Have you ever driven by a beautiful flower garden and thought, “Oh, I really need a garden like that!” It’s a great thought until you see the person working in their garden every day, planting, watering, weeding, watering, and dead-heading, all while sweating in the summer sun. That garden took a lot of planning and constant work.
I know some people (I won’t name any names) who say, “I really need to lose some weight!” I always tell that person, it takes more than wishing!!! It takes a plan! Not many things happen by accident. I don't know about you, but, I have never lost weight accidentally!
Anything important that we do takes careful thought and planning! That includes claiming a healthy body and lifestyle.

What is your goal? Do you want to lose weight, be stronger, have more stamina, run a 5K? Whatever your goal is, you need a plan.
The author of Made to Crave adopted a healthy diet with a good balance of protein, carbohydrates and fresh fruits and vegetables. I follow the Weight Watchers meal plan. Both of our plans emphasize the importance of fresh fruits and vegetables.
I don’t think anyone has gained tons of weight eating fruits and vegetables. I don’t mean fruit salad with sugar and whipped cream, or green beans cooked down to black strings with salt and pork (Again…I’m not mentioning any names!!!)
After a while, I promise you won’t crave the bad stuff. Lynn, the author, says the healthier foods you eat, the more you crave them. I also allow myself one day to eat “bad”. I don’t count that as cheating because I don’t use all of my flex and exercise points in WW. I can tell you more about that if you want. That works for me, you just need to find the plan that works for you!!!!
You’re worth it!!!!!
