    I am grateful for energy and vitality. Considering I didn't get as much shut-eye last night, I was surprised by the (ever-so slight) boost in energy I felt this morning. I am grateful I took the time to stick to my routine of morning movement and am able to enjoy an invigorating exercise session from the comfort of my own home.

    **Edit: Oh. This is a much more trivial thing, but I am also thankful that Amazon's Whole Foods carrier delivered the vitamins I had ordered earlier than anticipated (especially because I've been out of them for a few months now!!)

    making exercise a priority, even if I have to split up the workouts into small segments

    I have done 3, 10 min sessions a day!

    Planning ahead! I was going to a celebration dinner so I ate light for breakfast and lunch to have extra calories for eating out.

    Having safe snacks around worked well when I got home for work and was really hungry and had to make food. It makes it easier to not eat something I shouldn't.

    You took the words out of my mouth!

    I experienced both of these today! So I pre-logged my dinner (after eating breakfast and lunch) but was STARVING in the afternoon. But, because I had planned ahead and brought healthy snacks to work (I keep a small fridge under my desk), and because I knew I had extra room in my calories today because I had logged ahead, I could get my snacks on with no worries!

    Planning ahead is one of the best strategies!

    What worked for me today was taking the time to plan out my meals this week and actually meal prepping and pre-logging them in my food diary.

    Also, drinking ALL of the water (128oz today!) helped curbed any desire to snack when I was actually hungry

    periodically with a broccoli and chicken day/or salad lunch day I have a bag of chips with lunch. I eat half and wrap up the other half and give it to co worker to hide. If it stays at my desk I will get hungry and eat it. I believe in snacking healthy snacking. I have almonds, craisins, carrot stick, cantaloupe, fiber one cinnamon bars, low calories and I bring 4 to 5 at work. I interchange it with lots of water. This works for me. I even time my snacking so I don't eat them all at 230pm and starving at 445pm. I just limit the chips. Have it with a healthy lunch later in the week.

    What worked for me today was declining a dinner out and opting to cook a healthy meal at home.

    I'm recommitting to my health today, and one thing that worked well for me was planning to split my calories into 3 meals and 1-2 snacks.

    I'm going to try to update this thread daily so that I remember to capture the positives. I invite all of you to do the same.
    I tried optifast but just couldn't do it Now i'm following what they sugest when finished meals 3 a day at 300 calories. Plus two 150 calorie snacks. I'm on my third day and finding it hard to get all my calories. Good luck to you.
