I grab my fat

When I want to eat something I don't need, usually a Snickers, I grab my belly fat. I reminds me that I already have a Snickers in storage.

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.

Paper Clip Chain

I keep a chain of paper clips next to my computer monitor at work. Each paper clip represents one pound lost. They are always front and center to help keep me motivated. I remember to say "No thank you" to the office doughnuts.

Healthy options means making healthy choices

My downfall is potato chips, crackers and chocolate. I love these! Of course, the sugar and salt don't contribute to healthy eating. The other day, I bought some "baked" potato chips that were low in fat. As I sat eating them, I read the label. Yuck - that was enough to say no to even this supposedly healthy option. My secret - don't buy them and bring them in my house to tempt me. Making healthy choices means having healthy options.

Figure out what you are hungry for - it might not be food

Hunger isn't necessarily for food!

When I am tired, I am hungry for sleep.
When I am thirsty, I am hungry for liquids.
When I am feeling down, I'm hungry for support.
When I am feeling lonely, I'm hungry for people.

Don't eat food when you need friends, or fluids, or sleep!!! Recognize what your hunger actually is for, and satisfy it with what it is craving.

Ice cream rarely gives you extra sleep, quenches your thirst, or gives you a hug!

Dealing with stress

When I need to deal with stress whether is it from work, anger, whatever, I turn to music. Playing my keyboard always works for me.

Eat Mindfully

Eat consciously and calmly, focusing on the flavours and textures of the food. With an attitude of gratitude and appreciation slowly savour every mouthful emoticon

TV and Walking

OK, I admit it. I watch way too much TV. Do you? I have found some nice walking videos on the Internet...simple, but moving. So while I watch TV I also walk a mile or two with Leslie Sansone. If you like Jane Fonda, you can walk with her instead. Keep moving.
