HOW TO WIN AT LOSING
Secret #1 You deserve to be in great shape. The first step in dropping the weight is realizing that you don’t like where are and know that you deserve to fix it.
Secret #2 Stop being so hard on yourself. Believing that you can do something will make you actually do it!
Secret #3 You don’t have to spend hours in the gym. Try to find one favorite workout and squeeze that in daily (kickboxing class, spinning, yoga, Zumba)
Secret #4 Eat more, not less. Start each day with a proper breakfast. Ditch the deprivation diet and never let yourself get to the point where you’re famished with no healthy food around. Carry a healthy snack with you at all times for that just in case moment.
Secret #5 Ask for what you want. When eating out speak up for how you want your food prepared (hold the dressing, half the cheese)
Secret #6 Do the write thing. Keeping a journal of everything that is going on while you’re losing weight is a great way to stay focused. This way you can also go back and look at the entries to see what whet right and what went wrong.
