Eat things you like!!

I have sabotaged my weight loss plans by trying to eat things I didn't like to cut calories. My life changed when I decided that I would only eat what I like and keep within my ranges. You can maintain your plan if you like doing it!!

pedometer

Always keep an extra pedometer on hand. They have a way of getting lost, broken, or simply escaping.

Have a 'treat' day

I allow myself one 'treat' day where I give in to satisfy my cravings and eat whatever I feel. After this day I am back on track for the rest of the week. This is to relieve the deprivation that usually comes with dieting.

Move throughout the day

When I was using my Bodybugg, I found that I often burned more calories doing things like shopping, cleaning, running errands etc. than I did spending the whole day being sedentary at work and then hitting the gym for an hour.

Eat before you shop

DO NOT go food shopping on an empty stomach! This way, you will be less apt to grab the unhealthy stuff that you do not need.

Weigh yourself at the same time each day you're on the scale

Whether you weigh yourself daily, or weekly, it is important to pick the same time of the day each time you're on the scale. That way you are more accurately able to see your results (or lack of them) over time.

Just Eat

Don't do any other activity while you're eating. Don't watch TV. Don't read a book. Do talk to who ever is with you. Try to focus on what you're eating. Not look up from TV or book in 10 minutes and think-what did I just eat?
