Water flavored with Sugar Free Drink Packets

If you have a hard time drinking water, I have a 70-oz water jug that I got at Dollar Tree for, of course, $1. Instead of just plain water, I add two of the stick packs instead of 4 required for the amount of water. It is sweet enough and has no calories or sugar.

Making a List, Checking it OFTEN

When I get discouraged, I go back to a list I made of all the reasons that it is important to me to live a healthier lifestyle and to lose weight. That almost always gets me right back on track!

Reasons and Goals

Make sure you have a goal in mind and keep little reminders of why you are doing what you are doing. Even if it is notes in your bag, diary or calendar. Something that you look at everyday.

QUIET TIME

Take some time, (I usually like early morning before anyone else is up and about), to: reflect, read, pray, & listen to some soft music. It helps me to collect my thoughts. It helps me to stay focused, consider where I've been, and think about what I still need to accomplish. Peace to all!

Learn to LOVE change


As we embrace the benefits of the changes we make, we develop new habits... hopefully, these are healthier, wholesome changes that will enhance our quality of life. This is what I am coming to learn for and about myself.

Morning Time

Do it right away. I find that if I dink that first water, get on that treadmill, log that food right away, first thing in the morning it starts a roll.

It is harder if I lollygag, skip breakfast, or hold off on any of it.

Mini weight Goals

I like using mini weight goals to keep me motivated. My goals use the next smallest number from my weigh in. Like now I weigh in at 116.1 kilos, my next goal is to weigh in the 115s kilos. And it works really well. I always have that next number in my head when I eat or work out. It really works!
