Quick Breakfast-Dont skip it!

In the morning I know it is hard to get a good breakfast in. Some of us do not have the time to make eggs and so on. Instead I make a quick smoothie and put it in a cute cup.

Use 1-2 cups of almond milk/coconut water
Add fruits and veggies!
I usually mix strawberries/spinach
Blackberries/Kale
Freeze your fruit it will last longer and you will not have to use ICE because that will make your smoothie watery.

BYOSD -- Bring your own salad dressing!

I buy a lovely yogurt-based salad dressing (only 45 calories per 2 tablespoons). When I go out to eat, I put the dressing I need in a small air-tight container. I use it instead of the dressings offered at the restaurant. I save a LOT of calories and there is no guessing!

Grapefruit juice( non concentrate) or if you prefer freash... with apple cider vinager ,orange juice and honey

me and my husband drink this 2 x daily before 2 meals.mix grapefruit juice ( grapefruit Fat Burner) and apple cider vinegar. mix 1 cup of grapefruit juice with 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, stir, and enjoy. The juice is loaded with vitamin C, which will help you burn fat faster, especially during exercise. Meanwhile, the acetic acid contained in the vinegar may switch on genes your body needs to pump out fat-burning proteins. If you find it bit tart, add 1 tsp of honey for sweetness.

hydration!

I am NOT a huge fan of plain water, and so for years, I would drink ice cold water with about a tbsp. of regular juice mixed in - like a VERY diluted watered drink. For those of us transitioning to drinking straight water (from drinking lots of heavy calorie drinks), I think this was a great tactic! HOWEVER, over the past year, I have begun to tweak my habits a bit more, and have been now been drinking ice-cold water with lemon juice mixed in (I use concentrate). Its DELISH AND FILLING!!!

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
