6:45am 2/26/12

As a snack last night I had a sugar free jello cup with a squirt of whipped topping.0 pts. Also I did not eat anything in the middle of the night.

2 eggs. 4pts.
4 strips bacon 2 pts.
2 tst sm amt butter spread 4 pts.
Mixed fresh fruit.0 pts.
1/2 cup Greek yougart.2 pts

on the weekends I tend to eat less dairy, I am not a milk drinker. So this morning I bulked up my breakfast with some yougart.

This morning I returned to a book that in the past has been very inspirational on leading me on my weight loss journey. And I highly reccomend it."A Course in Weight Loss-21 Spiritual Lessons For Surrendering Your Weight Forever" by Marianne Williamson

Her premises is that poor diet and lack of excercise are not the cause of your obesity the cause is your mind. Fear, loneliness and isolation feed our need to overeat. All the negative messages we feed ourselves feeds these maladaptive behaviors, love can break down these walls.

I have spent many hours and dollers searching the isles of Barnes and Nobles looking for that magic pill that will lead me to weight loss. I don't need to tell you there isn't one but this book gives me hope and inspiration.

If anyone has read this book I would love to know what you think.

Thanks for stopping by!
