Nobody Like a Buddy!

emoticon Whenever motivation is low or whenever you get in a rut...Having someone to go through the "pain" and the process with you makes getting up for the task at hand that much easier and enjoyable. I have yet to see the buddy system fail.

Don't weigh yourself after a sinful day!

Weighing yourself right after having a bad day will not reflect your true weight! So this might get you down without a good reason. Just get back on track and weigh yourself then! emoticon

You can't change the past. You can change the future.

When I fall off the wagon diet-wise, I don't drop out of the race. I believe that no matter how often I creep back into old habits I will never reach a stage where I say "I failed again - I might as well give up forever!" I always believe there is hope that this is going to be the time when I change my habits for life. My attitude to abandoned diets from the past is that losing some weight for a while is better than never having lost any and potentially being way bigger than I am now. emoticon

Never Give Up

If I get off track, I do not berate myself. As soon as I can, I get back on track. Broken ankle - gained weight, choice is to give up - NO! Start again. Losing family members to cancer...do not give in....keep going....give myself as much grace as I would give a friend ..start again. I am not a quitter emoticon

Keep Moving Forward

I don't allow myself to dwell on the past, instead I remain positive by working out, eating right and moving forward. emoticon

Weekend Weigh In

Weekend eating has always been a challenge for me until I joined the Largest Virtual Weigh In Team and started weighing on either Saturday, Sunday or Monday. It really helped me stick to healthy eating habits on the weekend.

Plan ahead and you will be prepared for the tempation (s).

I have found over the years that if you set out your morning by making decisions to eat right and act upon them you will do better. I make my lunch along with snacks everyday for work. I make sure I have enough snacks that will carry me over after lunch and when I drive home. This has helped me maintain my focus.

Eating fruit

I have found that eating fruit by itself tends to make me more hungry and causes problems with my sugar levels. However, If I add a protein with that fruit My sugar levels stay even and I can go longer between eating. One of my favorite snacks is an apple with a slice of american cheese.

Increase your protein intake

For women, increase your protein intake to 75 - 100 grams a day to break thru a plateau. I was eating in the low 60's and had been at a plateau for 2 months. I increased my protein intake to this level and started losing again.

Do a little more

I always try to do just a little more than before... in everything. Examples: I used to brush my teeth leaning on the counter. One day, I made a conscious decision to remain standing upright, the next day I started moving my feet while I brushed. When I'm working out on the treadmill, I try to stay at a higher speed/elevation longer than the last time, even if it's just 30 seconds longer. This way I can become more active in the little things I do and continue to push myself!
