Let’s Begin

Let’s start by taking a look at where you are at today. After all, you can’t measure what progress you are making if you don’t know where you started. Go ahead, muster some courage and step on that scale. Take out a notebook and write down your start weight.

From there, you can chart your progress as you go along. Simply weighing yourself and writing down the weight changes can be a big motivator to keep you going.

You may also want to take out a tape measure and measure around your waist, your hips, your upper arms and your thighs. You’ll be amazed at how quickly you will start losing inches once you incorporate healthy eating and a little bit of exercise into your daily life.

Lastly, you may want to consider keeping a food journal for a few days before you start making changes. Writing down everything you eat and drink for a week will give you a pretty clear picture about what you need to change.

You may find out that you tend to eat a lot more throughout the day if you skip breakfast, or that your snacking gets out of control at night when you flop down in front of the TV with a bag of cookies or popcorn. Once you see where your weaknesses are when it comes to food, you can take steps to change your habits. Which brings us to our next section…
