“It really has been putting all of the things Eat Smart, Move More, Weigh Less has been teaching me into action. If I had to pick one thing, I would say it has been tracking my food and water consumption. It serves as a constant reminder that I have to be mindful of what and how much I need, not what I WANT to eat and drink. I have come to realize that portion control is my biggest problem because I used food to escape.

To be honest, I am surprised that I have lost this much weight because I haven’t been starving myself or eating nothing but kale smoothies. It has been the 10 small changes to my life instead of 1 or 2 huge changes that has been the difference. Also, learning and focusing on one new habit each week and then building on that has been huge. It really helps me to develop the new habits vs. diving into a complete lifestyle change on day 1.

Thanks for the weekly encouragement and all that you do!”
