Losing weight and changing your life isn't an easy thing to do. Join a Spark Team and make Spark Friends that motivate and encourage you. I've learned to be more active with this and it helps me out more than anything else I am doing.
I have a small journal where I list all my medical appointments, procedures, prescriptions etc. I had a problem remembering things when asked by my doctor like when I had my last Mammogram, Now I just look it up! I also ask and keep track of my blood pressure readings, resting heart rate etc and am able to see progress over time.
Hanging Reminder. Buy a pair of pants that don't fit and hang them up in your closet so you see it everyday and then when you think you can fit in them reward yourself buy wearing those pants and telling the world why your wearing them.
I bought The Salad Chef at Meijer and it is Wonderful! It has all the pieces and cost less than buying it on TV. A perfect salad in minutes. lift the lever, put in the veggie, push down & Whomp! it falls into the bowl in perfect pieces. Put on the storage lid and you have beautiful salad for days.
The FitBit is the best pedometer for the best price. It calculates activity and gives you a readout on the computer. It will even tell you how much you sleep or not sleep. The online stuff is free. I hope someday we can connect the results directly into sparkpeople. Does anyone out there enjoy using it as much as me?
The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Clason is full of financial wisdom! It's a fast read and you can find it free at your local library. I highly recommend this book!
