Be creative!

Do something creative. It feels good, takes your mind off food and diet. It makes you feel accomplished. It is a great release of tension. It gives you something to focus on. Music. Art. Writing. What ever you can be creative with.

Have fun!

Don't be an old sour puss, just because you are not getting your way and eating all the junk you were doing. Instead smile, be happy, play some fitness games - jump rope, wii fit plus, dance around. It makes all the difference in the world! Your family will thank you for it.

Quick and easy start: You CAN do it!

Remember that Rome wasn't built in a day. You didn't gain all the weight overnight, and it won't disappear that quickly either. With that in mind, think movement.
