Don't Talk 2 Strangers? 10 Tips for Successful Weight Loss

Saturday, August 28, 2010

Happy Saturday Sparkfam! I had a wonderful Saturday shopping & running errands. I was getting out of my car when the Hostess Truck Driver nodded. I politely smiled & nodded back. I came back out of the store & put my bags in the car & seat belt on & prepared to leave the parking lot when he beckoned to me. I stopped & he asked if I wanted a treat? Well, see what happens when you talk to strangers? They try to give you treats. Well, I don't eat ding dongs or ho hos but I do like hostess twinkies. They are the better choice. I thanked him politely & got back in my car. See not all people that flag you down are trying to take advantage of you or was he? lol

Here are some tips I picked on the web. Everything that Spark has already drilled in us & we are getting it!

10 Strategies for permanent weight loss:

1. Exercise is essential for weight loss

2. Weight loss and weight training

3. Keep a diary for triggers that hinder weight loss - Leave those twinkies alone, huh. .lol

4. Stay focused on being healthy, not on becoming thin

5. Find out why you overeat

6. Weight loss support: join a weight management group

7. Weight loss and portion control

8: Lose weight slowly with small changes

9. Eating slowly can lead to weight loss

10. Weight loss through eating less fat - but do it wisely

    Good tips!! A weight management group would be great but participation would be a concern especially if you join a died group I have this week and had to leave emoticon No wolcomes are anything. Who wants it??? Your weakness is twinkies and red vines mine are chips and the cookies someone else brings in the house.

    More important is "DON'T TAKE CANDY FROM STRANGERS!" LOL I really think he took a look at your sparkin' bod and thought he'd distract you. Tell the truth did he ask for your "digits" as my daughter says. SMILE

I love your strategy points my number one that I'm intensely focused on right now is:

PROPER, ADEQUATE AND CONSISTENT EXERCISE!! TOO much and I don't want to exercise the next day -- not enough and well you know.
