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.

Do it for yourself

If you are going to lose weight do it only for yourself. If you want to do it for someone else you're not going to be successful. If someone tells you that you can't or won't take it as a dare & prove them wrong...better yet...prove yourself wrong!

The Power of Positive Thinking

Keep a positive attitude, have positive self-talk (support yourself like you would others), and make your goals positive (not "Don't do this" or "Stop that).

“Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you'll start having positive results.” -Willie Nelson

Carry a *Durable* Snack At All Times

Carrying a healthy snack is a great idea, but make sure it's durable! That banana you stuck in your purse this morning will not help you avoid the candy bar after lunch if it is disgusting mush; the granola bar will not help you avoid the drive-thru if it is crumbs from its ride in your backpack!

Reduce the salt to lose and look beautiful

Try reducing your sodium/salt intake to less than 1000mg per day for 7-10 days. You'll notice a jump in weight loss which is mainly water but the scale doesn't fluctuate and the puffiness in your face and limbs goes away!

Mental is #1

This journey is 95% mental and 5% exercise and nutrition. Figure out the reasons that you gained weight, work on dealing with emotions/stress, keep finding new ways to stay motivated, and take care of YOU!

Shop the perimeter of the store

Here you'll find healthier options: vegetables, fruits, meats, diary products, and bread. Eating less processed foods is healthier, saves calories, and has more nutritional value. Plus you'll avoid temptation by sticking to the outside.
