Get Crafty and Make an Inspiration Chart

Guidelines:
*make a collage: of cute clothes, or of you and friends, the beach, puppies or anything else that makes you happy. *make a chart set up kind of like a boardgame, and set up non-edible prizes for yourself at 5 or 10 lb. incriments(ex. a new shirt, a new movie, a pair of earrings, a trip somewhere special, etc.) and make the prizes bigger and better with the more weight you lose. *hang it somewhere you will see it often so that you will be reminded of your goals and the rewards you'll get when you reach them

Weeks 1 to 12

Record everything you eat and all exercise you do

Guidelines:
I want you to recored your food and exercise on here, everyday to the best of your ability. To make any progress, you need to see how much you are eating compared to how much you are exercising. This always helps me lose weight.

No more soda or juice

The only things you can drink are water, tea, or coffee. Alcohol also has alot of empty calories so keep it light and only special occasions

Weeks 2 to 12

Junk that fried food and fast food

Guidelines:
No more fast food, and if you must then go for a salad with a light or vinegarette dressing. Also no more fried anything. French fries, fried okra, fried chicken, etc. Anything that was chunky dunked in oil is out of the question. This will majorly cut your calories.

Weeks 8 to 12

Spend more time wearing less

Guidelines:
The more time you spend in less clothing the more aware you will be of your size and what you are eating. You are less likely to eat a burger if you can see the parts of you that you are trying to fix versus if they are covered up.
