Family Dinners

I eat air popped popcorn BEFORE going to a family dinner or any kind of large dinner where I will be tempted with lots of food. By the time I get there, I am already feeling full and so, don't overeat.

Morning Exercise

emoticon I find that getting my exercise done the first thing in the morning gets my day off to a good start. If I put it off, everything seems to be behind schedule and I am upset with myself. Being a morning person may be why this works for me.

Holler for Help

When I need a boost, a kick or a hug, I log on to Spark people and holler for help! There's always a Spark friend, a team member, or sometimes a complete stranger (if there is such a thing on SP) online to offer a word of encouragement.

My Secret to Success Is....

Never giving up. Even after 6 months of not "dieting", I came back, got back on the wagon and am nearly finished with my weight loss now. I have lost 190 lbs. and have 90 to go to make my goal. Even if you have a bad day, week, month, whatever....NEVER GIVE UP!!!

Listen to that Music!

Many times I don't feel like getting myself going for my exercise routine (especially after work) but I discovered that if I put on some Movin music that usually gets me going and before I know it...I'm exercising and I find that I actually want to. A good beat and a cool tune does it all the time!

consistency

I am a creature of HABIT. Thus, where some find it boring and mundane, I find it comforting to find a meal that works for me,(keeps me full, healthy, etc) & I stick with that every day! At least 5 days a week.

Freezing Foods

When I make soups and spaghetti sauce and Chili I make extra and freeze them in freezer bags. After they are frozen you can stand them up or leave them lying down. I also do this with fruit when it is on sale. I can have fruit year round. emoticon

Paying Myself First

I "pay" myself at the beginning of each month before anything else gets paid. This amount goes into a savings acct. I also take advantage of my banks Xmas club accts. There's something about having that "payment book" that makes it harder to not save.
