Go to bed hungry

In the past I ate for many reasons - not just because I was hungry. I find that "counting calories" reminds me that when I get that hunger pain at 10 PM I should just go to sleep instead of pouring myself a bowl of cold cereal. I'm learning to appreciate the feeling of hunger.

Track your spending to loose weight

To really keep me in check I track my debit and credit card purchases. Just about every bank has online banking these days so it's pretty easy to see what your bad habits are, how much it's hurting your wallet and your health.

Water and Flabby Skin

Wage war on flabby skin! Drink plenty of water, get plenty of rest, aim for 1 or 2 pounds of weight loss per week at the most, don't smoke (it wreaks havoc on skin cells), and eat healthy. ALL These things combined make for a healthier you, anyway, but its also good for your skin!

Water at the Stop Lights

When I am in the car I drink water (a 5 count) at every red light. Also I make myself drink 16 oz before I can have that morning coffee - great way to get it into you fast in the morning & start the day off with a full feeling

Water, Water Everywhere!

Drinking enough water has always been a challenge for me. So, now I give myself an incentive. My daily rule is no diet soda, tea or flavored beverage until after I have my 64 ozs of water for the day. After I have consumed my 64 ozs of water, I can have any non-caloried beverage I want.

8 glasses of Water.......EAS
Y!

Carry around a 32 oz water bottle... Like the Nalgene BPA free ones. You know you have to drink 2 of these before you go to bed to reach 8 glasses. I bring it on a walk, to the gym, in the car, shopping.... before the day is done I usualy have had 3 bottles full!

Refill Right Away!

Never let the water glass sit empty. I find that If I have my water or unsweetened green tea glass sitting around me I naturally keep drinking. As soon as it's empty, even if you don't feel thirsty that moment, refill it. You'll get those 8 glasses in before you know it!
