I grab my fat

Treat It Like A Job

When I asked a young woman who had lost 200 pounds how she did it, she said that she treated weight loss like a job. No matter how she felt, she showed up. She showed up at the grocery store to buy the right food, she showed up to track her food, she showed up to walk, etc.

Figure out what you are hungry for - it might not be food

Hunger isn't necessarily for food!

When I am tired, I am hungry for sleep.
When I am thirsty, I am hungry for liquids.

Don't eat food when you need friends, or fluids, or sleep!!!...

Track the Foods (and Drinks) you Consume Every Single Day (Even those Small Snacks at the Office!)

I was most successful in my weight loss efforts when I took the time to track the foods I ate every single day. When I took the time to track the calories in that slice of cake I had at the office or the pizza slice one of my co-workers sent in my direction, it was a real eye-opener how the calorie...
