I'm over forty and I am so afraid of what my body is going to look like after the weight is off am i going to look and feel worse about myself than I do now.
It's all about a bunch of little things--not one big thing. There is not one big solution, but several little ones. Their summation is the "one thing" that can help you find your way.
Ever notice when your tired you "crave" Carbs and sweets? Instead of going to sleep early because your tired, find yourself in the kitchen with these cravings that seem unsatisfiable? GO TO BED! When you force yourself to stay awake your body craves energy which can cause these Carb, sweet cravings...
If you have a sedentary lifestyle, keep moving whenever possible. Fold laundry while watching TV, walk instead of sit while talking on the phone. Even standing burns more calories than sitting!
Get enough sleep each night in order to have energy in the morning to exercise or otherwise stick to your plans. Being overtired makes you vulnerable to the excuses we all make. Being well rested makes you ready to face the day.
I have some pretty jeweled sandals and I display them in a basket, clustered in a decorative way to show off the jewels. I also decided to get another basket in which I arrange my tennis shoes, back side up and I tuck the basket under the clothes. They make my closet very festive and reduce clutter.
I looooooovvvvvee ice cream! However, it is usually full of calories; even the frozen yogurt. Put your favorite kind of yogurt in the freezer, shake it randomly to freeze evenly, but go back before it is completely frozen. Then ENJOY!!
Whenever I find myself thinking about my exercise (ie: running) and I'm tired, I end up talking myself out of it. If I stop my mind chatter and go thru the motions, I get myself out there and am glad for it. The less I think about it, the more I do it.
When at work I have to wear a uniform. So I keep all my money in my wallet in my backback which is in my locker. I'm not tempted to spend on the vending machines. That also saves on calories.
