    “Keys to success . . .
    Research your idea, Plan for success, Expect success, and just plain
    do it!
    It amazes me how many
    people skip the last step!
    Practice being a “doer”
    and success will follow
    you every step of the way!”
    Alfred A. Montapert
                Some of us live
    like every day is Fat Tuesday, and Boy, they don’t call it that for
    Mardi Gras is
    French for Fat Tuesday, which refers to the practice of the
    last night of eating richer, carb-ier, fatty foods before the ritual
    fasting (or giving up something in sacrifice like sweets or
    cigarettes) for the Lenten
    season, which begins on Ash Wednesday. And that’s next
    Wednesday, is it not?
                And to add
    insult to injury for us choco-holics, this year, Ash Wednesday falls
    on the day before Valentines Day!
    Every year at this time, I use Lent as
    a way to get a good grip on my sweet consumption.
    Once an addict,
    always an addict, I say. It’s all in how well you manage your
    Once again, I’ve decided to lighten
    the load a little and lose about 10 more pounds by my birthday June
    10th, so I’m making the bold statement of giving up ALL sweets from
    Ash Wednesday till Easter Sunday morning. This outta do the trick for
    me . . . we’ll see.
    How ‘bout you? What’re you giving up for Lent?
    You gotta have a
    plan and oftentimes people attempt to lose weight without a real one.
    Sure, they try to combine a healthy, effective, low carb eating
    strategy with daily cardio and they lose a few pounds, but get lax
    and lazy – and before they know it – they’ve packed all the
    weight they lost right back on.
    And sometimes even
    I had a plan right
    from the giddy-yup; experimented and improvised as I went along to
    find what worked for me – and what didn’t, and now I share my
    successful strategies with you.
    I’ve found that
    the “Keys” to true and everlasting weight loss success truly are
    to research your diet – find the one that works best for you. Low
    carb works like a charm for me as well as for many others who
    constantly struggle with their weight.
    Make your plan for
    success – write it all down every step of the way, every single
    day. Your weight, distance walked, even the foods you eat. Record it
    all in your fitness journal. Daily.
    Then you just
    plain gotta do it!
    No excuses.
    Stop wishing.
    Practice doing, and
    by all means, expect success – you deserve it.
    Try it and see . .
    . what have you got to lose but all your unhealthy, unwanted weight.
    Aren’t you worth
