Some people have asked me how I started my weight loss. My first few months in the blog archive explain it all.

A Plan

My hubby told me that to make an airplane lighter and more fuel efficient engineers find small ways to make ordinary things lighter, arm rests, seats, dinner carts are all analyzed to see how they can shave off excess weight.

In order to make myself lighter I am going to analyze and shave off excess.

Today it will be Hot Chocolate with torianni syrup (peppermint or almond). I have been using that every day as a way to stay away from chocolate bars. Lately I have been making my cups fuller and have been indulging more often. Today I am going to buy sugar free hot chocolate and some no calorie sweetener.

That should be simple. Tomorrow I will tackle the graham crackers I dunk inside the hot chocolate.

Baby steps.

Alma 37: 6
6 Now ye may suppose that this is foolishness in me; but behold I say unto you, that by small and simple things are great things brought to pass; and small means in many instances doth confound the wise.

This is a good idea. Small things are often easier to accomplish and not so daunting, especially taken one at a time...

8 pounds or not, you still look great. I was just thinking that on Sunday. :) I'm sure you'll feel better once those 8 pounds are gone, and they will be. Good luck and I hope that sugar free hot chocolate helps. I love those chocolate covered altoids for the chocolate cravings. I think 2 are 15 calories and they are yummy.

It wasn't until after I read your blog that I realized I need to rely on the Lord to help me lose my weight. That is my challenge in life and he knows it and he cares. Thanks for the reminder.
