The yo-yo in me

Up and down and back again!! I found i was trying to hard to succeed and sabotaging my efforts. I had to learn patience with myself and with my weight lost. It was not easy. I am almost there. (almost).

How to drink more Water!

I have found that I loose more weight when I drink more water throughout the day. One of my secrets is to keep a water bottle by me at all times. Every time I get up from my desk, I take a drink. Every time I change the channel, I take a drink, and so on. I can drink double the water doing this!

Taking it slowly!!!

I started my journey in Jan 2010. However my journey started before that when I was eating out of control. So, the way I am looking at my weight loss journey is that I didn't put the weight on over 2-3 months it was over several years. So, if it takes me several years to lose 43lbs I'm ok with that.

Crystal Light

The Crystal-Light-to-Go packets are so convenient and for those of us who really HATE plain water they make it so easy to get our daily hydration.

measuring.

1/2 tbls of peanut butter tastes just as good as a shole one. however, 1/2 the calories. Never thought I'd say that emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Body Fat

To me it is the loss of body fat that is important. That and inches. If I weigh 175 lbs and I fit into my 32 inch waist pants comfortably, I am a happy camper. I have to remember that muscle weighs more than fat, it is not to me the weight, rather where it is on my body and how my clothes fit.

Don't Clean Your Plate

Always leave some food on your plate - even if only 1 bite. It will help you un-learn that you need to clean your plate - like your mother always told you to !!

calories burned vs. calories consumed

It is all about burning those consumed calories to lose weight. I eat a lot of calories but I also burn a lot and have lost 16 lbs. in 2 months and I can hardly believe it.

Taking it one day at a time

I look at the weight loss journey that I am going through and realize that I am going to take it day by day cause we can all have our bad days and we all have our good days. By taking it day by day I find it's easier to change my habits my slowly than to stop "cold turkey".

Rest is so important

I've found that 7.5 or 8 hours of sleep are a must. If I don't get the rest I need, I drag through the day. I have to force myself to exercise and have a desire to eat lots of unhealthy food. If I get the sleep I need, then exercise is easy and the food temptations are don't bother me as much.
