I reached a goal today of getting back in the 130's. A while ago I told myself what I would do when I saw that number on the scale. And today I'm going to spend the day follow up on my rewards. Follow through on your promises to yourself, it is really important!

I promise to accept myself for who I am. I promise to do the best I can for myself. I promise to give myself the time needed to be healthy in every single area of my life. I promise to give myself a break. I promise to remind myself that I am human, I am not perfect and no one else is either.
Every day when you get up and say that today is the day that I will eat healthy or exercise and then you don't you lie to yourself. Eventually we stop believing liars and as a result, over time you stop believing in yourself. Make one promise today and keep it.
Decide which small promise that you can make today, ie no food after 7pm; exercise today, no alcohol or drink your water. Just make a promise and keep it for a day. It gets easier and you start to believe in yourself. Then weight loss follows.
I work from home, so I have to be sitting at least 8 hours a day in front of the computer. I have found several short songs with a very quick beat that work well when I have a moment to hope up and walk, sidesteps, or jog in place. I turn and look out the window or door to refocus my eyes. I sit back down feeling refreshed.
