drink lots of water

drinking water before each meal helps me to eat less. I find if you drink one glass of cold water you get full faster. I also use water in between meals if I feel hungry. Sometimes that satisfy and I tend to snack less.

Make and Complete One Healthy Choice , and then another, and another...

When it seems like there is just "too much to do," take one deep breath. Then choose one small thing to do and complete every day. Then do the same small thing the next day, and add one more healthy choice. Keep doing the previous small things, and soon you will have created many healthy habits!

Take Healthy Snack with you when you go

I have to travel quite a bit to go anywhere, as I live in a very rural area. I always pack healthy snacks and water for the day, so I am not tempted to stop and eat anywhere.

Always have a water bottle readily available

Getting in water is one of the hardest challenges for me. I typically just don't drink a lot of fluids. So here is what I have learned to do to help. I have 2 water bottles at all times. One in front of me and one in the refrigerator.

True friends - they are not looking to change me or make me into something that I am not. The world is a better place because I am in it. I can spread gloom or I can spread cheer I decide and I make MY own decisions I choose to smile - a smile is contagious a frown is not.

When I'm Feeling Down

When I'm feeling a little blue because things are not quite going the way I'd planned, I find a reason to laugh! A good joke, a funny email from a friend, an old memory. And boy can I laugh! And the next thing you know, I'm feeling great and back on track. Laughter really is the best medicine!
