One of the great ways to aid in your weight loss is writing all of your activities down. I know…..some of you think it’s a pain in the rear end. It is. BUT……it gives you a great reference point to see where you are succeeding and failing. ALSO….when you have a great day….write down what you did, how you felt and what made it a great day. Record your sleep, water and food intake, exercise, what you did at work, etc. See if there are additional signs that point to why you succeeded. Maybe something good happened at work to bouy your spirits.
When you have a bad day, write that down too. Also, the practice of writing things down will help you focus on the positive aspects involved with losing weight and distract you from eating. I always need a distraction mid morning and mid afternoon, typically the times that I struggle with eating and stress.
Recording what works and doesn’t and how you feel while you’re experiencing success and failure, will lead to improved weight loss over time.
Burn baby, burn. Say goodbye to fat!
