Use your trackers to look for patterns

After working on weight loss for a while, I finally realized that if I looked at my nutrition tracker and my activity trackers for the weeks when I had good weight losses, it was easy to find out what I did that really worked. I have found my personal plan for weight loss from doing this--and I have 9 weeks of consistent weight loss from following it. emoticon

I CAN do this!!

I really can do whatever I need to do to live a healthy lifestyle. I can eat well and manage/ control what I eat. I can exercise daily. I can fit in extra good things.
I do this because I like it.

Baby Steps

It is important to remember that being overweight or obese didn't happen over night and it takes building new habits, one at a time to over come. Fast break goals are those "baby steps" that we need. Pick something that you know will help make a difference and whittle at it--after a couple of weeks, add on a new goal to the first one. (If you try to change everything at once, it will probably burn you out and you will "give up.") emoticon

Being sick--The BRAT diet

I have had a lousy weekend after coming down with a nasty stomach bug. The entire time I was lousy, I kept thinking about what I should eat. The reality is that we have to do what we need for good health. Don't forget the BRAT diet--bananas, rice, applesauce, toast. It will get you through!! (It's not only for our kids!)

Starting Over/ Holy Week

For those of you who are Christians, this quote says it all:

"The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction and the opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances." Robert Flatt

Starting over is a special gift and we should take into it what we have learned from previous attempts. This is the perfect time and season of rebirth to go for it!!

Don't give up on Spark People!!

Life sometimes sends obstacles to us--and these can be tough--time consuming or stressful or painful or destructive in other ways. That should not stop us from having success in improving our lifestyle and our health. If you have to, cut back on the time you spend here on the SP site. Choose a couple of parts that will keep you on an even keel--like logging in and tracking food and/or fitness. Eventually, you can become active in the community again as you deal with your life.

You CAN do this

No matter what is going on, no matter what mistakes you made today or yesterday--just stick with it. You are making changes in the way that you live and little by little, piece by piece, you will get this big job done and you will be so glad that you did this. emoticon

Stir things up!!

I've read it before, but it is working for me. Change your food choices and exercise around--don't get in a rut because your body follows that rut. I have added some regular foods (some that I avoided because of calories) and switched around the times I eat things. I also played around with my workouts--and have lost 9.6 pounds in the past two weeks.

Happy New Year!!

You CAN do whatever you set your mind to doing. The first step in this accomplishment is in knowing what it is that you need (or want) to accomplish. Set your goals--long term for the important , big items and then medium range and short term goals to create the steps that will get you there. emoticon

Time to Help Yourself!!

If somehow you have strayed and have been nibbling a bit of this and/or that--NOW is the time to say "WHOA!!" The big holidays have passed and "they say" that whatever you are doing on New Year as the clock strikes 12 is how you'll spend your year. That makes NOw a good time to get back on track and your focus will have you on a healthy eating track as the new year becomes this year. emoticon
