14 Things that Could be Interferring with Your Success!

free-wallpaper-11Here’s the deal around successful dieting – you either want to lose weight or you don’t. This is not complicated. If you keep making excuses, why are you bothering to even be on diet?

Sigh – if my mother could see me now. These days, I chew gum with the best of them.

Okay – I’ll back up and explain why a woman of my venerable years would take up gum chewing: It’s a way for me to deal with food grazing. Simply stated: It’s a lot more difficult to scoff up a broken cookie if you have to take gum out of your mouth to eat it.
