Creating An Optical Illusion

Eat your dinner on a 9 inch plate instead of the standard 12 inch plate. It makes the smaller portions look bigger and will also help you control the size of your dinner.

end of the day

I save a few calories for a treat at the end of the day. Tonight I had a cup of blackberries with a tbsp of raw sugar and a cup of decaf flavored tea. It satisfied my sweet tooth and the tea was warm and made me relaxed!

no secret really but...

count calories on here in the food tracker, it wakes you up big time as to what you're eating. I was easily eating 2500 or more, and adding in drinks is why I am where I am today. Keep tracking!!! Every taste, drink etc.

Track every movement I do

I do toe touchers, wall pushes, chair lifts, stair steps, just plain moving and find a way to track it on Spark; then I can look at the end of the day and as I log what I have done, I see what I have achieved. The next day I want to do more! It's a good motivation tool for me.

One Small Step

Every day, I try to make one small change from the day before. It could be drinking a little more water or walking a little more or reading one more success story to keep me going. All of those small steps will eventually add up to a whole new lifestyle!
