The thing is to eat less and exercise more.
No matter how many commercials I see for miracle pills, plans, diets, cleansing plants, creams, rubs, etc.
It all comes back to eat less and exercise more. This is what is has always had to be.
Specific to this shrinking outing... my plan is to eat less cake. Must get the cake problem under control. But I'm not willing to live a cake-less existence forever, so I shall have to come to some sort of detante with the cake. I cannot let it win. I am not willing to let it go. We shall find some sort of accomodation eventually.
With a significant cake reduction and the continuation of my regular exercise plan as well as the Roller Derby, I will get to the goal.
