My Goals:
--------------
Main Goal
--------------
I will maintain a calm, happy, and aware state of equilibrium. When I get into a different state, I will become aware of it as soon as possible and will consistently choose to access non-food resources rather than using food to change my state.

Resources to choose:
a. exercise
b. friends
c. music
c. time outdoors
d. relaxation
e. play
f. taking care of what needs to get done
g. being grateful
h. do something for someone else
i. meditation
j. mindfulness
k. deep breathing
l. SparkPeople
m. organize something for 10 minutes (ByHisSpirit: thanks for this one!)
n. massage



My Program:
- Plan and track food and exercise every day.
- Stay in daily contact with my diet partner.




Other Information:
For weight loss and maintenance, I'm finding it helpful to be:

o-- persistent
o-- determined
o-- resilient
o-- resourceful
o-- aware
o-- future oriented
o-- deliberate
