Spark people make me brave

I have always talked bad about how fat I was or am. But I always made it a joke and even laughed when others made a joke about it. But now I have more tools to my benefit so I can now speak of how it really does hurt instead of laughing along with others.

One Hour at a Time

I just keep telling myself "one hour at a time" to get through difficult days - to remind myself that each hour I stay strong is an hour closer to my goals.

Delete, delete, delete

I found that I would order things I didn't need by getting a "really good" coupon in my email from a site I used in the past. Delete those "great offer" coupons from your email unless you already had planned a purchase from that vendor.

Night and Day

emoticon Remember, to lay things to rest at night--not just yourself, physically; but lay to rest those things of stress, strain, and temporary failure. In the morning, just as your body is refreshed; so should your life. Start anew, and plan a new day--a new life.

Use Spark Recipes and Recipe Builder!

The great thing about Sparks is the recipe buider! I have entered all my favorite dishes and know exactly the number of calories,fat,fiber and sodium content of each dish...you can make changes according to the recipe to reduce calories and make it a healthy meal and then add it to your favorites!

Don't open the Cupboard or Refrigerator

Don't open the Cupboard or Refrigerator until you've decided what you want. i.e. plan your snack before you look at the selections.
Then, your snack won't become a graze! emoticon

Know what's motivating you

After the initial excitement wears off, the commitment kicks in. To stay the course, you have to know WHY you want to lose weight. Is to go off meds? Wear "skinny" jeans? Play with your kids? Whatever your reason, make it YOUR own. Write it down and put it somewhere you can see it.
