I grab my fat

When I want to eat something I don't need, usually a Snickers, I grab my belly fat. I reminds me that I already have a Snickers in storage.

Paper Clip Chain

I keep a chain of paper clips next to my computer monitor at work. Each paper clip represents one pound lost. They are always front and center to help keep me motivated. I remember to say "No thank you" to the office doughnuts.

Invest in a Food Scale!

Measuring portions is critical to successful weight loss, but it can be so tedious! Counting out 17 crackers or trying to scrape the remaining peanut butter from the tablespoon got old fast. Then I discovered the food scale - now I will NEVER be without one! Want a peanut butter sandwich? Place the bread on the scale and then zero it out - add peanut butter until the grams read "32" and you have an exact portion - and no tablespoons were soiled in the process. :) Super fast for everything!

Try a Leisure Walk Today

Remember that it doesn't have to be "all out" every time. Stop and smell the roses, watch the flitting butterflies, listen to the music of moving water. Enjoy. Next thing you know, you've walked way past your planned mileage.

Get leverage on yourself

I used to avoid letting anyone know I was working to lose weight. That way, I wouldn't be embarassed if I didn't lose. Now, I tell EVERYONE, because the potential embarassment is motivational. I've now got leverage on myself.

Interval Training made My Scale Dial Move in the Right Direction!

I couldn’t walk outdoors due to the rainy weather.
So I pulled out a Leslie Sansone DVD titled: “Walk Slim – Fast Start!”
It contained episodes of “Interval Training.” It really changed up my walking routine in a hurry. My weight loss had been slowing down. After a couple of sessions using the DVD with the Interval Training, my scale showed a significant weight loss. It was just what I needed to get things moving again in the right direction.
I’m sold. Interval Training is result producing!

Weights and Measures!

Weigh and measure everything that you cook and eat! Most of us suffer from proportion distortion and underestimate what we eat.
When you take the time to measure liquids and weigh solids, you will come to learn just how much you're eating!

Visual Motivation in a Jar!

Keep a clear glass jar somewhere you see it all the time and put in it a penny for every 1lb of weight you lose. Seeing number of pennies in the jar growing is excellent motivation, just be sure to take them out if you gain - not wanting to remove any pennies is a great way to keep yourself on track!
