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.

Drink a glass of water first.

When you're feeling hungry and are fighting the urge to snack, go drink a glass of water. Wait 10-20 minutes, and if you're still hungry, go eat a healthy snack. If the water filled you up, you just saved yourself some calories.

Water Consumption

Though I try to carry my liter bottle of water with me everywhere, while on the job I hate having to wind/unwind the bottlecap to make myself drink the water. So I plan to get a bottle which has a straw for drinking. That way I can keep sipping all the water I want to sip.

Start Small

When I started I could only do 10 minutes on a recumbent bike. Make the best out of that 10 minutes and increase your time each week. I am up to 60 minutes of cardio for each workout session and often add a water aerobics class in after that. Start small because you will see large results.

Water in the A.M.

I drink a big glass of water as soon as I wake up each morning. I learned this tip from fitness expert Denise Austin. The reasoning is that your body has gone without fluid for the last 6-10 hours (however long you sleep) and is dehydrated. It also helps jumpstart your metabolism.

Calcium

GNC's Be Balanced Calcium Chews in Dulce De Leche rock my world. They are a good substitute for candy and they each contain 600 mg of calcium. And from what I know, everyone can use more Calcium.

Fifty Shades Thinner Support Group

I had been losing weight slowly but steadily for a few months. Then when I hit a weight loss Plateau, I really "lost it". I went on a food eating binge for an entire week, and gained 5 pounds back. I was so discouraged. Then I decided that I really needed to be held more accountable. So, I started a Weight Loss Support Group in my community. It's ten members strong and still growing. I figured that If I became a leader of a weight loss support group, I would really stay on track!

Need motivation to workout?

If you find you have a hard time finding the motivation to workout on your scheduled days or just at all try this! Buy a calender and put it up in your room or where you would like. Write you workout schedule on there, go do it, and when you come back put a smiley face showing how completing that workout made you feel. The next time you feel like skipping a work out look at the smiley face and it will remind you how good you felt after finishing it. And why skip something that makes you happy? :)
