1. Food journalling with others is the fastest way to learn healthy eating. (if at least one eats healthy)
2. Weighing every day should be used in conjunction with a written log of weight. A small increase in weight is worth investigating. Did I eat too much sodium yesterday? Drink too little water? But should not discourage. Stay the course and correct your diet and exercize.
3. Exercize matters, but is the smaller part of the weight loss equation.
4. Your support group must keep you positive. Hopeless thoughts lead to hopeless actions.
5. Humor helps.
6. Measurements of as many possible parts of the body once per week ore so will give you something positive even if the scale doesn't . Kim had us measure wrists, biceps, bust, waist, hips, lower tummy, thighs, calves and ankles. It is worth measuring both arms and legs and keeping a separate record.
7. Records are important. What kicked me off on my current effort was finding an old weight journal and seeing how I worked the weight off. Success fuels success'
