We are all human.

We can forget this and even crave more attention and perfection at this stage. Remind yourself of where you have come from and achieved. You are still moving and moving forward even though the numbers and comments may be at a stand still. You did not do this for that but to be healthy and happy.

Have a plan.

We talk about doing it, want to do it, dream about it- so why don't we? Plan it out, commit to it and do it. Keep it simple and short. No lying to yourself with excuses and dates. Do not let yourself go adrift with figuring it out as you go.

Distractions

Shinny objects just don't work on dogs and kids! Many of us eat when we need comfort for a variety of reasons stressed, angry, tired and many others. Identify the issue and acknowledge it so you can own it. Have a "distraction" ready to help distract you from the issue once identified.

Positive not only in what you say but in how you think.

We think if we do not say it out loud it does not matter. Who hears it anyway? YOU DO!!! Even in a joking manner this is still going to pull you down and enable you to continue to be negative. So if you are negative you are negative and positive you are positive, which are you?

Do not live in fear.

Many live with the fear of going back to our old habits and ways losing all that we have done. Know that you have and will continue to do it. You will adapt what you do and find a balance to your healthy ways and life in general. Never live in fear but in confidence in what you have and will do!

Have Fun!

By watching the Biggest Loser or seeing others struggle and hate what they are doing is no way to live. May take some trial and error but have fun and appreciate that you are doing.

Baby Steps

Do not do it all at once. Build and take baby steps. Start with sleeping more, drinking 8 cups a day and making sure you eat breakfast lunch and dinner. Build upon it and add new things every week or two as you feel comfortable.

Deconstruct your favorite meals!

Take apart any meal you like and break it into it's basic components. Realize what it is that you like so much about it and how you can reconstruct that in a healthy fun way! emoticon emoticon

Love yourself!

Losing the weight is the easy part, loving yourself no matter what is the hard part! Say "Thank You" when someone says something nice about you and start loving yourself. For if we do not love ourselves how can we expect other to as well? emoticon emoticon
