The tried-and-true habits that have helped you lose weight the right way.
I don't always find time for a defined workout, but I do a lot of gardening, so I try to make that into a mini workout, I do a lot of bending and lifting and stretching and try to maximize those movements to get a benefit. If one works at it you can really work up a sweat!
Sometimes it is hard to drink 8 glasses or more of water a day. What helped me is the New Ocean Spray mixes you add into your water, they have 5 calories but I only add them twice a day. I love the Blueberry Lemonade and the Cran-Pomegranate. Plus so much better then my old diet soda habit.
I only fill up my water bottle 8 oz at a time. When it's time to refill, I go to the water tap that's farthest from my desk at work. It's an easy way to add to your total step count for the day!
Would you like to track points. On your Start Page, using the Quick Track Option, you can create a custom goal.

How Often, select 1x per Day
We often view our weightloss success by the reading on the scale. We need to remember that weightloss is not to be our ultimate goal, but the end result of a healthy lifestyle. Weightloss will come once we begin developing healthier habits.
I planned ahead for the week and tried to stay on track. On Friday i went out with the girls and consumed alcohol and a few high calorie snacks. Needless to say when i weighed myself on Sunday i had lost 3 pounds.
So don't beat up yourself when you have strayed a little.
Often when I can't stay away from snack foods, I stop and think and realize it's time to eat and fix a real meal which takes my desire for junk food away
I definitely lose more weight per week, when I add
two tablespoons of medium salsa to all of my my meals !
I weigh myself twice a week; just once on Monday after a weekend of indulgences (consequences and truth) then again on Saturday morning after a week of discipline (reward) -sometimes).
