Don't Go Back to the Diet Mentality

If I slip, I say so...and treat it as a step back and a chance to step forward again, twice. This way, I as quick as possible shut down the "shame attack" in my heard and turn on the "willingness glow" in me that I must remember each day.

Be like the caveman and cave women

Think Basic when eating and choosing foods. Cavemen did not have cookies, cakes, pasta, sugar or soda. They ate fruit, grains, vegtables, meat and drank water.

Recite your goal every day

I keep my eyes on the prize! Every day I tell someone that by the end of the year I am going to weigh 125 lbs. It is a realistic goal and it keeps me focus on the end product. It's worth it to me to obtain that goal.

Reward yourself

I find it a little easier to lose weight to set a goal like losing 5 lbs, then I will reward myself, not with food. I'll buy a dvd or cd I wanted. When I lose more I will reward myself with new clothes.

Dining Out

When ordering a salad, instead of pouring the dressing over the salad, I dip the salad in the dressing. This saves calories especially if you're a Ranch dressing fan!!!

Out of Sight, Out of Mind

If I leave things like pretzels, breakfast cereal, or any other snack stuff out where I can see it later, I usually end up snacking on it several times throughout the day. If I put it away quickly, I don't.
