Get at least 7-8 hours of sleep to drop the weight
I didn't realize that I was hindering my own success by not getting enough rest. At first I thought, "Hmmm, maybe I should drink more water." The weight came off slowly, but when I actually started going to bed at a decent hour the weight dropped off with the quickness!!!!
I am lucky enough to live close enough to work that I can go home for lunch every day. Since I sit at a computer most of my day at work, I use my lunch hour to be active. I usually eat something very simple to make and then use the rest of my hour to pick up the house, load/unload the dishwasher, make the bed, etc and sometimes even get some strength training done. Getting this done during lunch also means more time for fun things after work!
