Coffee!!!

Having a small cup (6-8 oz) of coffee with a tsp of sugar when I get hungry between meals or snacks helps me from over snacking. a cup with sugar is only 18 cals!!

Omit unhealthy carbs; sugar, bread pasta

To endure means to suffer patiently. To envision a better thinner body I endure by abstaining from temporary treats that taste good. Also if I'm hungry or craving there are many low carb healthy options.

Make peace with anything that you need to. Drink mostly water. get enough sleep. exercise in the morning an before breakfast burns more fat. bath as hot as you can stand it ( don't burn yourself) helps burn fat. tell your weekly weigh in to someone keeps you motivated/accountable. do mostly cardio. use some weights. use a tape measure track that way too. watch motivating videos often. get an exercise buddy. move to your favorite songs. don't deny yourself treats, but watch how often/portions.

Half portions..

When I first lost weight 5 years ago, I didn't know about Spark at first and had a lot to lose, so I ate the same things, but cut each portion I'd usually eat in half. It was an easy way to cut calories since I was eating way too much. I lost 50 pounds that year. After I'd started losing that way, I added in exercise and started making better food choices too. It all adds up.

Cancel your Cable!

I cancelled my cable and got Netflix and Amazon Prime. I also pledged that I will only watch TV while I exercise. So I pick a show to follow and for the 30 minutes on the treadmill, I watch that show. If it gets really interesting it also helps motivate me to get up in the morning. Best part is you don't get any tempting food commercials!! emoticon

Key Elements: Food Tracking, Water, Exercise, and Sleep

Food tracking by reading the actual calorie and nutrition content and staying in your calorie range for your body. Real food is real fuel for the body. Water, what the body is mostly made of. can be depleted if not replaced. It can't move the nutrients properly. Exercise strengthens and prepares the body for rest. Sleep lets the body regenerate for the next day's work. All four elements are key to healthy weight loss.

Konjac and Garcinia Cambogia 2x/day to feel full and speed up weight loss

I struggled with constant hunger - I mean I felt like I was STARVING all the time. I started taking Konjac Root (Nutrigold) 2x/day (first thing in the morning, and early afternoon) along with Garcinia Cambogia (heard about it on Dr. Oz - not proven to work though) and it has REALLY helped. I also cut way back on gluten, artificial sweeteners and any added sugar, which probably also helped make cravings subside. I lost 50 lbs. in 7 months and feel fantastic.

Jin Shin Jyutsu for Weight Loss

I started Jin Shin Jyutsu, a Japanese form of hands-on healing, because I was fascinated by its effects on my mood and energy.
After two weeks of daily practice (10 minutes or so), I noticed I had lost around 3 kgs or so. This was when I started taking Jin Shin Jyutsu even more seriously. It can be a great help for almost any psychological and/or physical issue and is a beautiful art as well.

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!
