Eat Right!

Stop the Backsliding!

We all face challenges as we try to improve our lifestyle! If you started out great but have stopped measuring your portions or keeping your Food Log, don't worry! These are common challenges, and you can overcome them!

To get back on track, let's get back to basics.

  • Portions count. Remember that the key to sensible portions is right in your kitchen cabinet! If you've stopped measuring, it's good to revisit your bowls — think of them as measuring tools and not just a means to get your amazing dinner on the table!
  • Choose the right foods. I know how easily fattening snacks, junk food, and soda can sneak back into your diet. If it's just one food, try taking it out of your cabinet. Sometimes just eliminating the temptation — throw it away, put it out of reach, don't buy it again — can make a big difference!
  • Get moving. Exercise is the absolute best way to jump-start your weight loss! Even a few minutes counts! Take a short walk, stand while you talk on the telephone, walk instead of drive to a nearby store. These simple activities can give you energy and make you feel great!
  • Get motivated. "You're doing a great job!" Sometimes hearing those words is all it takes to get you back on track! Have you tried visiting my Message Boards? You'll find folks who are working through the same challenges — and succeeding! Plus, you'll be able to discuss your concerns and offer support to others. What a perfect way to get back on track!
