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.

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

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.
