I have made small lifestyle changes that may not be a big deal by itself, but in the long run it adds up! For example, I cut my carb portions in half but still get to enjoy them. I do 7 flights of stairs at work twice a day. I switch to green tea after 2 cups of coffee. I drink lifewater instead of soda for lunch. These may not be huge changes but all together it has helped me lose weight because I am not going from one diet to the next. Baby steps!

I make a list of every single positive step I took to meet my goals every day. Even if it as small as "measured the peanut butter for my sandwich" or as big as " hit all my targets today" I document every positive step. It's easy to miss the small stuff and forget that "yes, I did do something positive today!"224
