Do Not Keep Up With Fast Eaters

I never really believed others influence your eating style until a dear friend visited. She's heavier than she was and I noticed she gobbles her food. One thing I've done is try to savor each bite. When she was here though, I found myself matching her bite for bite. Try to notice if someone you're near does that and STOP. Go back to savoring each bite, no matter how quickly they eat. It really will keep you from slipping back to a bad habit.

Stop Berating Yourself

Remember that weight loss is a JOURNEY and no one is perfect. You WILL make mistakes. You WILL sometimes overeat. You WILL not work out. some days when you know you "should." That is all normal. And understandable. Don't berate yourself. Tell yourself, "OK I slipped. I won't do it again." Then mean it. That doesn't mean you starve and work out like a Marine. It means you return to your plan. When I believed these truths, I began to get healthy. And I started to learn how to stay that way!

Don't Give Yourself Options

My husband and I followed SP together to lose our weight (he lost 80+ pounds). He taught me there are no options (as someone else said, treat it like a job). It's not "if" you should work out. You must work out. It's not "if" you will eat healthy. You will eat healthy. Do NOT give yourself the option. My husband still practices this. One example -- No matter what time he gets home at night, he works out. Whether it's 6 p.m. or 10 p.m. Talk about inspirational!

Plan your "Food Day"

One of the best things I've learned is to plan the food you will eat that day. It's a psychological thing - - you plan it, write it down, and you feel as if you should follow it. If you slip, that's ok. I bet you won't slip as much as if you didn't write it down. Give it a try! emoticon

Think back to what you enjoyed....

I found exercise to be a chore until I started to think back to the days (not so long ago) when I was thin.

It's all about attitude. I don't "exercise" but walk, swim & bike to relax and unwind - - and most of all have fun!

Change your attitude & you'll change your life!
