What to do with leftovers.

Don't throw food away. Enjoy your leftovers tomorrow for lunch or, yes, breakfast. You made it healthy to begin with; it will be healthy all over again.

Stop comparing!

Occasionally I find myself comparing my body and weight loss to others. Rather than getting depressed and giving up, I take a step back and focus on how far I've come. This journey is for me and every step forward is a personal success.

water water water
