Starting the Morning Off Positive

The first thing I do every morning when I wake up is take 10 minutes to do some morning yoga, the Sun Salutation poses. It gets me ready and relaxed to start my day.

Snacking while driving

One of my biggest problems I use to have was, when I had to drive for an hour or more, I would snack on nuts or chips etc. to keep me focused or awake. I still munch but now I will get a cup of chipped or crushed ice and chew on that instead. The crunch is satisfying I get water and no calories!

Nightime Eating

If you are like me and get hungry at night here is what I do. I plan out my food in my nutrition tracker and always leave just enough for a night time snack which is a bowl of cheerios. That satisfies a craving if you re really hungry and has no guilt attached because it fits in your tracker.

Set New Goals

My first maintenance goal was to increase exercise to burn 400 calories per day, based on an article about maintaining. After 8 weeks, my reward was a new scale. My current goal is to build muscle and reduce body fat percentage. Also, to reduce sweetener to 4 packets or less per day.

What I've Learned Along the Way

I keep a journal with what I call little insights, those 'aha' moments. It can be about anything from tips I read about keeping the dryer screen clean to something really big like realizing how I use my obesity to keep me from even trying whatever because I'm so afraid to fail.

Food craving solution

Nighttime is the worst for me...I always get hungry. What I have found is if you suck on a piece of hard candy that is chocolate flavored (any flavor would work) the hunger passes and I don't overeat by the time the candy is gone.

Why Hurry?

I lost my first 55 pounds at a rate of 1.5 pounds per week. The last 27 pounds I lost at .5 pounds per week. It all adds up. There are benefits to losing slowly. Your skin is more elastic. You get to eat more and can meet more of your nutritional needs. Won't be as hungry. Slow works, too!

Music

I keep my motion up when doing everyday household stuff by putting on some real moving music and move/dance about the day! It is great for the attitude!
