Holler for Help

When I need a boost, a kick or a hug, I log on to Spark people and holler for help! There's always a Spark friend, a team member, or sometimes a complete stranger (if there is such a thing on SP) online to offer a word of encouragement.

My Secret to Success Is....

Never giving up. Even after 6 months of not "dieting", I came back, got back on the wagon and am nearly finished with my weight loss now. I have lost 190 lbs. and have 90 to go to make my goal. Even if you have a bad day, week, month, whatever....NEVER GIVE UP!!!

Listen to that Music!

Many times I don't feel like getting myself going for my exercise routine (especially after work) but I discovered that if I put on some Movin music that usually gets me going and before I know it...I'm exercising and I find that I actually want to. A good beat and a cool tune does it all the time!

consistency

I am a creature of HABIT. Thus, where some find it boring and mundane, I find it comforting to find a meal that works for me,(keeps me full, healthy, etc) & I stick with that every day! At least 5 days a week.

Freezing Foods

When I make soups and spaghetti sauce and Chili I make extra and freeze them in freezer bags. After they are frozen you can stand them up or leave them lying down. I also do this with fruit when it is on sale. I can have fruit year round. emoticon

Paying Myself First

I "pay" myself at the beginning of each month before anything else gets paid. This amount goes into a savings acct. I also take advantage of my banks Xmas club accts. There's something about having that "payment book" that makes it harder to not save.

Don't Be Afraid to Eat

When I first started maintenance there were many foods I had avoided for months. A good SparkFriend who had lost over 100 pounds said, "There is nothing you can eat today that means you'll wake up fat tomorrow." When you continue to track your food, nothing is off limits.
