I grab my fat

When I want to eat something I don't need, usually a Snickers, I grab my belly fat. I reminds me that I already have a Snickers in storage.

Weight Loss Inspiration Bracelet

I put together a weight loss inspiration bracelet from items I purchased at the flea market. For a few dollars I have an item I can wear and keep with me always to remind me to BELIEVE in myself and BELIEVE I can do anything I put my mind to.
My bracelet is made from a second hand sterling chain bracelet with toggle clasp and a "BELIEVE" circle charm. If you would like to see I have loaded a photo into my Spark page photos.
It was very easy to put together with 2 pairs of needle nose pliers.

Use Your Walking Time Wisely

I walk for 30 minutes a day and when it's too hot here in Florida, I walk in the house while watching a favorite TV program. I get an upper body workout while walking by using my arms throughout the entire half hour.

moving around

If I sit at my home computer a lot of times I move my legs back and forth so they will get exercise.

Exercising with a buddy

Haven't found an adult to do my exercises with but my 2 year old great granddaughter loves to exercise with me. She makes it fun and she makes me smile as she tries to do what Grandma does. May not be what you are looking for but it works for me.

You do to have 5 minutes - get up and MOVE IT!:)

At several points throughout the day, I set a timer for 5 minutes, turn on some music and run in place, do some squats, grab a set of dumbbells - just get up and MOVE. It's fun and I can really work up a sweat! Even on days when I'm not really feeling it, I can talk myself into just turning on some music and pretending like I like to exercise for 5 minutes. Before I know it, I feel better! It's really great this time of year when it's too hot to go play outside and a fantastic stress reliever, too.

Cleaning

I know it's kind of a dirty word... sorry for the bad pun, but I find that when I need to move I can just work on some extra cleaning project or do some chore that is not usually my responsibility.

more veggies and whole grains

2 secrets - I took large bags of frozen vegetables into individual steamer bags with just 2 cups each - you can find these near the plastic sandwich bags in most stores. That way I can pull out a bag and make a serving batch quickly with no waste. (you could do one cup instead)

Brewed coffee refills

I love specialty coffees when I go out with friends, or for a break at work. But they're all calorie laden, and they cost a lot too. But those specialty coffee places always have brewed coffee available with special treats you can add. For me, I like to dress mine up with a little soy milk, one packet of sugar, and either cinnamin or unsweetened chocolate powder. And if the place offers a discount for using one of their mugs, so much the better.
