Think of the big picture

When offered unhealthy food, think about the big picture. While eating the food all you might be thinking about is how bad you'll feel when you're done. Then you can decide to make a better choice and when you're done you can feel good about yourself.

I grow my own food

When I get home from work, I put on my overalls and get out in the back yard to see what's new. Right now I have ripe artichokes, sugar snap peas, radishes and onions. Soon I will have beans, carrots, and strawberries. Super delicious, organic and VERY local!

How To Trim Your Medication Costs

If no generic is available, ask your doctor or pharmacist if a less expensive brand-name drug in the same medication family would work as well. If you have a prescription drug plan, ask your doctor to prescribe drugs that are your plan's "preferred" list, as these will be the least expensive.

Helping with the mental part of weightloss

I learned that positive self thinking is the key to keeping you healthy on the inside. Pick the things you like most about yourself and focus on that. Whenever you start thinking negative revert back to that list. As you lose weight add more things you like to that list.

Log it and learn!

Log everything you eat. Even the odd grape you pick up from the fruit bowl. You are only cheating yourself.

It is easy just to grab a little something from the fridge or as you pass the fruit bowl.

Don't Use Fabric Softener on Moisture-Wickin
g
Clothing.

Fabric softener will keep the fabric from breathing well. This will defeat the purpose of the special weave in the clothing. The special fabric is great and a more expensive than the regular fabrics, so keep your workout clothes doing the job.

Eat 3 a Day

You need to eat to lose weight. I have found out through the years that you cannot lose weight if you starve. Your body hangs on to the fat and you do not lose any after you have lost a little fluid. Eat at least 3 meals every day and a snack, but keep it healthy and low on fats & sugars.
