- DON'T EAT WHILE WATCHING TV: If you do, eating becomes mindless, and before you know it, you can have eaten too much - without even really enjoying, or truly noticing, what you're consumed.
- BUILD UP YOUR EXERCISE GRADUALLY: Even if you can walk for only five or ten minutes without stopping at first, continue to put one foot in front of the other and take breaks as needed. If you listen to your body's comfort signals and increase your time or distance slowly, you'll be able to condition your heart, lungs, and muscles without risking injury or burnout.
- KEEP YOUR SENSE OF HUMOR: As you navigate the weigh-loss journey, try to see the humorous side of things, whether it's marveling at how healthy your new ravings are, how your bod is changing, or how you've become hooked on exercise.
