Power of the Streak

Keeps me focused, the little things add up. Each day I make my bed, take my vitamins, have my water and aim for a minimum of10 minutes of fitness. These tasks are small but they are the foundation of my healthier lifestyle. I'm taking time to do things for me, to help my life.

Each day is another opportunity

It doesn't matter if I mess up one day by not getting my correct activity in or if I eat something that is laden with calories, I can get right back with my plan. A slip-up doesn't mean that I have "blown it" and I can learn something from whatever did/ didn't happen. emoticon

Dont set unrealistic timelines

You dont go into a hospital saying that I will be healed of this disease by next week. All the they can do is remove the problem and create the environment for healing to begin. thats all we can do. remove the problem and create the environment through nutrition and exercise. be patient.

Supportive family

Having a cheering section at home. Every time I lose a pound they get more excited than I do.

I hate to exercise!

And because I do, I've found that measuring the pleasure value of something tempting against the pain value of the time it will take to work it off on the treadmill or recumbent bike (as in, "Is this really WORTH half an hour on the treadmill?") really helps me say no to most no-nos. emoticon emoticon

Rejoice in the progress

Some days we just need to congratulate ourselves on how far we've come. there aren't a lot of outward signs of our diet yet. we aren't even close to where we hope to be. we still have a long way to go. That's okay. we need to rejoice in the progress we've made

Staying on Track

We all know our big goal. To get there, I think it's imperative to have a series of small, reachable goals that we can hit at least once a month. Make them specific but not 'hard'. Ex: work out every day - hard; effective work out 3 times this week - easy. 2# this week-hard. 5# this month-easy

Know what's motivating you

After the initial excitement wears off, the commitment kicks in. To stay the course, you have to know WHY you want to lose weight. Is to go off meds? Wear "skinny" jeans? Play with your kids? Whatever your reason, make it YOUR own. Write it down and put it somewhere you can see it.
