Secrets of Success

Think Small



If you don't wanna get what you've always got, do something different! For me, it involved thinking small.
* Use smaller plates and bowls.

* Get smaller clothes.

* Order smaller portions in restaurants.

* Exercise in small bursts throughout the day.

* Small rewards for small victories!

Setting small goals and celebrating them has made a huge transformation in my life. And shaking my head no when restaurants ask me if I want a large has helped in more ways than one. If I don't want to be LARGE, don't eat large. Now I just smile sweetly and say: ""No thanks, I'm a small !"
