Diet is a 4 letter word

This isn't a diet, it is a lifestyle change. Nothing is off limits, but you have to use moderation.

Cash only

I found that by using cash only I'm a lot more careful with my spending and have saved quite a bit each week.

Brag about your accomplishments

Tell the world how awesome you are, even if it's for something small. Post it in your status, shout it out in your blog. Give yourself the praise you deserve! Toot your own horn! This will help you focus on the positives rather than focusing on the work remaining to be done.

Want it...Do it...Own it

I believe you have to want it...then go after it and do what you are capable of doing but not over push yourself...then if you do good or bad...own it...you make the success and if one thing gets you down don't stop...just keep going.

LOG YOUR FOOD

I know a lot of people do not want to count calories. I used to be one of them. Using the Nutrition Tracker is essential to learning what you eat and where you need to change.

fitbit

A small clip on or just put it in your pocket. It works like the bodybugg by counting steps, calories and miles. It also tracks your sleep. Had mine for 6 months and love it. There is no monthly fee for the web site like the others

free site

I belong to a free site where I'm all the time getting free products and they ship them free and sometimes you can get them more than once. Its called Shop4freebies. They have a place at the top where you can join and ask for it once a week or everyday etc.

Lengthen Your Perspective

Often, I think that I am not making any progress towards my weight loss goal. Too often, it turns out to be a matter of perspective. If I weigh myself EVERY day and I don't see any results, I often have forgotten to look at my monthly chart of my weight loss. Remember, it wasnt gained overnite!

Fun cardio; GREAT workout!

Follow your kids around on a playground, or park. I have a 5yo son and a 7yo son. Once in a while, for a great workout, we go to a playground, or park, and I follow them around. If they skip, then I skip. If they run, then I run. If they climb something, then I climb, if I can. You will sweat!

Using Your Time EFFICIENTLY on Spark

Spark Friends having to cut way back on Spark Time due to LACK of time. I have learned to utilize the "feed" on each friend's Spark Page to quickly reply with "Like" and "Comment". I can quickly provide several replies and find where I left off on a previous day.
