there screaming my name.

 I have lost 5 lbs in the last three weeks so willpower is kicking now as I do not want to undo any of my work!

Well my cousin had 2 children that are around that age and she packed on about 40 lbs, now I know how and exactly how easy it comes on. I was so proud that I lost 60 lbs about 6 yrs ago, and now feel like a big failure for giving up on things that meant so much i.e. healthy eating and excersice. Amazing how life changes, and if you dont hold true to what YOU want you will be taken for a ride.  I think as women were so occupied taking care of the cildren, the house, husband, making meals and working and we ultimately come last in our priority scale.

Welcome Gwen. That was my intent on starting this blog. We certainly all have the same goals here. Let's use that to our atvantage!

Happy Monday Morning Girls. Remember, fresh start today. NO JUNK FOOD TODAY. We can report back at the end of the day how everyone is doing. If anyone needs daytime help, Im logged on during the day. Feel free. I would say this is kind of like AA but for food and excersice.

Kate.
