faceing your giants

I noticed in the past I would avoid mirrors, hated the way I looked and was ashamed of how I looked so I never walked past a mirror if I could help it & if I had to I just wouldn't face that way so I couldn't see myself as the fat person I truly was.

Like Yourself... Better Yet, Love Yourself

When I read blogs and profiles, it really bothers me when people says such horrible things about themselves. STOP IT! Never say anything to yourself that you wouldn't say to a friend. Even if I still weighed 268 or if I gained another 200 pounds, I would still be a good person.

Love your body!

You and your body are not enemies! Your body is your friend who needs your help. And don't forget to reward it after tough exercises: go to the spa or beauty salon, buy lotion for body, face cream, or just new shower gel with tasty flavour, and your body will be grateful

Action Movie: daylight

whenever I need motivation I think of the movie Daylight. A tunnel collapses and the survivors must fight to survive. Do you really want to be the fat chic that dies in the beginning cause she couldn't pull herself to safety??

Plan ahead

Sit down and plan out tomorrow the night before. Go ahead and track what you are going to eat and what exercise you will do. for some reason, once it is written, I have to do it.

resisting the temptation to eat unhealthy snacks

I am most tempted to eat something that is not good for me, when I am really hungry--especially when I come home after a long day at school, and dinner is a few hours away. I keep a bowl of hard-boiled eggs in the fridge--a quick, protein-rich snack that stave off the hunger pangs till dinner!

Dress for (exercise) success

On the days when I plan to exercise first thing in the morning, I dress in my exercise clothes as soon as I get up instead of hanging out in my PJ's

Bananas Going Bad?

Peel the bananas and put them into a freezer bag and freeze. They are great for smoothies and they don't go to waste.

Portion Control

I have a real challenge with portion control. I now check the package for the portion size, measure out the portions, place in zip lock baggies and put them back in the original box. Works really well with cereal & snacks.
