I grab my fat

When I want to eat something I don't need, usually a Snickers, I grab my belly fat. I reminds me that I already have a Snickers in storage.

Treat It Like A Job

When I asked a young woman who had lost 200 pounds how she did it, she said that she treated weight loss like a job. No matter how she felt, she showed up. She showed up at the grocery store to buy the right food, she showed up to track her food, she showed up to walk, etc.

Figure out what you are hungry for - it might not be food

Hunger isn't necessarily for food!

When I am tired, I am hungry for sleep.
When I am thirsty, I am hungry for liquids.
When I am feeling down, I'm hungry for support.
When I am feeling lonely, I'm hungry for people.

Don't eat food when you need friends, or fluids, or sleep!!! Recognize what your hunger actually is for, and satisfy it with what it is craving.

Ice cream rarely gives you extra sleep, quenches your thirst, or gives you a hug!

Lemon Water=Weight Loss+Clear Skin

Not only is drinking a minimum of 64 oz. of water essential to weight loss, squeezing a lemon into about 32 oz. a day can lead to excellent benefits. Lemons are very high in vitamin C, magnesium, calcium, and potassium. Drinking lemon water will help stimulate and filter your liver and kidneys. You'll reap the benefits by losing more weight and having a better complexion. You can also fight colds and the flu more effectively!!!!

Focus on losing FAT, not weight.

When focusing on losing the fat, the weight will follow. It is the fat that is unhealthy on our bodies. Even thin people can carry too much fat if they do not exercise, and this as we all know leads to hypertension etc...
