Here are just a few things that will help you on your journey..............

Acknowledge to yourself what you need to change, then tell the world and be accountable. Make your food and exercise trackers public and use them. If you want it bad enough, you'll do the work. Act as if it is impossible to fail.

Donít do anything to loose weight that you are not willing and able to do for the rest of your life.

Set your environment up for success, don't allow constant temptations in your home or your car or your work environment. Keep the right kind of snack foods in your desk, locker, purse and glove box. Then you have no excuses for choosing something ďbadĒ.

Do get yourself some exercise equipment, but donít put it in the basement where it will end up as a laundry hanger or in the garage where it will gather dust. Set it up in the room you frequent most. Mine is in my living room. Yes, it gets raised eyebrows from visitors, but its there for me. Its IN MY FACE every day. And I use it. If I sit at the computer, a stability ball is my chair.

Eating clean and healthy food is an investment. Eat your veggies first. Its hard to fill up on junk when your belly is full of good food.

Donít do it alone. Find friends who have similar goals and some who have achieved what you want to achieve. Friends help. If you are struggling, be honest and call on a friend.

Don't concentrate on waiting for results. Concentrate on your program and the results will come. Focus on becoming healthier, then everything you do is progress, even when the scale won't cooperate.

Take photos of yourself with every 5 or 10 lb loss so you can see your progress. Keep a pair of ďfat pantsĒ so you can see how you are loosing. If you feel yourself about to give in to cravings, go put your bathing suit on or look at yourself naked. If you don't have a full length mirror get one. The mirror doesn't lie.

As soon as you achieve one goal, create another. Your ultimate goal should be made up of mini milestone goals along the way. Celebrate each milestone.

When you talk about your program, speak of lifestyle changes, not of a diet. You want to keep the weight off, right? Donít preach to others about what they are doing wrong for their health. Instead, be a role model. Your actions and results will speak louder than words. Least of all, donít judge your partner; no one likes a nag.

Don't sign up for too many teams. After a while you will find the ones that are best for you. Let the others go, or at least unsubscribe from their automatic emails. Too much time on the computer means not enough time being active.

Good Luck! I know you will succeed!

Congratulations on reaching the 3rd level! I know you can do it. Especially now that you're back "home" with your own fridge! emoticon
