............ I AM FOCUSED.......... On Good Health and Fitness

Some days on this path are harder than others. Still, I am determined to win. I no longer want my weight to dictate my comings and goings. I have so much to offer myself and the world. It's time to stop hiding behind the excess baggage.

"It won't be easy. Lots of people want to lose weight, but most aren't willing to pay the price or make the sacrifices to get there. You will not be successful with a half-hearted effort or by looking for shortcuts or the easy way out. ...

"It won't be easy. Lots of people want to lose weight, but most aren't willing to pay the price or make the sacrifices to get there. You will not be successful with a half-hearted effort or by looking for shortcuts or the easy way out. ~Jason Anderson (SP Trainer)

Be not afraid of going slowly; be afraid of standing still.
~Chinese Proverb

Fall seven times, get up eight.
~Japanese Proverb

Patience and perserverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.
~John Quincy Adams

PROGRESS.......not perfection!

I am discarding the excess weight totally and for good. I am focused on eating mindfully and exercising because it makes me feel good.

Every day is DAY 1.

I am building on the success of yesterday and feel empowered by the chance to do it better today.

Start your week with a little emoticon and make healthy choices!

I'm sharing some tips to help you have a fit and fabulous week!

**Eat smaller portions. Portion sized have creeped up considerably over the years. Research indicates a 33 percent increase in portion sized in the last 14 years. Super-sized meals at restaurants are not an accurate gauge of portion sizes. When in doubt, read the nutrition label on packages and use a scale at home for measuring foods.

**Serve from the stove. Measure out portions on dinner plates and then place on the table. Having plates and pans of food on the table may cause you to eat more because it's right in front of you. By keeping the food on the stove or the counter has it out of sight and out of mind!

Hope you are having a fantastic week and make sure you stay safe and healthy!
