My comfort food

One thing I really like that fixes my chocolate cravings is Yoplait Whipped Chocolate Mousse. It has 140 calories and is premeasured so I'm not tempted to cheat. When the weather is hot, I freeze it to use as ice cream. The whipped freezes better than regular yogurt.

Routine

Get into a routine: Same time every day for exercising and set aside as many minutes as you can spare. As little as 10 (maybe 3 x day) or even better 30 minutes.
After 2 weeks, you'll miss it if you don't exercise during that time.

taking that first step

I'm really out of shape, suffer from back problems etc. So it's hard to start working out again. Living in a city, I decided to walk as much as possible, at a good pace. I find myself walking for at least 30 mins every day. It's not the most rigorous workout, but it beats doing nothing.

Shop in your closet

I have a lot of clothes in my closet that I grew out of over the last couple years. Now that I'm losing weight, I tried on all my clothes to determine how tight they are and lined them up in my closet accordingly. Now, as I lose the pounds, I go shopping in my closet -I save both time and money!

Join a CSA!

Community-Supported Agriculture is good for local farmers AND your waistline! By investing in a farm for a season, you, get a weekly share of locally grown fresh - often organic - veggies and fruits (many farms offer beef, poultry, and dairy as well). I've learned to love a huge variety of veggies!

Retrain your brain

To finally be able to lose weight, I had to retrain my brain to stop making stupid excuses. I had to teach my brain how to think thoughts that told me I can do this.

enjoy super foods

I'm trying to eat more superfoods. Sweet Potato, Blueberry, almonds, garlic, and avacado are easy to add into the diet and they taste wonderful. I have been making microwaved baked potato chips with the sweet potato. They are great with curried yog. dressing.
