The past doesn't determine the future

This thought is the key for me getting back up and trying again. It's so easy to feel like I've failed, I'm a failure, and I'll never be able to keep up good work, but it's not true. Just because I've had a bad day, week, month... doesn't mean today or tomorrow will be bad, too.

NEVER say DIET

If you look at this as a DIET, it's easy to find yourself failing because our weight will fluctuate (sometimes daily). I've chosen to live a healthy lifestyle--therefore each choice I make is about what's good for me. If one choice wasn't so good, that's okay because the next choice will be!

Take it one meal at a time

We all have those time when the unexpected comes up and we didn't properly plan ahead. Often time we feel like we blew it. However, that isn't the case. One meal will not destroy everything you have been working hard for. Go into the next meal the way you normally would.

I know that once you take the first step to getting back on track the other steps are easier to take no matter how many steps you must take......... emoticon

One thing at a time

When I have fallen off the wagon, I just focus on one thing for a week--whether it's drinking my water, doing my cardio or measuring my portions. If I can just do this one thing for one week, I've had a successful week! Then the next week I'm motivated by my success to add another area of focus

Get Rid of Temptation

Carbs are my downfall. If I eat them, I crave them more, and it's a vicious cycle. I gained 6 pounds in 5 weeks, so I got rid of my little "carb-y" snacks, and made sure that I had high protein snacks and fat-free, sugar-free treats to replace them (Jell-o - you're my hero!).

placing feet on path

I am taking one day at a time. Enter everything I eat and drink...right now I am on day four...four successful days on this path. A few slips, but those I see as opportunities to learn...truly, the slips were around stuff I didn't know!

Changing Mind Set

I had to work on my mind and reset it. Before I had the mind set that I needed to eat, I had to eat, I was obsessed with food and planned what I would eat the night before and where I would be stopping to eat. I gained alot of weight this way. emoticon

3 PM Hunger

Every day at 3 pm, I feel hungry. Some days I save a part of my lunch and other days I eat whatever I can get my hands on. A few weeks ago I discovered that a green apple and a bottle of water is just as satisfying.
