I have found since I have been conscious of all things "going in my mouth", that calories add up fast and the world is ready to shovel them in with both hands! The very first day my sister and I were venturing out on this new calorie/carb counting adventure, we were asked to try samples by 3 people at the grocery store THAT DAY! At work one morning, I had the opportunity to munch on a bagel and a brownie all before 8 o'clock in the morning! Before, I would have had both and thought nothing of it...hence the need for a new lifestyle!
Choices, choices, choices...thats what its all about!
