Stop with the "I Can't" - Hold yourself accountable

When you catch yourself saying I can't exercise, or I can't pass up a chocolate doughnut, change it up to "I Won't." By saying "I won't" do something instead of "I can't" forces you to hold yourself accountable! "I can't" gives you an excuse; "I won't" says I am responsible for my own actions.

Expect plateaus...and stay strong throughout!!

We all will hit plateaus in our journey to lose weight. The secret is to expect them, and simply be stronger during those days when the scale seems like the frozen fish it has become. Keep exercising, keep drinking your water, and keep sparking your food intake.

Be in the moment!

The past is memories and the future is unwritten. The only thing you can change is the present. Be in the moment and make the future you want!

Staying Focused

We all get frustrated and sometimes lose focus. When you feel that start to happen, reach out and ask for support. There's nothing wrong with asking for a little help.

What I do when the sweet tooth hits

When I get a desire for something sweet, I have a Xylitol Mint (either Cool Fruit or Cool Mint), by Zellies (250 for about 10 dollars), and be satisfied at just two calories. PLUS the xylitol balances mouth acidity and dentists are recommending using it because it's so good for teeth.

surroundings

Surrounding ourselves with positive supportive people on the same journey keeps motivation up, keeps us determined, and keeps us accountable. This is the secret to all successes.
