But I Don't Wanna!

Exercise is the key to feeling great. We all know that, but some days, we just don't feel motivated to move AT ALL. My trick, on those days, is to do at least the warm-up portion of the DVD, walking/running program, etc. Stop after that if you want, but I bet you won't!!

Going to class

Since my step daughter joined my water workout class, she has encouraged me to attend more regularly. My friends in the class keep me going once I'm there, but SD gets me in the door!

I Promise

You can do it.

Just be committed to keeping the promises you make to yourself the way you would be committed to keeping any promise you would make to a child.Jazz

GRAB and GO and SAVE

No need to buy the expensive 100 cal snacks I make my own. I weigh/measure nuts, fruits, cheese, etc. in snack bags or containers. Then I put all the snack bags in either a bowl in the refrigerator or in the fruit bowl on the counter. Healthy snacks are ready for me to GRAB and Go

faceing your giants

I noticed in the past I would avoid mirrors, hated the way I looked and was ashamed of how I looked so I never walked past a mirror if I could help it & if I had to I just wouldn't face that way so I couldn't see myself as the fat person I truly was.

Like Yourself... Better Yet, Love Yourself

When I read blogs and profiles, it really bothers me when people says such horrible things about themselves. STOP IT! Never say anything to yourself that you wouldn't say to a friend. Even if I still weighed 268 or if I gained another 200 pounds, I would still be a good person.

Love your body!

You and your body are not enemies! Your body is your friend who needs your help. And don't forget to reward it after tough exercises: go to the spa or beauty salon, buy lotion for body, face cream, or just new shower gel with tasty flavour, and your body will be grateful

Action Movie: daylight

whenever I need motivation I think of the movie Daylight. A tunnel collapses and the survivors must fight to survive. Do you really want to be the fat chic that dies in the beginning cause she couldn't pull herself to safety??
