I am so PROUD of you for not giving up on yourself and wanting to change from poor eating habits to living a healthier lifestyle!! YOU ARE A WINNER!! I'm hoping the following may help you begin with your journey towards weight loss goals.
THROW OUT by GIVING TO THE NEAREST FOOD PANTRY in your area, all the junk food and unhealthy beverages that are in your cabinets and refrigerator. Not only are they sabotaging your will power, the Food Pantry will be grateful for your generous donation. If it's not in your home, it's impossible to be eaten!
Start a NEW GROCERY LIST! REPLACE with healthy foods, snacks, water and beverages. (Check to see if your doctor has a printout of your recommended daily diet or have him/her refer you to a nutritionist).
Use the SparkPoints tracking your daily nutrition (meals, drinks and snacks), by journaling everything that goes into your mouth. Don't go over your daily calories, carbs, fat and protein ranges.
Use the SparkPoints for tracking both of your daily fitness programs (your doctor's recommended exercise and cardio). Burn more calories than what you eat, but it is important to stay within your calorie ranges.
You're never alone in this journey of healthy living. You are among an SP friend. Visit my SparkPage, anytime. I offer lots of moral support, encouragement and positive buddy system. I am right by your side, walking along with you towards your weight loss goals!
Sending "I HAVE CONFIDENCE IN YOU" that "YOU WILL SUCCEED IN ALL OF YOUR GOALS" hugs from Missouri!
