Obsession

I stopped using my scale... Seems in my head I always want it and expect it to be more weight loss then it is. I had to stop weighing in so often. Now instead I see my pants getting smaller and it keeps me from being so hard on myself or giving up when it's not what I wanted to see...

Keep up those tastebuds happy

Varying your daily menu to include foods that taste good and are healthy, will keep you from feeling "emotionally hungry" for "something good"...

Make even little things a Big Deal

When trying to eat healthier, or learning to cook healthier, what helps me keep from thinking of "diet" is presentation. I go through the trouble of setting the table, plating the food and making everything beautiful! It helps remind me that I'm doing something special for myself!

Double the Walk at the Park

If your park has a loop, then walk one way for the first time and when you get back to the starting point then turn around and walk the other way for the second loop. You'll have a new perspective so it keeps the walk interesting.

Progress, not perfection

Remember, two steps forward and one step back is still one step forward. As long as you keep moving forward, you're winning. No one is perfect -- forgive yourself, learn from your experience, and soldier onward.
Progress, not perfection!

Do it for yourself

I have tried lots of diets over the years because everybody always said that I needed to lose weight. But I could never stick to anything. Finally, last year (2009) I decided I was going to do something for me. I set my priority as becoming healthy for me--and it's working (so far 68 lbs. gone.) emoticon
