Let go and let God

I remind myself to let go and let God every morning as I get up, and it comes to my mind when something happens that is not positive. I also claim the scripture that all things work together for the good to those who love the Lord and are called according to his purpose. Put that with prayer!

Motivation to get out and moving

I don't view my bi-weekly walks and bike rides as 'exercise' - instead, I look at them as opportunities to catch up w/a friend, get the dogs outside, explore the world outside, smell the salt air... if I treated my rides as exercise, for example, I suspect I'd never get on the bike :)

track as OFTEN as possible

If i've overdone it for lunch, then I know to defrost a chicken breast and veggies for dinner! knowledge is power and keeps you accountable. if I know I'm not going to be near a computer, I'll bring a small piece of paper in my pocket and and add up my carbs, protein, etc, and calories on the go.

Water

Buy you a mug and take it with you!!! Bottle water is so expensive! Sodas and other drinks at convience stores or not good for you and they are expensive also. Buy a Bubba Keg, fill it with ice and out he door you go!!

Don't always say NO!

I find that when I continue to say no to a certain food that I always end up over eating that food eventually.
So what I do is say yes but I keep it in check. If I am craving chocolate I have a mini candy bar. If I want ice cream I have a 1/2 cut and I measure it.

Exercising at lunch really makes a difference!

I joined the gym at work and instead of spending my lunch hour sitting at my desk reading or catching up on e-mail, I work-out! It gets me through the afternoon slump, keeps me productive, and helps me resist a sweet afternoon snack.

I chop my salad and veggies in the morning. I have fruit ready when i need something sweet..but I have lost more weight when I have mini meals...5-6 small meals work..sometimes I make a big salad for lunch and finish it for dinner... keep all junk food out of your house especially if you have kids

Part of the uniqueness of Sparkpeople is the fact that everyone is there to support one another. If you weigh more than 100 pounds than you should no one cares. They are there to support you and care about you even when you have a bad week or whatever. This is such a great group of people.
