Every loss matters!!!

1/4 a pound loss after working hard all week does not sound like a lot. BUT take a stick of butter and put it under your chin. WOW! a quater of a pound makes a big difference. Celebrate every loss not matter how big OR small!

McDonalds salad dressings

Whenever I'm at McDonalds with the kids I will buy a couple of extra salad dressings and throw them in my fridge. They sell Newman's low fat dressings there. Then when I'm going to a restaurant I don't know well, I'll throw one in my bag in case I order a salad but don't have good dressing choices.

Watch your high water mark

We all know that weight fluctuates during each day and from one day to the next. So, instead of watching my low weight number, I try to focus on my high water mark.

Get rid of the word "not"

So many focus on "I must not miss a workout" or "I must not eat outside of my ranges." Let's just wipe that word out. Let's flip those phrases. I'm strong enough to work out! I can eat healthy! I feel great when I drink water! Reminding ourselves of the positive aspects makes it so much easier

Drink your water

Drink your water! It really is the best way to rehydrate your thirsty body during the day. I allow myself to drink whatever I wish, but first have to drink all my water for the day .When I'm done drinking my water, I find my desire for anything else is either greatly dimished, or not even there.

SP Budget sheets

Using the SP budget sheets have really helped me to see where my money is going...I was spending waaaay too much on food (drive-thru more specifically) and magazines...now I limit the drive-thru and a group of friends & I share/swap magazines so we all save money!

Sure way to not over-eat

When you know you are full but want to keep eating anyway take salt, ketchup or even water and smother your food in it. Make it so nasty you couldn't stand to eat anymore.
