I havenít posted here in quite a while. I've been a busy bee, though I've still maintained my healthy lifestyle during my absence. Conversations I have had with people often include asking me for tips as we move into spring. Iíve maintained my progress and I love helping others, as this helps to keep me motivated. So, the top tip I want to share is this. VISUALIZATION. Thatís very important.

When I say visualization, Iím talking about a lot of things. You need to visualize yourself at your ideal weight. Visualize yourself eating a healthy breakfast, lunch, and dinner everyday. Visualize yourself having at least 5 servings each of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains per day. Visualize yourself being more mobile and increasing your physical activity. Lastly, visualize that you are maintaining these things for the rest of your life.

Even if you donít really believe in your heart that you can achieve these things, you need to see yourself doing them. Donít worry about not believing in yourself. That's normal. But, for each little, teeny-tiny milestone you make, youíll feel a little bit more confident and over time, you'll begin to believe more in yourself. But it all starts with first visualizing it.

You need to see yourself all the time, the way you want to live, the way you want to be. Thatís the most expeditious way to achieve your goals.

    Visualization has been an integral part of my life for decades. It works, simple as that.
