Why Hurry?

I lost my first 55 pounds at a rate of 1.5 pounds per week. The last 27 pounds I lost at .5 pounds per week. It all adds up. There are benefits to losing slowly. Your skin is more elastic. You get to eat more and can meet more of your nutritional needs. Won't be as hungry. Slow works, too!

The Scale is Your Friend, but...

While I was losing weight it really helped to weigh only once a week, and even then not paying too much attention to that one event. What I focused on was the lowest weight of each month. That numbered captured my continuing progress much more accurately.

Pay Attention to Your Body!!

Pay attention to what your body is saying at all times!! If you learn how your body works then everything is easier!! Pay attention to when your stomach is saying your not really hungry!! You also need to listen to your body about how far to push yourself!!

Visualization

When I was trying to lose weight, i visualized myself standing on a scale showing one pound lesser than my actual weight on a pre-determined date.

Motivation

Buy a cute pair of jeans, etc. Hang them in prominent view. Start wearing them as soon as you can squeeze into them.. When ithey fit well, buy another. Reached your goal? Give away all your larger clothes so you can't backslide. :)

Track Your Progress for a Visual Boost

I keep a pocket calendar in the bathroom and record my weight every week and then jot a monthly total at the bottom of the page. It keeps me focused and I can see at a glance the progress I have made. I lost 3-4 pounds a month, but was motivated by seeing how much progress I made in a year!

Eat More Calories Early in the Day

I eat most of my calories during the day time and reserve something light for dinner, like soup or a chicken breast and veggies. I work off my calories during the day and tend to sleep better at night when I'm not weighed down.

Not losing weight but gaining instead: check your thyroid and blood sugar levels!

The past 14 years I've gradually put on 50 lb but without knowing why. During the past 7 years I was diagnosed with 32 food sensitivities, a low thyroid and insulin resistance!

So if you too can't lose weight and keep gaining make sure to be tested for a low thyroid or insulin resistance.
