Track your food 1st!

No matter how big or small it is, if I eat or drink it, I track it. At first I just ate whatever and tracked it later to see what I consumed. Now I plan ahead and track my food BEFORE I eat it, so I can see whether I can afford to eat everything I planned or if it will be outside of my nutritional goals. I can then adjust if necessary before it's too late. :)

Read The Labels!

Simply by reading labels you can lower the calories you eat. It may be easy to eat a cookie, "cuz its only one, it can't be that bad"....but if you read the label and see that its 400 cal...I promise, it won't taste as sweet.

SHEER WILLPOWER

When seeking motivation to achieve a goal - say a dietary goal or a weight loss goal - I place the goal within grasp. I don't create a goal for myself that is too difficult and I don't put it too far out in the future. Loosing 5 to 7 lbs is a good goal and two weeks is not too far out there, I set the goal and then pursue it doggedly. When that goal is reached I can set another. For me, short bursts of energy is the key.

Want to add Greens to your protein shake?

Wash,dry, and freeze your greens (spinach/kale) in a bag and throw them in the blender with your protein shake. They get so small and don't over power the taste you wont even know they are in there!

Be Honest

Entering your food and exercise isn't enough. Be honest with YOURSELF. Did you add that scrape of butter? Was it 7 walnuts - not 6? If your weight doesn't move you need to reconsider. That exercise - were you REALLY doing your best or was that WALK more of a STROLL? Re-evaluate constantly. Don't waste the effort. DO YOUR BEST, but more than that - BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF.

Prepare Ahead!

A boost for successful weight loss can be accomplished by preparing your meals for the week. Outline on your foodtracker your whole weeks worth of meals. Include your cheats as well as they can be mini goals you get yourself to for rewards. Make sure to plan ahead for each and every meal and shop for the week not for the day leaves it to open to randomly cheat here and there.

Probiotics Are Essential for Prevention of Dis-ease & Obesity

I have used probiotics and digestive enzymes for 20 years. I have found that, in addition to Lecithin and Chromium Picolinate, probiotics assist in keeping the blood sugar normalized. They are also VERY important for the immune system. There are at least 13 strains of bacteria that are essential for preventing inflammatory illnesses and the health of our intestinal system which is the seat of our immune systems. These so-called 'good bacteria' crowd out the nasty ones.

I make a weekly fitness-meal plan

I make a weekly fitness-meal plan. I am training for a half-marathon and get super hungry the day after a long run. Combining the meal planning with the fitness planning means I eat the right stuff for my level of activity. It also helps with the grocery shopping.

Lose weight forever by reframing your thinking

Self talk & how you think about your weight loss journey makes a huge difference to your success. I have reframed how I do this to help me feel focussed & positive. I'm 70+ lbs down, & I didn't LOSE that weight! I ddn't mislay it & I don't plan to pick it up again later. I RELEASED it, & it's gone, outa here. It hasn't got resident's rights, & it's not hanging around waiting to climb back on board!

Charts

Using the weight charts to track reality! I have tracked my ups and downs over 3 years. I noticed that my body wants to stay at specific weights. Those are the areas of plateau. Those are also the weight levels my body wants to get back to. I now know I have to expect my body to resist weight loss in those areas. I am determined to create new lower norms for my body by staying at a lower weight for extended periods. If you can maintain count it as a victory! you are resetting your weight norm.

Your "hunger" might be THIRST!

If I feel "hungry" when I know I shouldn't (it's not near a meal or snack time), that's a signal to me to go drink another full glass of water. 9 times out of 10, my "hunger" vanishes-- and I'm getting all my water in! emoticon

Use commitment management instead of tracking as you go

emoticon I've learned that if I track my food and my exercise at the beginning of the day instead of as I go, I'm more likely to get it done. I feel like I made a commitment to eat these things and do this amount of exercise today so I better get it done.

What do you really want - and why?

A key to getting into a healthy mental & emotional weight loss state is understanding what you really want, and why.

My most successful clients are able to articulate WHY they want to lose the weight, and picture what it will be like when they get there:
- Play with kids
- Reduce Rx dependence
- Dress size
- Feel more attractive, etc.

Pounds are like money - people don't really want money, they want the things money can buy. So don't focus on the # of pounds! Focus on the WHY!

A LOT of secrets for a fast and a successful weight loss!

1) Drink a glass of spring water first thing when you wake up and before you eat any meals or snacks.
2) Buy a nutribullet or a good juicer, add organic fresh fruits and veggies and drink up! You will have so much energy!
3) If you don't exercise or workout, go for walks! you may not notice changes fast but it's better than sitting and watching TV!
4) Perform a coffee enema!
5) Try to eat before going out for shopping or work.
6) No fast foods unless it's the only option!!

When facing temptation...

I remind myself "What I REALLY want matters more than what I want right NOW."

Remembering that I have made weight loss and a healthy lifestyle the priority helps me put temptations and cravings in perspective--it takes away their power, and empowers me to make mindful choices.

Vary your calorie intake

If I consume more calories one day, because i went out for dinner or whatever, I then cut back more the next day or two. The body wants stability and if we stay at the same calorie level every day, it adapts to that level. Switching up, so that we are not consuming the same number of calories every single day, the body will not settle in as easily. This helps keep the weight loss progress and can help get through a plateau!

EMERGENCY FOOD

I always grab an apple and a big lidded glass filled with Crysal Light as I go out the door. It helps me not to stop at a fast food place because the apple keeps me satisfied till my next meal. The drink quenches my thirst instead of getting a soda. emoticon

Washing Dishes and Stepping

When I worked and I took a bathroom break I would march in place to increase my steps. It also works if you are standing on your feet like a cashier, nurse, gardener, or other jobs. The steps add up quickly. Even you you march in place brushing your teeth for two minutes, dish washing, cooking you are getting tons of steps in. Just do it. MOVE!!!
