Weeks 1 to 10

Stay under your allotted calories everyday.

Guidelines:
Figure out how many calories you can eat to make a daily deficit of at least 750 calories (on average). That will get us to our goal. Stay above 1200! Choose a number and stick with it! Mine is 1400. You'll find that as you lose weight, your exercise burns less calories and you may have to turn it up a notch!

Weeks 1 to 10

Goal of your choice.

Guidelines:
Make a healthy lifestyle goal of your own that will help you lose weight. Be sure to share! An example could be "No eating after 7 PM" or "no treats" or "No fast food" or "Eating three servings of fruit a day" and so on. You get the idea.

Weeks 1 to 10

Drink 64 oz. or 8 glasses of water a day.

Guidelines:
All the article I've read say that water is key in weight loss. Do what you have to to make it happen. You may have to make more trips to the bathroom at first, but your body will adjust. One tip is carrying around a water bottle or jug. Also, don't get discouraged if your weight goes up at first and you've been doing everything. It may just be water weight.
