Take-Aways #17

- 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.

This totally made sense to me.
Going through a rough diet patch. Not completely off the wagon, but so down about it. Maybe its the weather. Maybe its this huge tire around my stomache.uuuggghhhh
But, the light at the end of the tunnel is that you inspire me.
Thanks again!

DIET DIVA: I'm still going through a rough patch but hanging in there... how are you doing? I'm glad I inspire you!

RN2010: I think I've been doing a lot of unconscious eating lately. How are you doing?
