Eat Fruits & Veggies

Yes, this is an obvious one, but it really makes a difference. Having the right nutrition makes your body work better. The fiber, vitamins, and low calories make fruits and veggies the perfect snack or side dish to any meal.

The Power of Positive Thinking

Keep a positive attitude, have positive self-talk (support yourself like you would others), and make your goals positive (not "Don't do this" or "Stop that).

“Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you'll start having positive results.” -Willie Nelson

Mental is #1

This journey is 95% mental and 5% exercise and nutrition. Figure out the reasons that you gained weight, work on dealing with emotions/stress, keep finding new ways to stay motivated, and take care of YOU!

Shop the perimeter of the store

Here you'll find healthier options: vegetables, fruits, meats, diary products, and bread. Eating less processed foods is healthier, saves calories, and has more nutritional value. Plus you'll avoid temptation by sticking to the outside.

Focus on one thing at a time

Build up your skills and break habits gradually. Start with one thing that you want to change, when you accomplish that you'll feel stronger and ready for the next challenge. Baby steps really work. If you attempt everything at once you're likely to become overwhelmed.

Take lots of pictures

Before pictures are great even if they hurt. You'll have something to compare results to. Don't forget to take pictures during your journey too. Its great to have pictures of doing active things, like hiking, walking, sports, etc. These moments will make you proud and motivate you even more.

Stop Drinking your calories

Soda and other sugary high calories drinks have no nutritional value and add extra calories to your day. Stick with water, unsweetened tea, milk, or 100% juices to meet nutritional needs.
