  1. Set Realistic Goals
    You didn’t gain all your weight in two weeks, so it’s going to take more than two weeks to take it off. A slow steady pace is where it’s at.
  2. Trust Your Body 
    We all gain and lose fat the same way unless there is some sort of underlying medical condition such as hyper or hypo thyroid going on, so if someone else can do it, so can you.
  3. The Jagged Edge
    Success is never a straight line. Its a jagged line with lots of ups and downs where eventually, and hopefully quickly, the lines going upward take you far enough to reach your goal. Expect to make mistakes and learn from them. No one is perfect.
  4. I Don’t Like Mondays
    Sometimes you have a bad meal or a few of them. Perhaps you forgot to food prep and had a real bad meal. Maybe temptation was too great because someone at work buys pizza for everyone or brings a box of pastries and you just have to have a nibble which turns into a few or more. Don’t throw away your entire day or week etc. because of it and tell yourself you will just start over on Monday, or tomorrow or any other day. I restarted on Monday for almost a year because Friday was pizza day. Just realize what you did. Don’t beat yourself up too much and pick up where you went wrong right away. Odds are it wasn’t as bad as you think.
  5. Food Prep! Food Prep! Food Prep!
    Make your meals ahead of time, weigh them and put them in containers. It saves you a lot of time from having to make your meals every time you have to eat. I make about 4 days worth of meals ahead of time. It also helps  you track your food and let’s you know ahead of time when food is going to run out. Also, bring them along with you because restaurants or cafeterias aren’t going to weigh or measure your food order for you. In fact, bring an extra meal if your going out because sometimes you may stay out longer than expected.
  6. Space and Schedule Your Meals Throughout The Day
    Spacing your meals allows you to monitor your hunger easier and prevents you from running out of food because you know when your next scheduled meal is. Too often people run out of food during the day and reach for the very first thing they can put in their mouth which is rarely something healthy.
  7. Get Rid Of All The Junk Food In Your Home
    If you have garbage food around there is a high likelihood that it will end up in your mouth at some point. Once that happens it will set you back and you will have just wasted all that time and effort losing fat before you ate it. Consider junk food anything that’s not part of your diet.
  8. Don’t Cheat
    Be conscious of your willpower. You and only you are in control of what goes past those lips. Who’s going to know if you’re a little heavy-handed on the salad dressing? You are. Only eat what your diet allows—no cheating! Unless you like wasting your time…
  9. Don’t Punish Yourself
    If you fall off the diet and really, really blow it, shake it off and get back to where you left off.  Your body will adjust over several days and you’ll go back to normal.
  10. Be Kind To Yourself
    Self-generated positive reinforcement can do wonders for your attitude as well as your willpower. That’s why many affirmations work.
