Tuesday’s thought… If you’re trying to lose weight acknowledge that you don’t need to be perfect. Don’t let a slip cause you to fail. I focus on 90% healthy and allow myself 10% for times when I can't stick to the plan. Just remember food is just food, it won’t solve your problems. Annette :-) ... See MoreSee Less

Monday’s thought… A huge part of losing weight is making the decision to get started. Nothing will change unless you make some changes, so start by focussing on what you will do today and worry about tomorrow, tomorrow. Day by day, bit by bit you will get there. Start today - you can do it! Annette :-) ... See MoreSee Less

Have a great weekend. Annette :-)
