Once you lose the weight...

I've lost weight before,but wound up putting it all back on & more. That's what you hear over and over again from people trying to lose weight. I've done it myself, but keeping it off after I lose it, well that's another story. The biggest "secret" to keeping the weight off, is don't go back to the way you were eating before. You WILL gain it back! Weightloss & healthy eating is a lifestyle change. You can still have "goodies" on occasion, just be mindful & don't slip into your old routine.

Get to work 30 minutes early and go for a morning walk

I am not a morning person -- no way can I get out of bed to the gym. BUT, if I get up a little earlier and drive to work early, park the car and THEN go for a 20-30 minute walk in the morning before work, I miss the worst of the rush hour traffic and get 30 minutes of walking in before the day starts. That works for me!

Make It Your Own

Don't do anything just because someone told you that you "should." Instead, find out what works for YOU and stick with it. So what if your best friend can't eat carbs? Maybe you need them in your diet to be happy and healthy. So what if that doctor on TV said you shouldn't eat after 7 PM? Maybe you work the late shift and that doesn't work for you. So what if six small meals doesn't satisfy you as much as four larger meals? This is your life, your body and your journey. Make it your own!

Reward Yourself

I like to reward myself with anything other than food. I do not want to connect the two (reward and food) since the problem I am trying to fix is my eating habits and food addiction.

Breaking a Plateau

As you go along you will hit a plateau and just know it's going to happen. I stayed with one 3 weeks and it does end. Perservance. In James it talks about the joy you get from perservering.

Don't Wait

If you have a slip-up, and we all do, don't wait for tomorrow or next week, you can get back on-track with the next thing you decide to eat.

Dice it up

I dice up a few onions and green pepper and put them in the fridge for the week. So when I make omelets, hot sandwiches, scrambled eggs or the other many things I like them in. I am more likely to use them because they are ready to use. I figure I add in about 2-3 servings of veggie a week that I would have skipped out on.

Easy Lunch Veggies

When packing up my dinner protein left overs (chicken breast, fish, etc.) I place them in a small, sealable, glass container along with raw veggies. When I heat it up for lunch at work the next day, the veggies steam from the chicken (or whatever) moisture and are done perfectly! No mushy left-overs from the night before!
