Blogger says: "I've been thinking about ways I could make my weight loss tangible so that I can not only see my progress but have a reminder out and about in my apartment to always be mindful...I want to lose 40 pounds so I filled the jar with 400 rocks. Each rock represents .1 lb so every Thursday when I weigh myself, I will take out the appropriate number of rocks from the jar until the jar is empty!" What a GREAT idea/motivational tool!!
Weight loss journal....I like this idea with a comp book..not sure mine would be as busy but the scrapbooker in me is thinking of ways to make a fun food journal with pics and quotes and such...must try this. I love to handwrite things, not sure tracking on my phone would be my best...no where to make notes and track my feelings and such.
Also, eat off of a salad plate, because your serving only needs to be as big as your fist. Eat small portions every 2 hours to keep your blood sugar stable.You need to work out for 40 mins. at least to lose weight (sweat). If you have a craving for something, only eat as much as you need to kill that craving. Plus don't consume sugar drinks.
I've been letting the stress of work distract me! But with the holidays upon us (Halloween candy in the house!), I've got to refocus. Christmas is always a challenge so my short term goal is to eat well & exercise from now until then!
