Part of not getting down and staying positive is your mindset. By seeing yourself in the future in a positive light, you can put your plan into action. PLAN ON: being healthy and being OK with ups & downs. Instead of setting goal for a certain event (like 40 pounds in 2 months), concentrate your efforts on feeling good for that event instead. By creating a healthy lifestyle for yourself, you might not just feel good but look good to!
When you movement is limited, you really don't need 1200 calories. It is like gassing your car every day but you don't drive. I tried increasing my calories above 1200 did not work. I am eating healthy & taking my Vemma vitamins. Laid off all bread and immediately dropped 5 pounds.
