If you're serious about losing weight, you'll be sure to incorporate healthy habits no matter where you are. I choose to make my office job the epicentre for losing weight. I have a large water bottle that I fill in the morning and again at lunch (=6 glasses of water), I have my vitamins and supplements on my desk to remind myself to take them, I have a chain of paperclips to visually remind myself of my goals (1 clip=1 lb and clips are removed from the chain).
For as much time as you spend at work, it is important to do what you can to make that environment weight loss friendly. If it's birthday time at the office either skip the cake and just sing a song or find a buddy who will share a small piece with you.

Organizing a home or office drawer is quite simple. Buy some mini 4 x 4 baskets at a Dollar Store, Wallmart or any other department store that sells small baskets. Please inside the drawer for paperclips, post-it-notes, pens, business cards, etc. Great for the "junk drawer" at home that seems accumulate all kinds of items. 41

I use my computer a lot. I have trouble remembering passwords so I have an excel program where I put the name of the website, user name and password. If there is a security question and answer I add them as well.
Staying warm prevents me from eating to get warm. In this way, my favorite comfy sweatshirt, cardigan, and even dolphin blanket are essentials for weight management around my house. As winter approaches, make sure you have non-food ways to stay warm. 259
Make sure you have wearable warmth in your car, office, and anywhere you spend sedentary time too, not just at home.
