I belong to my grocery store's rewards program. I have saved 30.00 sometimes on groceries. You get points for spending so much ($50) and you get 100 pts. every 50.00.
I use the I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Spray. It tastes just like butter but adds no calories. I've been trying to cut out margerine altogether so I use that for just spraying on veggies or even toast. Not so good for cooking.
If you have a hard time drinking water, I have a 70-oz water jug that I got at Dollar Tree for, of course, $1. Instead of just plain water, I add two of the stick packs instead of 4 required for the amount of water. It is sweet enough and has no calories or sugar.
You can eat as much as you want because it's all vegetables. It is very filling too.
Using Spark People and blogging every day keeps me motivated when I get the support I need.
If you're like me, I can't walk when it's hot. If I can get out there at 7:30 in the morning, I do better since it's still cool.
I just ordered me a Susan J. Komen Debit card from my bank. Every time I use that my bank will donate a percentage to fighting Breast Cancer.
I'm addicted to the computer. Lately, I'm forming the habit of doing laundry or dishes before I get on the computer and then I don't feel so lazy!
The way I stay motivated is that I don't give in to discouragement when I don't lose anything! At least I didn't gain!
