Start with One Little Thing

If losing the weight you want to lose seems overwhelming, start with one little thing. Just go a step at a time. Pick something to do that is do-able. Something you can fit into your schedule and don’t resist doing. Think in terms of losing ½ pound a week, which adds up to 26 pounds a year. If you are gaining 5 pounds or so a year, imagine what a difference this will make in a few years!

Here are some ideas…

  1. Move your body 20 minutes, 5 days a week. It can be something fun like dancing or playing with your children or grandchildren.
  2. Omit one of the following from your diet: wheat, soy, sugar, dairy, peanuts
  3. Smell peppermint oil several times a day (I recommend Young Living, which is the most pure and powerful oil I have found).
  4. Skip one or two desserts a week.
  5. Spend 10 minutes a day doing deep, diaphragmatic breathing.
  6. Spend 10 minutes a day in meditation or prayer.
  7. Walk stairs instead of using the elevator.
  8. Eat at least one hot meal a day.
  9. Cook at least one meal a day.
