Build a salad bar for the fridge's bottom shelf. After grocery shopping, wash and prep all fresh veggies/fruits. Store attractively chopped, sliced & minced ingredients in clear sealed bags, filed in an easy- to- reach storage box with a tight lid, so you can bring it all out at once.
Healthy choices will be at your fingertips, even if you are tired! Use prepped ingredients to make far more than fresh salads. Similarly prepare & freeze thinly-sliced lean meats and servings of rice. You can then prepare fresh soups, stir fries & casseroles in minutes by adding broth or cheeses!

Everyday I prepare for my next day at work, and for the meals I will eat, by making sure that all the foods that are healthy and good (fruits and veggies) are at hand and already prepped. That way when I am packing my lunch I can just grab and go, and I don't get discouraged with lengthy prep time.267
When I am in the kitchen preparing a meal I think ahead to the next meal and ask myself, "will I be eating this at home?" If the answer is no, then I go ahead and prepare the next meal to take with me - this makes it easy to take my lunch or dinner with me, and doesn't add alot to the prep. time. I work shift work, so this is a handy way to keep on track - try it, it's simple and effective!
I am committed. I am determined. I can & I will SUCCEED!!!334
I'm tired of being overweight, been overweight since grade school. I have my mind set on ridding these pounds once and for all. I'll do whatever it takes (healthy wise), however long it takes. I can & I will SUCCEED!!192
