Make it your lifestyle

Don't commit to doing anything to lose weight that you're not willing to do for the rest of your life, day in and day out. This will ensure that you stay balanced, moderate, and sustainable in your weight loss.

Paper Clip Chain

I keep a chain of paper clips next to my computer monitor at work. Each paper clip represents one pound lost. They are always front and center to help keep me motivated. I remember to say "No thank you" to the office doughnuts.

Track Track Track

The thing that has helped me the most is to track everything that goes in my mouth. Even when I'm "cheating" or having a bad eat day. I track everything! Usually I slow down on that bad eat day once I have to put it on paper. It makes it more real for me. And holds me accountable!

Don't Give Up!

You will make mistakes, you will stumble sometimes, but DON'T Give up! All the little steps backward are great lessons to help you on your journey. Getting through them makes you stronger. Keep going no matter what life brings you and eventually you will reach your goal.

I keep Atomic Fireballs close by at all times. 3 of them are only 60 calories and the the fiery cinnamon taste burns a craving away real quick!

Checking food quantities

One of the biggest helps to staying on track that I find is to have the measuring cups, spoons and food scales on my bench beside where I dish up meals - and to USE them for everything.
I find that judging weights and measures - they tend to creep up and I'm never sure exactly how much I eat

Standing While Working

I have a desk job and do a lot of sitting. I have changed to be able to stand while I work. It burns more calories, is better for my posture, and helps strengthen core muscles.
