Extend The lIfe of Your Soap Bars

This will keep your soap bars lasting longer. Unwrap and place in the cabinet or in the open. When exposed to air the bars dry out & tend to harden a bit, you still have all the benefits, but less melting. I do this when I buy new bars and give them at least a 2 weeks. Your cabinet will smell nice!

Take picture of your scale weight each week and put picture on Facebook

Purchase a good scale that measures the same every time

I had a Tanita health scale with body fat %, water % etc The problem is it was never even close to my weight and never gave the same weight twice in a row. I bought a new flat scale with big digital numbers. The scale always gives same weight and it's easy to see.

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

This is not for the faint of heart. After years of saying I was going to lose weight, I made the ultimate commitment. I gathered extended family members (16) and asked them to shave off my hair. I'm not growing it back until I lose 40 lbs.

Favorite Breakfast

Breakfast is important and I love to eat it after my morning workout. I fix myself Cream of Rice cereal every day I work out because it is easy and fast.
The apple allows me to omit any sweetener but some may prefer to add it.
It cooks in the microwave and makes a large serving.

Wall Push Ups in the Bathroom COUNT!

This might sound weird, but it works! If you work in an office setting that has individual bathrooms, sneak in a few extra exercise minutes throughout the day. Every time I visit the powder room, I sneak in 30 wall pushups. Since I've increased my water intake, this often means 90-120 pushups/day!

Portion Control is Your Friend

I worked in restaurant industry for years. I have no idea what real portions are anymore because what we buy is often several 100% more than what a serving is. My lack of reality about portions leads me to eat much more than is typical and leads me to feel starved when I'm eating right.

I'm not exercising, I'm watching videos

I don't like to exercise and treadmill workouts are the very worst. Recently, I decided I wanted to watch the top 100 movies ever made according to American Film Institute. I got a netflix membership and several movies were sent to me. Now, my time on the treadmill is an investment in my future

healthy LIFEstyle journey mindset

Moving from weight loss to maintenance does not mean you are free to eat whatever you want whenever you want. It is helpful to have a "healthy lifestyle journey" mindset when losing weight so when you reach your goal you are ready to continue the lifestyle.
