From the Beginning...

A reminder lesson from yesterday - Tip - Don't bring it in the house.

That's right, if you shouldn't eat it, if it's a 'no-no' list rock star - do not give it a venue near your thighs.

I know that sounds simple. And you are thinking "Easy enough for you to say". You're right, it's a hell of a lot easier to type that advice than to follow it. In fact, I am crap at following it more days than I would like to admit. But, like everything else in life, weight loss is a process.

You are creating new lifetime habits, not flicking a switch. Because as I am known for saying, "If I had an absolute answer on weight loss, I'd be a gazillionaire." Actually, I would have so much money, they would have to make-up a new name for the amount that would pepper my thousands of accounts world wide.

Oops, sorry, rolling into my fantasy world there... FYI, in that world, I have a body like Jennifer Garner. The woman is amazing, but I digress...

Anyway, the actual tip here is, if you haven't yet, clean out the cupboards. It's spring and any excuses you had about needing comfort foods are officially gone. Instead you need lighter foods that do not weigh you down as you get even more active. The kind that make you more svelte so that you are happy (or happier) with the way you look in less clothing.

Don't get me wrong, there is no bikini in my future. But shorts and possibly even a tank are, because I am not going to spend another summer all covered up sweating my butt off because I hate my body. Instead, I am going to accept myself and accessorize accordingly sister!

Yours in health, Kate
