individual packets

If you divide large packs of crackers, pretzels, or chips into snack-size bags (about 1 cup each) you'll be less apt to overeat.

Dip your fork in your salad dressing.

Helps you to eat less dressing. Still get the taste of the dressing, get to taste more of the salad, and less calories. :)

Vanity

I have really learned that there is nothing wrong with vanity as my motivation. I *know* that I should be motivated by wanting to be healthy, being a better mom, etc... but honestly, embracing my vanity has helped me stay motivated more than anything.

Find a buddy

Finding a buddy who is going through some of the same struggles you are can be of benefit. If you are having trouble keeping up with exercise, check in with a friend who will help keep you accountable. Or better yet, find someone with whom you can exercise.

Cell phone - Not just for talking

I use a motivational picture as my wallpaper on my cell phone. I am reminded of my goals every time I pick up my phone and it is with me where ever I go. My ticker is really going in the right direction since I did this!

Exercise is CRUCIAL to lifelong success....

IMO, the elliptical is the single best all around piece of gym equipment. It has been beneficial in so many ways and exercises the whole body. I absolutely love it and has been my 'life saver"!

Share your successes

By sharing my success during the first few weeks, I discovered how amazing it feels to be congratulated! Before I spoke up, my friends noticed a difference in me but didn't say anything for fear of embarassing me. By letting them know I enjoy talking about it, I opened the door to their praise!

coupons and ads

Print coupons from the internet and then match them to the ads. I make it easy and take my ads and coupons to walmart as they match all competitor ads and accept on line printed coupons
