1. Drink lots of water.
2. Ask for a to go box when you order your meal in a restaraunt., put 1/2 of it in the box before you start eating. This excites my DH as he will be the one finishing it later!
3. Dont be afraid to ask the server what is in the food you are ordering, it is their job.
4. Look up the food you will order before you leave the house, believe me it may shock you into ordering something else!
5. You CAN do push ups, sit ups and squats. Start with 1.......
6. In a month you will be amazed at the new person you are becoming.
7.Share in your successes, revel in them, enjoy them...you have worked hard to acheive them.
8. Your friends may think you are obsessed, or put you down, ignore them cuz when you have lost 20 pounds, they will have gained 10!
9. Start over NOW when you over eat. It is OK, it is done, It is NOW. Dont go into a 7 day binge because you messed up.
10. Eat your exercise calories!
11. When you hit a plateau, and you will, come HERE and read Banks plateau busters, they work!
12. Good Luck
Now I would love if everyone would add something here for the newer people, and for ME so I can add to my list of things I know. I might add something later myself!!
