I just reflagged a post that described me so much I can’t really deal. Like, there are times where all I want to do is restrict myself, and become super skinny super quickly. Then, my sensible side kicks in and I know I can’t. So clean eating, and getting fit is what I want. Then I throw that out…

Oh hai, this was ME (not the anon) but, me a while back in my life!  I made myself stick to 5 months of NO cheat days.  It was the only way I could get rid of the lack of self control.  I kept ONLY healthy foods in the house and NEVER went out to eat.  Once I got used to my new lifestyle, it was much easier to to contain myself when I reintroduced myself into the world of foods that aren’t all clean and healthy.  I had to train myself to forget about those unhealthy foods and get used to healthy foods as a way of life.

NOW that I have done that, I am able to have treats here and there without it just becoming an avalanche of terrible eating.

I just got a little “break” on the financial side of my life and consolidated some credit cards and loans. So hopefully within 3 years (or less) I will be out of debt! It’s not alot of debt, but when your only making minimum wage and then some it’s hard to dig your self out of even the most…

You can do it! We gave up credit cards 4 years ago and never looked back. We don’t even have an emergency card and it is the best thing we’ve ever done. The only debt we have now is our car payments and it is so wonderful! We still have not only what we need but pretty much everything thing we want as well. We take awesome vacations, we’re buying a new motorcycle this weekend etc etc. Letting go of credit will be one of the best things you have ever done. And, don’t believe any of the people who tell you otherwise. Every time I go into the bank, they offer me one and then act like I have gone completely insane when I tell them that we don’t believe in them and gave up on them years ago.

You got this!!

Thank you!
I do want to keep my emergency card but STRICTLY FOR REAL EMERGENCIES like my car breaks down (I need a car because I drive 80 miles a day to work and back) but only for those purposes and not because I just have to have another pair of nikes! ;)
But damn I hope I get to the point where you guys are! It would feel so good to have my debts payed off in full!!!

You’ll get there!! :-)

Can someone please explain why the serving size of hummus is TWO TABLESPOONS. WHAT AM I? AN ANT? 

This is why I make my own. I don’t put any oil in mine so I can splurge on portion size! Huzzah!
