Be Open to Change

The definition of crazy ... doing the same thing over and over BUT expecting a different out come.

I have spent the last 20ish years over weight. During this time ... I feel like I "dieted" my way up to being twice my size. I have done most every "diet" you can think of with different levels ...

I do not need to be perfect to be successful!

So many times when I would start a plan to get healthier, my perfectionism would tear me down right away before I got very far or even got started.

Jessica Smith Fitness DVDs and free YouTube videos

I get up at 5:15 a.m. Monday thru Friday to exercise for up to 30 minutes before I go to work. I own several Jessica Smith fitness DVDs. I also occasionally do one of her free YouTube workouts.

Love your body! The body you have now, could be someone elses goal!

There are people who would love to be under 300lbs, 250, 200 etc. Before putting yourself down for not being where you want to be, remember there is someone struggling to get where you are now. Stay positive and learn to love every stage, and plateau.

Treat It Like A Job

When I asked a young woman who had lost 200 pounds how she did it, she said that she treated weight loss like a job. No matter how she felt, she showed up. She showed up at the grocery store to buy the right food, she showed up to track her food, she showed up to walk, etc.

It's 6 years later...

... and I'm down 33 lbs. and within 9 lbs. of my goal. It's been an up and down journey, but I'm still here and determined to reach goal this year.

The biggest thing I've learned is that unless I exercise regularly, I will not keep off the weight. I have free weights, a medicine ball, kett...
