LOL, don’t deny your self the greasy deliciousness of McDonalds! Are you crazy!? Life is not worth living without grease bucket food! (Checkers is my grease bucket choice for self indulgence).
Seriously though, I have been “Making Better Choices” as my therapist likes to say (kidding) and eating less, drinking water instead of coke, timing meals better, doing some meal replacement shakes for breakfast, etc. Have lost about 12 pounds in the last month or so. So whatever you are trying to do, keep it up and it will pay off.
