Make it a FUN Journey

Think of your weight loss or fitness journey like other journeys that you enjoy! If you like roadtrips, think of it as a trip to a place you enjoy and milestones along the way; or if you like quilting, think of it as a large complex quilt and take stitch by stitch, etc.

Overeaters Anonymous

Through the 12-Step program of OA, I learned that I had a disease, and that will-power and self-esteem did not help me stop eating compulsively. Through working this program and defining my own meal plan, I have lost weight, but more important regained my emotional and spiritual balance.

Slip on sneekers instead of house shoes in the morning

Instead of putting house shoes and a robe beside your bed try replacing them with sneakers and workout clothes. If you place the shoes just right you can step on them as you get out of bed for an early reminder to workout.

Get An Accountibility Buddy

For those of us who need extra help getting and staying on track, find an accountability buddy. Find someone you trust and have them make sure you follow through with fitness and weight loss goals and commitments. I chose a trainer, but if you can find a SparkPeople buddy in your area, do it!

Check It Off

Each time you get frustrated, place a checkmark on your arm (wrist/forearm) or someplace hidden. At the end of the day if you can still remember what you were angry about write it down or tell someone close to you. If not think was it worth getting angry/upset over?

Yes you can have Ice Cream!

Invest in some kids cones - they are TINY only about 5 calories per cone. You can only fit about 1 -2 tbls of ice cream, which is about 1/4 of a normal serving. You can have two of these "cones" be completely satisfied and have had under 200 calories! Depending on your ice cream - under 100!

Remember to use Sunscreen

Remember to use sunscreen even if the day is overcast. You can still get sunburn from those harder rays getting through. I leave the sunscreen by my Mp3 player so that I will not forget when I am ready to take my walk for the day.

Use The Spark Scale!

I love my Spark Scale for weighing foods. Since one of my big problems is portion control, the scale helps me regulate the amount I eat. It is my favorite Spark Item.
