If you want to lose weight, you've come to the right place!

The key to any weight loss plan is to eat less and move more. We're here to help motivate you and share tips to help keep you on track!

Set  Your Goals

There is nothing wrong with dreaming big, but a large factor in weight loss success is setting the right types of goals. Here are some tips for setting weight loss goals.

  • Make it measurable
  • Focus on what is attainable
  • Think about the timing
  • Focus on the process 
  • Plan for setbacks
  • Adjust your goals as needed
  • Make sure you consult a doctor before beginning any weight loss or exercise program.

Eat Healthier Foods

Adopt a new eating style that promotes weight loss. Eat more fruits, vegtables and whole grains. Cut back on sugar and 'white foods'. Here are some links to help you along the way.

Drink Plenty of Water

Drinking at least 64oz of water a day is recommended. Drinking half your body weight in ounces is preferable to keep your body hydrated. Drinking water also helps to curb your between meal cravings.

Exercise

The more you move, the more calories you will burn. Staying active and eating right is the only truly effective way to lose weight and keep it off. We have provided you with links to various exercises to help you in your weight loss journey.

Accountability and Support

Tracking your food intake and excercise each day and will help you stay focused and motivated as you work each day to reach your weight loss goals.

Having a good support system is also key to weight loss sucess. Surround yourself with friends, family or even a workout/accountability partner who will support you in your weight loss journey.

Please feel free to ask for advice and tips on the group - we are all here for you.

Be sure to share your tips and support with the other moms here as well.

treadmillTogether we can help each other to stay on track and shed those pounds!:)
