When I started my weight loss journey I made a check list for each day. There were 3 manageable items on the checklist. 1. Drink 64 oz. of water 2. eat at least 100 cal in the am. 3. walk 10,000 steps a day. Pretty soon these became second nature and I slowly added more items to my checklist.

I print out 10-12 copies at a time & post one on the refrigerator to use as a grocery list, checking the things I need. ...(click title for more)
