Knowledge

By finding out and learning as much as you can about weight loss in general, and nutrition and exercise specifically, you grow to understand the journey you are on and you understand the problems that arise and how to do something about them.

Are We There Yet???

Don't continually look how far you still have to go in your journey to health. Remember to look back to remind yourself just how far you've come!! You may not be where you want to be yet, but you certainly aren't where you used to be!! And that's progress!

Curb Eating at Night

Try experimenting with not eating after 7:30pm or so! It's a challenge for me to get dinner in my belly that early but I believe it's well worth it. I drink water after then though. I think eating late is hard on my metabolism.

Another benefit is that I wake up hungry and that encourages me to eat a good breakfast!

NEVER GIVE UP

Never give up, even on a bad day, just keep pushing to do your best. You can change, and you will change for the better if your head is held up high. Remember "You Can Do It"

Avoid "diet" beverages

I avoid artificial sweeteners, especially "diet" soda or other "diet" beverages. I find they just trigger a craving for sugar. They don't satisfy my thirst and I want to drink more and eat more. I try to stick to black coffee, plain tea, and water with a lemon or lime.

Gratitude

Every morning I wake up and say "thank you" and think of all the positive things in my life, even if it is just simply waking up and being thankful that I can make a cup of coffee. It has made me feel really good no matter what is going on in my life :)

People WANT you to succeed

I get down sometimes when people try and deliberately sabotage my efforts. However, there are so many more people who watch without saying anything. The quiet group is wanting motivation and wants me to succeed.

Don't Be Afraid to Enter Everything

Enter everything you eat honestly and fully. Don't be afraid to see how many calories you ate or how many grams of fat there were when you make a not-great food choice. Many times, I'm pleasantly surprised to see that what I ate wasn't really that bad and that I'm still on track. Often one poor food choice isn't as devastating as you might think - and knowing you have been honest with yourself makes staying positive and on program much easier!
