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.

Grilled veggies

When we fire up the charcoal grill for steak, fish or chicken, we also grill sliced zucchini, yellow summer squash, onion slices and sliced mushrooms sprayed with a little canola oil and seasoned with Cavender's Salt Free Greek Seasoning.

Secret Account

I set up a secret account in a bank that is to far for me to go to. This bank is also smaller and has better interest rates. When I have extra cash I take it to that bank (to keep it active).

Pounds and Pressure

For every pound you lose, you take 4 lbs of pressure off from your knees!

You will always feel better afterwards

On days that I don't feel like exercising or think that I don't have time, I remember that I ALWAYS feel better after I've exercised. I never regret taking that 30-60 mins to exercise but I've often regretted skipping it.

Just Do Something!

Everyone has those days where they just don't feel like working out -- and we all can come up with a list of reasons why we should skip the days workout. Instead of talking yourself out of it, just do something. Even if it's just a walk around the block!

Workout in the morning

Get up an hour early and get moving. You can go to the gym or go for a run...whatever suits you. Try to prep anything you need the night before (pack your gym bag, organize the clothes you're wearing the following day, put out a quick morning snack).

Vary Your Caloric Intake

Jillian Michaels said on the Biggest Loser to vary your caloric intake: eat on the low end for two days, eat in the middle range for three days, eat on the high end (even going a little over) on two days. This keeps your body guessing. I did this all last week and lost 3.5 lbs!

Think of your Calories as a Budget

The best thing I was ever told was to think of my calories as a budget. Know how many you can have each day and before you eat something ask yourself if you can afford it. If it's worth the amount you have to spend and you have the calories eat it if not rethink it.
