Be You

I saw this somewhere and loved it- "Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken."

Be ruthlessly honest about what it will take to change

Instead of making short term goals only or halfway attempts, to really get back on track I needed to take an honest look at what it would take to achieve permanent change. I had to assess if I was ready to make the commitment.Then I made a promise to log my foods at least 5x/wk. and to walk at least 3-4x/wk. and to begin strength training, and decided that I was not going to try a crash diet or to angst about exact calories, but to move forward boldly and publicly.

How to Get Rid of Old Clothes

When you switch out your summer and winter clothese in your closet put the hangers on backwards. When you wear that item of clothing turn the hanger around the right way. That way you know what you have worn. At the end of the season get rid of anything that is still hung the wrong way.

One Minute Yoga

Resistant to starting exercise, I used the OMY team to get me going. I knew that keeping a small promise (just one minute) would start me moving again and it really did!!

Don't Let Anyone Define Your Limits

"Don't tell me what I can't do!" One of Locke's signature phrases in LOST. So true! If I had listened to everyone's perceptions of my limits, I would have never started running at 275 lbs. My 5K race at 244 lbs was called "crazy. Sure, crazy awesome!

Live the life YOU dream about! At any weight!

Consistency

I've lost 10 pounds in 8 weeks with SparkPeople. It doesn't matter if you mess up a day, or miss a workout, just get back to it, do what you've learned here, and you WILL lose too!

Help Others and Share Positive Affirmations

I find that by helping others and sharing in their successes, it helps me too. I encourage people by being positive. As the saying goes "misery loves company", but I'm a firm believer that it works the other way around, tenfold!

Chocolate Cravings

when I get that sudden crave for chocolate I grab a small handfull of semi-sweet chocolate chips, instead of reaching for the chocolate ice cream, chocolate cake, brownies or other high calorie chocolate fix. 1 oz (about 60 chips) has just 132 calories.

reward yourself

Give yourself a reward that is not based around food or money, such as having a relaxing bath. This way you can break the link between a reward and food or money and keep on track.So if I have lost some weight I reward myself in other ways that do not involve food or spending money.

Re-evaluation

It's okay to start fresh when you're having trouble staying consistent. Sometimes evaluating what isn't working is the next step for continued (or new!) success.
