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.

Find a buddy

Finding a buddy who is going through some of the same struggles you are can be of benefit. If you are having trouble keeping up with exercise, check in with a friend who will help keep you accountable. Or better yet, find someone with whom you can exercise.

Chunk it Up -- 10 min

When you need to get back on track with fitness, don't let it overwhelm you. Use the SparkPeople 10 minute videos. 10 min is easy to squeeze in and you're able to positively focus on what you accomplished.

Be Proactive instead of Reactive

Instead of reacting to what happened, take charge beforehand. People make mistakes or slip up; it's not the end of the world if you eat cupcakes or don't exercise for a day. Simply blaming fate or giving up is cheating yourself. Plan, do, be, and keep going.

NEVER give up!!!

One of the biggest things that has helped me stick with Spark People for 2+ years now, is that I made a commitment to myself that no matter how successful (or unsuccessful) I felt, and no matter how far I "fell off the wagon", I was NOT going to give up!!

Start again IMMEDIATELY

If you are going somewhere and find yourself traveling in the wrong direction, you do not continue in that direction......as soon as possible, you turn around and get back on the correct road. Try to treat slip-ups like that. Avoid the 'I've already blown it' thinking,

Picture Diary

It's not that hard anymore for me. I just bring out old pics of me weighing in at 545 lbs and look where I'm at now, 297 and remember how it FELT to be such a huge person. That's how it's easy for me to get back on track again !
