Raiding wardrobe for clothes that fit :-(

Weight Loss Inspiration Bracelet

I put together a weight loss inspiration bracelet from items I purchased at the flea market. For a few dollars I have an item I can wear and keep with me always to remind me to BELIEVE in myself and BELIEVE I can do anything I put my mind to.
My bracelet is made from a second hand sterling chain bracelet with toggle clasp and a "BELIEVE" circle charm. If you would like to see I have loaded a photo into my Spark page photos.
It was very easy to put together with 2 pairs of needle nose pliers.

Thinking away emoyional eating binge...

I am an emotional eater. I'm discovering that when I have an immediate urge to eat junk food or sweets..not out of hunger but emotional driven desire to stuff my emotions down...if I take a moment and ask myself why....and ask myself what is bothering me...then I think about my goals...the want to grab junk food is gone in a few minutes....I can think myself out of an eating binge. Sometimes I have to think my way out two or three times a day but each time it gets easier to not cross that line.

Do weekly weigh-ins and drink water

Viewing the weight scale daily is a no-no for me, because over a weeks' time, it will vary. What's important is the difference the week does for you. Also, I always drink 64 oz. of water daily. This fills the tummy, and it's also healthy for your cells and blood to keep everything in sync and work properly.. emoticon

Weigh and Measure!

I think one of the more important things that really helped me that doesn't seem to get a lot of attention in articles here is a simple food scale. So many foods are hard to measure without one! Grapes, watermelon, meats, and a lot of other fresh foods, which is the kind of food you WANT, all become very easy to track. It's a great tool :) On a side note, measure all other foods, as well. Like use measuring cups and measuring spoons when required. Make it a habit.

My little secret

I am "secretly" attending weight watchers meetings to lose weight. This way I can eat what I want, still lose, and nobody is looking at me saying "I thought you were on a diet". It's not a diet, it's a life style change, and since nobody knows I don't have to worry about negative comments when I do eat, or mess up! emoticon

Brush Your Teeth Instead of Eating

When I have a craving that comes at a time when I shouldn't eat, I brush my teeth. I think it's just a fact that no one wants to turn around and eat after brushing teeth, and it's great for your teeth. You can still brush your teeth if you're at work or out somewhere. And it doesn't have to be very involved, just a quick brush does the trick. emoticon
