Keep an eye on medication levels as you lose weight

I began to feel light-headed and faint sometimes after losing weight although I was eating and exercising in the recommended ranges. In fact, my improved health meant that I was over-medicated and my doctor reduced my prescribed medication to my new weight and metabolism. Great news!!

Remember your water

Since drinking 8 cups of water is so important in losing weight I will fill a 2 liter(8.4 cups) plastic bottle with water in the morning and take it to work or put it in the fridge so I always know where I stand on my water intake. (ex. halfway through the day, I make sure 1/2 of the bottle is gone....

Water does wonders

Drink water, lots of it. Before you start to eat your meal drink some water. Then while you are eating drink more water. It is hard to get off of flavored drinks but once you get use to having water with your meal you will notice how much less calories you are taking it by just drinking water!

DRINK WATER!

Drinking eight glasses of water really helps. Sometimes your body can get thirst and hunger mixed up. When you feel hungry between meals, try drinking water first, wait ten minutes and if you are still hungry, have a healthy snack.

picture this

take the pictrue of your kids out of your wallet and put the very worst picture of you inside. So when you go to pay for that Ice cream cone you can see why not to buy it and get a frozen ice inside.

If you are hungry, drink a glass of cold water. If you are still hungry in 30 minutes, then have a healthy meal or snack.

Keep Measuring Cups and Spoons Handy

Leave a set of measuring cups and spoons in your dish drainer. They'll be a constant reminder of the importance of portion control and accurate tracking.
