Take it one meal at a time

We all have those time when the unexpected comes up and we didn't properly plan ahead. Often time we feel like we blew it. However, that isn't the case. One meal will not destroy everything you have been working hard for. Go into the next meal the way you normally would.

MOTIVATION IN YOUR FOOD JOUNAL

Note your good choices like "I did not eat all of my lunch, which I always do." or "I ate this and not that" or " I passed on the dounut when asked.". Give yourself positive feed back. Make it a game, see what you can do each day.

Pictures are a Great Motivator!

Take pictures of yourself along your weight loss journey. You'll be able to see the little changes week by week or month by month and you will be so proud of yourself.

Stop Being a Picker!

Learn to drink your water and eat the greens! Don't say things like you don't like them and avoid them all. There are sooo many types of vegetables in this world, dont tell me you've tried them all and hate them all? Learn to accept them! Then be rewarded with health!

Short Term Goals

Setting short term goals lets you celebrate your journey each step of the way. Each time you reach a goal....set another one. This will motivated you to push yourself a little more each time to ultimately reach your final goal successfully.

Make it apart of your everyday life.

I am learning to make exercise a normal part of my day, the same as taking a bath, brushing my teeth, and eating dinner. It shouldn't be something that you pencil into your day, just so you can have the option to erase it later.

Eat Breakfast!

Don't skip breakfast! But make it healthy--oatmeal, fresh fruit, non fat milk, egg white omelet, whole grain toast. It starts you out with the fuel you need to get through the morning and to be more active.
