  • Think
    before you eat it –
    cos
    if you don’t, you’ll be wearing it by next week.”

        Memorial
    Day signals the unofficial beginning of summer and you know what that
    means . . . parties, picnics, festivals, graduations, weddings, you
    name it – we celebrate with food and drink – and this time of
    year’s no exception.

        If
    you’re still struggling with your weight, and who isn’t, you’re
    gonna wanna stick to your diet as best you can this holiday weekend.
        And
    if you’re not struggling – you’re surely going to want to
    maintain what you’ve lost . . . right?
        I’m
    not telling you not to have fun, but fun doesn’t always have to
    revolve around eating yourself sick. Does it?
        Celebrate
    Memorial Day this year by eating healthier – stay away from all the
    white starch and sugar carbs that make you fat. You know the drill by
    now . . . cos if you don’t, visit my website and blog and read up.

        Politely
    pass on the potato salad and Aunt Billie’s baked beans. Skip the
    bread, buns, rolls and chips – you know, those sugar-spiking empty
    carbs we all love – but are so bad for us.

        Eat
    your main protein with a fork and knife, skipping the usual white stuff.  Instead,
    add in tons of green salad – saving your extra carb count for more
    important fare like all those unbelievably scrumptious,
    home-made-with-love, divinely decadent desserts!

        And
    beware of high glycemic fruits and veggies, while you’re at it.
    Watermelon, pineapple, potatoes, corn (yes, on the cob), and the
    like, cos they will sabotage your diet if you’re highly carb
    sensitive like I am, and struggle with your weight.
        “Eating
    healthy,” means a whole different thing to you and I than it does
    to someone on Weight Watchers or other diets.
        Be
    sure to get your butt up and move this Memorial Day weekend. Take
    extra walks with your family, friends and the dogs. Toss some
    horseshoes, beanbags and Bocce balls. Keep moving as much as you can.
        The
    more you move, the less you’ll overeat. Trust me.
        Learn
    from those who have gone before you and had terrific weight loss and
    wellness success: you have to be determined to stick to your new,
    healthy eating plan no matter what.
        Otherwise,
    you’ll quickly backslide, your weight will escalate, and the scale
    will reflect it – right on your face, belly, butt, hips and thighs
    . . .
        Aren’t
    you sick of living on this yo-yo yet?
        Eat
    and move like your life depends on it – cos it really does.
       Come next week, you’ll be glad you’re not wearing everything you ate over
    the weekend!
