You aren't cheat anyone but yourself

Don't skip logging in certain foods or that extra cookie, etc. You are fooling anyone including yourself. Be Honest and you will know why or why not you are losing weight.

Log before anything goes into the mouth

Never place anything in your mouth before weighing it and logging it into your handwritten journal or Spark - it gives you time to think "Do I really want/need this"

Make sure you are eating enough

Silly as it may sound - make sure your calorie intake is enough for your calorie burn - to little food intake makes your body hold those pounds.

Remember there is always someone else

When I feel down on myself, because of a bad day or bad workout - I remember there is always someone else out there who can't workout at all and wishes they could or is having a worse day than I. I am always lucky to be having a better day than them and was able to workout.

Find someone to be accountable to

By finding an exercise buddy - who knows your plan - either virtual or in person. You have someone to be accountable to, besides to yourself. You are more likely to follow through on your plans.

Your friends

I find that when my motivation is starting to twindle down - I remember all my Spark friends who have such faith in me and I remember how far I have come.

If you eat out....

If you eat out never go places that you don't have a coupon for...check out the newspaper flyers or magazine flyers you receive in the mail - also check out their websites.

Always Remember

I always remember no matter how bad I think things are for me - there is someone out there who has it worse. It makes me feel thankful.

Think before putting anything in your mouth

Be mindful of your eating. Think before you put anything in your mouth. Question yourself are you really hungry or just bored, anxious, nervous, etc. While you are at it - log that food too before it goes into your mouth - not after the fact.
