LOSE WEIGHT AND HAVE MORE FUN!
I told myself I was going to be “good.” I was not going
to have bread or dessert while eating out. But I arrived
starving and the bread basket was staring back at me. Before I knew it, my body was on auto pilot and I ended up eating the bread basket, my full entrée, and dessert! What is wrong with me? Argh! I was just so hungry and now
I’m mad at myself because I’m too full and ruined my diet.

Here are 9 simple steps you can use to not only avoid fat traps, but lose weight in the process!
