If you're serious about losing weight, you'll be sure to incorporate healthy habits no matter where you are. I choose to make my office job the epicentre for losing weight. I have a large water bottle that I fill in the morning and again at lunch (=6 glasses of water), I have my vitamins and supplements on my desk to remind myself to take them, I have a chain of paperclips to visually remind myself of my goals (1 clip=1 lb and clips are removed from the chain).
Everyday, I save at least 200 calories in my "food bank" for a (preferably salty) snack in the evening! This way, when I crave a snack after supper (salty or sweet) I don' t go over my set calorie goal for the day.
I was on a five week plateau and tried everything to shake it off. It wasn't until I focused on nutrition, that the scale started to move. I met with a nutritionist and learned that the most efficient way to boost the nutrients is through drinking a smoothie every morning. After two weeks, I lost an additional 4.5 pounds!
