Do it Now

Weight loss only gets tougher as we get older. You will never again be as young as you are today, so go out and exercise and eat right. Don't put it off any longer.

Breakfast versus Dinner Smackdown!

If you want to lose weight, make sure you intake more calories earlier in the day. It's not the time of day that matters (a calorie is a calorie); it's that you're giving yourself a chance to burn it during the day.

Fiber One Bread

If you've ever had trouble getting enough fiber into your diet, this is the bread for you. It comes in great flavors including - ha! - white, which are packed full o' fiberiffic goodness. Don't forget the reduced fat peanut butter.

The Spark People Feed

The feed will show a lot of things -- and it may turn out to be more than you'd like to share. I limit mine a bit because otherwise it's a lot of info going out there into the ether. You may feel differently but a lil mystery is kinda nice.

Workin' SparkPeople

This is not a hard site to navigate if you have a plan. Log in, spin the wheel, record the food and then the exercise. Then play with anything else (e. g. post, blog, read articles, etc.). But get those 3 basics done first.

Routines are vital

After maybe a month of doing the same or similar things, they start to become habits. And that's when the magic really starts: because you forget that it's a chore, and it just turns into something you do every day because, well, because you just do it. Like morning workouts.

Vegetarian Night

A lot of good can be done by going meatless once in a while, say, once per week. There are people who balk at this, so feed 'em vegetarian chili and don't tell them it's meatless. Surprise! They ate something that was good for them!

Calculate the Cost over Time

Bargains are all well and good, but do you really need what you're buying? How long will it last? Will you use it? An expensive sweater you will wear a lot for the next few years is a bargain. A cheap tee shirt that will fall apart at the second wearing is too expensive.

It's just one error

Or maybe it's two, but it doesn't have to be the end of everything. If you were driving and took a wrong turn, you wouldn't abandon your car, right? So why abandon your healthy lifestyle if you slip up and have a piece of pie?

Water Rituals

At first, 64 oz/day is daunting. Learn what works for you - a special bottle, a temperature, a time of day, a flavor stick, whatever. If it helps you to drink the water, do it.
