Love your body- "Somebody does"

Everyone wants to lose weight, i know. Today, i was complaining about how much i eat and need to cut back, and a total stranger told me, " You look great, be thankful that you even have an appetite to eat, I wish my wife did, but she is dying from cancer".

Don't know what to eat today?

i have diet bowls sitting on my counter, one is labeled healthy snacks, one is labeled fruits, one is labeled vegetables, meat, exercise etc. In these bowls i have put strips of paper in them of choices that must be included in order for me to lose weight. This gives me a new choice everyday.

Giving up on exercise?

When i get tired of my favorite exercise videos, which i am sure everyone does at some time, i get out my camcorder/web cam and i put on my favorite music cd on LOUD, sometimes i will create a mixed cd that is perfect for working out, then for about 30-45 minutes, i will create my own workout video.

Have you plateaued?

I have found out that when my body plateaus, it is going into starvation mode because of my decrease in calories, my body isn't use to that. So, i eat more calories than i am supposed to for about 2 days, then drop my calories back down, then i can lose weight.

last month sucks!!!

if your last month weight loss was not what you hoped it would be, and maybe you even gained a littile. Sit down with your journal/ or blank piece of paper, and write down a list of what you did positive this month for your diet, and what you know that you did to sabotage yourself, BE HONEST!!

Don't feel like it?

Whenever i don't feel like exercising during the day, i completely strip naked in a full length mirror, and turn on a exercise dvd of my choice. i am always amazed at how quickly i begin exercising.

GO NUTS and BRUSH YOUR TEETH

when i feel like having a snack, i have the habit of wanting something crunchy and sweet, so i find my favorite yougurt/low fat and i add grape nuts cereal to it. This combination cures my sweet tooth, and the grapenuts give me that constant crunch that potato chips give me.
