Salad

Changing your diet and losing weight can be a tricky process that requires some significant changes and patience. It is easy for dietitians and experts to tell us to eat a better diet and exercise more, but there are so many different ideas on what a healthy diet for weight loss really is that we end up confusing ourselves with latest tricks and fads and arguing over the best advice to take.

Celebrate in a festive style by experimenting  with fun Mexican recipes, use a Margarita machine,  and don’t forget the decor.

Now try to do that while not losing your temper, keeping a soft tone of voice at all times and not feeling like ripping your head out. Yeah, it’s tough if not impossible.

Then years later I remarried and became the stay-at-home married mom who was learning how to cook and clean.
