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!

successful strategies with you.
I’ve found that
the “Keys” to true and everlasting weight loss success truly are

success – write it all down every step of the way, every single

Practice doing, and
by all means, expect success – you deserve it.
Try it and see . .
