Taking Our Eyes Off The Scale

We often view our weightloss success by the reading on the scale. We need to remember that weightloss is not to be our ultimate goal, but the end result of a healthy lifestyle. Weightloss will come once we begin developing healthier habits.

80 - 20 Rule Rocks

I planned ahead for the week and tried to stay on track. On Friday i went out with the girls and consumed alcohol and a few high calorie snacks. Needless to say when i weighed myself on Sunday i had lost 3 pounds.

So don't beat up yourself when you have strayed a little.

stop the munchies

Often when I can't stay away from snack foods, I stop and think and realize it's time to eat and fix a real meal which takes my desire for junk food away

Weigh in as Reward and Consequence

I weigh myself twice a week; just once on Monday after a weekend of indulgences (consequences and truth) then again on Saturday morning after a week of discipline (reward) -sometimes).

Great Snack!

When I get the munchies for something sweet, I eat Frosted Mini Wheat or Honey Nut Cheerios cereal. They are whole grain and low calorie.
It's kind of like having your cake and eating it too.

Eat Breakfast and Snacks!

Eating breakfast and small healthy snacks throughtout each day made a huge impact on my weight loss. I keep snacks at my desk, in the car, in my purse, on the shelves at home. I prepare snacks, lunch and sometimes breakfast the night before. That takes away any excuses (running late).

Don't give up!

If you aren't seeing results from a change in diet or exercise or you have a day when you eat too much, don't' give up! View your setback a temporary and as an learning opportunity to see what you need to do to get back on track.
