Treat possibilities as probabilities

"The most important thing in life is to stop saying "I wish" and start saying "I will." Consider nothing impossible, then treat possibilities as probabilities." David Copperfield

With out goals we are just wondering aimlessly

We need to set attainable goals. Then we need to keep focused on our goals to be able to reach them.
Find a way to remind yourself of that goal every day, or more often if needed.
Have a reward waiting for you when you meet goal, it will help you keep going.

Start with short term goal.

I had diet therapy and he always said 10 days. Go strict for 10 days to see how your body feels. When I would be tempted to cheat, I would say I could have it after the 10 days. It was long enough to build a good habit, and let me know my body feels better eating healthy (more energy, less pain)

Get Back To It Straight Away!!

This is not a "diet". Having an off snack, meal, day? Having a few days when you don't work out? That is life. Stuff happens, life happens. The trick is get back to your healthy living ASAP! Try to make the very next choice a healthy one. It is the overall pattern that makes a healthy lifestyle!

All of the clothes that don't fit anymore!

I think about all of the clothes I have sitting in my closet, just waiting for me to fit into them again! I'll pull out a few of my favorite peices and leave them hanging at the front of my closet so I see them every day!

Being Active

When you fall off track get back on by being active for at least 30 minutes a day. Take a bike ride or walk away the pounds. If you feel up to a challenge do some Turbo Jam. Stay motivated and focused on your end goal

Tomorrow is Always a New Day!

You never drown by simply falling overboard in the water. You drown when you stay there. Life will always be filled with mishaps & bad choices, but stop immediately, admit the error, look back at how far you've come & climb back in the boat. We can't do it over, but we can do it right the next time.
