Fight for Every Pound!

A journey of 10,000 miles is made up of small steps. FIGHT for every pound, so when it's gone, it is such a victory, and you don't want to refight for that same one.

Be 100% TOTALLY Honest with YourSELF!

True awareness of why the weight isn't coming off begins with 100% total honesty about the quantity of everything we eat (weight, ounces, or serving size), the content of what we eat (how much sodium, sugar, etc. is in the food), and how much truly active exercise we're getting on a daily basis.

Fudging to ourselves about any aspect of our plan only harms our SELVES! It's time to be REAL and Focus on being honest with ourselves so we can succeed and be who we want to become!

Water, Water, Water!

I use to be a big soda drinker (diet soda) and even diet soda is bad for you. When I would drink it, I'd crave sweets all the time. Since stopping it, I drink water. I don't like water, but drinking it non stop every day has really helped me to enjoy it. Sometimes, I switch it up and put a lime in it & put it in the fridge overnight. In the morning it taste great! I also add a strawberry or lime to it and take it with me. It has really helped me to focus on drinking water and I've lost weight too

Get Most food for your calories

Make sure you don't settle for quick and easy food that is high in calories, and won't fill you up.
Pick food that is high in protein and volume

Eat a medley of 6 fruits pieces with lunch & 6 veggie pieces with dinner.

Eat a medley of 6 fruits pieces with lunch & 6 veggie pieces with dinner. Take 6 fruits or vegetables and cut them into about 1 ounce portions. This makes about a cup.

You won't get sick of the taste because it's only 1 small piece per day of each kind. Plus you can create 2 or 3 medleys.

I used to buy a whole pound bag of broccoli & cauliflower, then I would get sick of it and wouldn't want any more veggies for awhile.

This will help to keep you full and to eat healthier.

Give up caffeine

Giving up caffeine (cola) has really helped me to control my sugar cravings and to cut down on snacking. Now I drink water and green tea instead, my skin is better too!

Eating Program

My eating program is NOT a diet. This time around I've decided to track nutrition on the SparkPeople nutrition tracker. I allow myself about 2000 calories a day, but try to stay with the recommended fat/protein/carbohydrate percentages. I lose a little more slowly than on a lower calorie program, but I'm training myself to eat "normally" forever. emoticon emoticon

Eat a good breakfast

When I start the day with a good breakfast including protein. I usually have eggs or a protein shake. It starts my day off and I don't seem to crave for junk food. emoticon
