Responsibility

Take responsibility for where you are--the food didn't jump into your mouth on its own, no one force fed you--you chose to eat poorly. Now, take responsibility for changing that and giving yourself credit for eating well and turning things around!

Never Give up!

Even when you "fall off the wagon" don't let it stop you. Take a breath and get back into a healthy schedule!

Gotta Keep At It

It took a long time to put on the weight or get so out of shape. It is going to take even longer to reverse the process, so you have to keep going even if you get discouraged.

Baby Steps work

A little motivation to keep at it, even if you are only doing what seem like very small steps--eventually, those little changes will become normal and habit, and you can move on to trying something new. As each step becomes your norm, it becomes easier to avoid the things that used to trip you up.

Sneaky Starts

Make small changes to change your habits. If you gradually reduce the amount of salt you use in cooking, for example, maybe by a teaspoon at a time, you will allow your palate to adjust to the new taste and it will be much more pleasing to your taste buds!

Read Labels!!

Read the label for everything before you buy it--you will be amazed at how much salt, sugar and other "junk" you are putting in your body!!

Get rid of that salt!

I don't use a salt shaker anymore. I keep kosher salt in a container and use a 1/4 tsp measure to salt food. Most of the time I use less than the 1/4 tsp and when I do use it, it keeps me aware of how much salt I am adding to food.

It's Never Too Late

It's never too late to start on a healthy lifestyle. Sooner is better, but don't use a day lost as an excuse!

THINK before your leap

Don't "jump" into a new plan just because someone else has, or because you read about it on the internet! Thank--is this a lifestyle that I can maintain indefinitely? Or will it get impossible to continue after a week or two?
