The tried-and-true habits that have helped you lose weight the right way.
Use a desert plate as your main meal plate. Don't pile it high, just watch your portions.
Playing with my babies always helps me lose the extra pounds, I have to run to keep up with them!!
I have found it extremely useful to always have my sports water bottle around. Mine is 32 oz so I track my water by how many I drink. I know I have to drink 2 of these to get my water intake in for the day. I take them everywhere and it really helps on the weekends when I'm in the car a lot more.
Each morning, I pack my bag full of healthy choices. I include bfast,lunch, 3 fruits, 1 yogurt, something crunchy to satisfy cravings (like veggies or granola bar) water and an emergency meal bar. I eat at certain times in the day and when I am hungry for something else, I go to my bag ONLY.
Every lick, taste, snack needs to be recorded to stay accountable for what I eat.
I have found those nifty little pint size boxes of cherry tomatoes available in the produce aisle to be the ideal 100 calorie snack-pack. No preservatives, filling, and good for you! Much better than a not-so-satifying 100 calorie pack of cookies, IMHO...
Rome wasn't built in a day. Neither are you. Exercise helps your body feel good and it tones your body. Rely on loosing weight with a combination of exercise and the proper control of the right foods.
Incentives are an important aspect of reaching weightloss goals or any life goals in general. Pick something you love to do and set a time line and go for it. A mani / pedi for 5lbs weight loss, New workout gear for 10lbs , massage for 15lbs loss and so on. You Catch my drift.
Start the morning by eating a C Vitamin Fruit, eat greens two times a day (lunch and dinner), and 3 fruits during the day or evening and you will get a success.
When I follow this advice I lose weight, feel better and I stay on track.
Whenever I feel unmotivated or want to give into a craving, I go into my bedroom and get out a pair of jeans that once were tight on me and try them on to see how loose they've gotten. That gives me motivation to see how far I've come and to keep on going!
