Default Best weight loss advice you've ever received

What is the best advice you've ever received? What was it that you took to heart, put into practice and it ended up working for you?

I think since I've joined this board, I've learned the importance of drinking plenty of water. If you don't drink enough, your body will retain water. Therefore, limiting the weightloss results you see on the scale. Your body also will feel AND look bloated to you which will make buttoning up those skinny jeans just a little bit harder.....

Don't blow the day just because you blew the meal.

I'm a sugar addict. I can not just have one piece of cake, I want the WHOLE cake. So those food pushers at work who tell me, "oh just have a tiny piece of the donut, cake, cookies, candy, _____" fill in the blank, I say, "the donut looks better in the box than on my butt!!" That shuts them up.

What is in your calories is as important as how many you eat. Eating more protein, veg and just a few whole grains keeps me feeling full and satisfied.

Okay, I can't resist one more...also if you stick to your plan the weight will come off eventually.

Mental advice: There's no easy fix or easy way to do this. You need to want it enough to work hard for it. Willpower, motivation are temporary things that won't sustain you on this journey.

Practical advice: Drink water.

I read on here: if food is not the problem, then food is not the solution. This helps my addict mentality.

Default Not just in WL, but life

LOOK FORWARD

Just like in walking, if you look back too much, you're gonna smack your face into a wall.
Head up, and keep on truckin, even if you messed up. Looking back only creates more woe. Fall down 7 times, get up 8.

There is no defeat in messing up, defeat is giving up

edit - and always wear clean underwear. I know my mom would smack me if I didn't include that! LOL!

read it somewhere on here....something along the lines of that motivation will get you started, but commitment will keep you going...thats not quite right but thats the idea...when motivation ends, its the commitment that gets you to the finish line...

and that "hunger is not an emergency"

that being said...i'm still a work in progress LOL but those have helped me out

Low-fat, high-protein. Do this and the carbs fall in line.

Eat clean. You get way more bang for your buck.

Exercise is not optional! Find something you like and just keep trucking.

What works for me, will not work for you. And vice versa!!!

When feeling frustrated go to 3fc and see the people who have braved all odds and surmounted difficult situations which you cannot fathom!!
How year after year they worked singlemindedly and reached their destination.
Then the dark clouds of frustration would disapear and new vigor will soon overtake you.

Really? When I tried the 15 grams of sugar a day thing I was craving it like crazy. I think I'm going to give it another go though!

Okay, this one I read on Emme's thread (in Calorie Counters) so I'm giving her full credit (and I think she wrote that she read it on someone's else's post): It's something along the lines of Being fat is hard. Losing is hard. Maintaining is hard. Choose your hard. I have really kept that in mind, and it has motivated me.
