Motto to live by...

I have my favorite motto posted in my office and it says "Nothing tastes as good as THIN feels!" I have a look at it whenever there is birthday cake in the kitchen at work or when co-workers bring in goodies to share!

Shop around for the best credit card

I have a credit card that gives points for dollars spent. You redeem your points for gift cards. I pay the entire bill every month (no interest for me!) At Christmas, or other gift giving holidays I use my points towards gift cards. Free presents!

Stay with the plan

I find that if I stay with the plan, regardless of the results that I am always better off. Sometimes it doesn't look like I'm making progress at the time, but when I look back I can see that I have. Stay the course!

CARDIO!!

Every time someone asks me "how did you loose all the weight?" My answer is always the same "CARDIO"
Start with just 5 minutes a day and build on it every week. You'll get there!!

I trick my salad

I add some water to 1 tsp of olive oil to make it go further on my salad. After adding the vinegar you can't tell the difference.

The scale doesn't lie

This is the best way to know if I need to scale my eating back and my exercise up after returning from a trip.. I'd rather know when the difference is small...before the weight creeps up on me!

make sure you move every day

Start small, if you haven't exercised for a while, start by taking small steps. walk further from the car to the store. When you need to mail a letter, walk to the nearest drop box instead of puttin git in your mailbox. We can all get a few minutes extra just by thinking ahead and planning

Role Players In Your Life

I have learned there are role players in my weight loss journey. There people who are "safe" to share the good and bad times in my weight loss journey. And there are the folks who have the role of telling me that I look like I have lost weight.
