Buy only what you really NEED. Declutter!
Having less is very freeing. Less can be more.
Notice on vacation, we seem to get by with less stuff. You see what you really can live on. Update yes, but, one in one out. Help others by donating your clothes.
REMEMBER TO LIVE!
Learning to LIVE LIFE thru weight loss is often difficult. Focusing on the GOAL, you forget to have fun DURING the process. Savor this life as you would savor a good meal. You can't get this day back. So ENJOY EACH DAY!
Eat at Home! Make your own meals!
Making your own food at home most of the time...
get together with friends? cook together, saves money, healthier for you... you'll be surprised how much extra money you'll save after only a month! Now imagine the savings in a year!
Make your own Coffee/Tea at home!
Just think, for the $2 cup of coffee/tea every day, you can buy a box of tea or can of coffee... Make your own, you can have many more cups instead of just one!
Love yourself Now! This MOMENT! Every MOMENT!
Love yourself NOW!!! at every SIZE, every AGE, every MOMENT in your life!
Don't let your weight control how you feel about yourself!
Life is too short, if you wait for a certain date, size, age, etc, you will miss out on a lot of living!
Savour the Taste! Use Mini Spoons/Forks!
I use mini spoons and forks to eat foods such as pudding cup, cottage cheese, yogurt... Company enjoy using dessert spoons too! 1/2 cup serving size seems to last longer.
Wear your "Good Clothes"
Enjoy your "Good Clothes" now!
why save feeling great for a special occasion?
Get rid of unflattering clothes.
