Make It Known
Tell everybody you see about the success you have had with Sparkpeople and give them your screen name. I just told someone tonight and I told her it was free and it saved me from Lap Band Surgery!
Walk The Pressure Off!
I just keep moving because for every pound I lose, my knees bear 4 lbs less each time. To date, my knees thinks I've lost 112 lbs! Woo Hoo!
Drink Water With Lemon
Cut up a half of a lemon and put it in a 70 oz water bottle and fill it up and put water in it and put in the frig. I use it for a few days so three lemons would last me over a week!
Banquet Homestyle Bakes
Do not get the Banquet Homestyle Bakes because they are loaded with sodium, 1330 mgs, more than half of our daily recommended amount and besides, it tastes gross. I will make my own chicken and dumplings from now on!
Make Your Own Dish Soap (Liquid)
Make your own homemade environmentally friendly dish soap. You'll need 2 c. castille oil, 1/2 c. water, 5 drops of lemon essential oil, 1 t. lemon juice and 1/2 c. vinegar. Shake well before using.
Skim milk has been proved in helping you lose weight. I think it is the calcium. I sure miss my milk when I don't have it.
Breakfast Of This Champion
I am trying to eat healthier. My new food of choice is Eggo Nutrigrain Whole Wheat Waffles with a few squirts of "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" spray and a sprinkle of cinnamon along with some fruit.
Put Bar of Soap in Bed
This is supposed to get rid of leg cramps at night. I haven't tried it yet but the person who told me about it swears by it. Put a bar of soap like Irish Spring or Dial and it's supposed to prevent cramps. Weirder things have happened so try it out.
Donate Coke Rewards for Schools
Check to see if the school of your choice accepts Coke Rewards. The school I support does along with Boxtops for Education. Our kids need their education!
