Stay positive and stick with it.

Don't get too caught up in the ups and downs, just keep trudging ahead.

WOW Keep this going. All thats been listed so far has been amazing. Im still in the middle of my weight loss journey but what I find to be my "key to success" are these (and most have already been listed Oh well)

-LOTS and lots of water. If I dont drink my water I slack off.

-Keeping a positive attitude. The less I berate myself the better I do. If I try to remind myself that Ive come THIS far then I can usually keep myself from grabbing that extra cookie. Just picture yourself how you want to be and remember how worth it this all will be.

-The knowledge that just because you mess up or it takes you 5 months to lose 10 pounds does not mean you are a failure. And dont think of it as a diet think of it as a lifestyle change. Letting my body change at its own speed has been a nightmare and a blessing for me. Of course I just want the weight to melt right off but deep down Im glad its taken a while too. When I fall off track for WEEKS, my body doesnt retaliate as much because Ive conditioned myself not to binge as much as I used to. SO while Im eating more and less nutritionally, I realize that I dont go straight for the fast food like I used to.
