I am trying to use what worked before and what didn't as guidelines for this plan. I know that tracking definitely makes a difference. So that is on my to-do list. Also planning makes a very big difference. Or at least planning to have foods prepared that I can grab when in a rush or hungry. That includes both for snacks and meals. I often come up short on protein. so I need to make more of an effort to have protein handy. Also I have been lax with portion size and getting seconds. I need to pay more attention to portions and eliminate seconds, unless it is veggies. I find that I stay full longer and tend to lose when I have at least two veggies with lunch and supper.
I was doing well with exercise for awhile. And yes, it really did make a difference. Both in weight loss and my energy level. So obviously I need to pay attention to that and get back on track.
So I will:
1. have foods that I need to eat to be successful on hand and prepared, if necessary.
2. track, track, track!
3. use those exercise dvds and printouts that I have. Or walk. Just move!
4. post, blog, and interact with other team mates. Makes me realize I am one among many. And also hear how they deal with situations. And maybe even offer advise if I have been successful.
