Lose the 'Stuff' in Your Garage Every Year

small size

My best little secret is how I lost weight and keep it off. It is very simple really, use a dessert plate instead of a dinner plate. Only take 1 spoon full of each item and 1 piece of meat each meal. No seconds. Cut down on starches and sugars. Eat more vegetables and fruits. You will loose weight.

track, track, track and fake it till you make it!

Track EVERYTHING you eat no matter how small.
Workout every day even if you don't feel like it. Fake it till you make it and it will soon become a habit that you look forward to.
Be consistent with both of these no matter what.
