When you're sleeping, you're not eating!

I've noticed that the times I eat the most are the times I sleep the least, especially when I'm up all night and no one is around to see me or keep me accountable. Getting to sleep on time means you aren't awake to get those cravings for inappropriate snacks, and keeps your calorie count lower!

Use your blog.

Use your blog to keep yourself accountable for everything. When you stumble, write about it. When you have a success, write about it. Being able to look back at your setbacks, successes, and encouragement from others will be invaluable.

Starting Over

Starting over. I re-evaluated from head to toe, including tracking food, exercise, measurements and weight.
"I was doing the same thing over and over expecting to get different results."

Put your workouts in your calendar!

Put all your workouts in your calendar, especially if you have an online calendar which will send you an email reminder. You can even send an email reminder the day before.

Imperfection is Okay

I saw a quote on a Spark Page that helps me. I am perfect at being imperfect. I need to focus on what I can and will do and let go of what I did and can't change.

staying focused on what really works

Well when I started 2008 I lost 26 ounds in 6 months. I did it with the flatbelly diet. I somehow got out of that and tried other plans but this is the only one that works for me. after a 10 pound gain I am down 5 with another 5 to go then set another goal. Hopfully I will reach my 2008 goal of 139.
