I grab my fat

When I want to eat something I don't need, usually a Snickers, I grab my belly fat. I reminds me that I already have a Snickers in storage.

Treat It Like A Job

When I asked a young woman who had lost 200 pounds how she did it, she said that she treated weight loss like a job. No matter how she felt, she showed up. She showed up at the grocery store to buy the right food, she showed up to track her food, she showed up to walk, etc.

Figure out what you are hungry for - it might not be food

Hunger isn't necessarily for food!

When I am tired, I am hungry for sleep.
When I am thirsty, I am hungry for liquids.
When I am feeling down, I'm hungry for support.
When I am feeling lonely, I'm hungry for people.

Don't eat food when you need friends, or fluids, or sleep!!! Recognize what your hunger actually is for, and satisfy it with what it is craving.

Ice cream rarely gives you extra sleep, quenches your thirst, or gives you a hug!

My little secret

I am "secretly" attending weight watchers meetings to lose weight. This way I can eat what I want, still lose, and nobody is looking at me saying "I thought you were on a diet". It's not a diet, it's a life style change, and since nobody knows I don't have to worry about negative comments when I do eat, or mess up! emoticon

Spiked water trick

I meant to buy water flavoring this week but forgot. I don't much get inspired by water, even bottled, and I can drink Diet Coke Cherry or Vanilla Zero by the VAT. This isn't good, even though moderate diet soda consumption is ok. So I got the idea to spike my bottled water with about an ounce of Diet Coke. The water spiked with diet cola has enough of the flavor to make it interesting, but it's still mostly water. It makes it much easier to get eight glasses a day.

Every loss matters!!!

1/4 a pound loss after working hard all week does not sound like a lot. BUT take a stick of butter and put it under your chin. WOW! a quater of a pound makes a big difference. Celebrate every loss not matter how big OR small!
