Find what works for you

If you don't like tofu, don't eat it. If you hate gyms, then don't go. Finding things that you like to do/eat but are healthy too will make it much easier to stick with.
Substitute healthier versions of your favourite foods, and find exercise that is fun for you. Remember, this is for life!

Tattletale on Yourself

Tell everyone that you know that you're losing weight. Not just that you're losing weight, but what made you decide to do it. (Even, if not *especially* you're most embarrassing story) You can deceive people online, but not in person. It'll keep you accountable!

Drink, drink, drink!

Drink lots of water! Drinking eight to ten glasses of water a day helps me feel full longer, helps my body feel more energized, and helps the weight come off in a healthy way!

One day at a time

Take it one day at a time. Sometimes I am so eager to lose weight that I get upset when I dont see results right away. But then I remember what my mom always told me, "Give time, time." It helps me remember that losing weight doesnt happen instantly.

Daris Said It

Daris said it on the Biggest Loser: If dinner is at 5:30, and you stay up until 3:00 a.m., you're bound to eat.

I'm working on having a low cal snack at 9:00 or 10:00 p.m., and then going to bed.

Tracking Saturated Fats

In the "track more nutrients" feature on SP, I added Saturated Fats. It has been a huge eye opener with foods I eat every day (and I eat very healthy) and has really helped make better decisions.

Food Tracking

I write every single thing I'll be eating for the day in the morning. If I deviate from that, I have to go back and revise my Food Tracker.

Eat at least one fruit or veggie at every meal.

Raw fruits and veggies (or cooked veggies without oil) are full of water and fiber and fill me up so that I don't eat as many calories.
