# 22 Yes, yes they can.
#14 I don't see how changing the mirror will help
I just choked.
I think it means change yourself not the mirror.
#19 D. Don't worry about the pounds. As you tone and change fat to muscle weight loss should be slower because muscle weighs more. I have only dropped about 10 lbs in the last 12 months but I have dropped several inches off my waist and look and feel stronger and healthier. Don't let the scale be your only guide and keep on truckin'.
Totally agree. And like she said, you should be losing inches, so buy a tape measure and start measuring yourself about twice a month to see the changes.
#22 is most definitely HMOTB!!!!
#16 great post as always… with 16, however, I would recommend buying a small, low cal substitute for whatever your craving usually is. For example, I crave sweets like a mad man, so I bought little fun sized, 50 calorie packs of Sour Patch Kids. I often get cravings at night and I find that giving in slightly and enjoying a small amount of candy makes it way less likely that I'll get frustrated and end up binging. When you have a craving, it's good to indulge it just a little bit, so you don't end up going overboard and eating too much later on. Not sure if this works for everyone, but it works for me – just a suggestion!
I would suggest staying away from processed sugars entirely, especially at night. What about a sweet potato with dinner, or something sour&sweet but natural like a green apple? Honey even would be much better. Just my two cents.
#14 You should actually learn to love your body at whatever size it is. It's the only one you have, and without it, you would not exist. So working toward making the body you have healthy is what you should do.
Thanks to the Daily Motivation, I now have a gap.
As to #16, my "cheat" is a glass of chocolate milk. Gives me my sweetness, full of nutrients. Also, exercising at night, getting on the computer, or doing work are all, frankly, terrible ideas because they can get you all keyed up and make it difficult to sleep. Instead, drink water (many times when you think you're hungry you are actually dehydrated), read a good book or do something relaxing, and take a mental health break.
I made it into Daily Motivation?! I guess all of those 5:30 a.m. runs finally paid off. My favorite way to stay motivated is to sign up for a race and set a big goal; shooting for a sub-3 hour marathon in May…luckily I have The Berry to keep me motivated!
