Dear Diet Buddy,
The very reason I write this series of letter in the first place is to offer your encouragement. I find it helps to have someone to encourage, and be encourage by! I hope you have read all my previous letters. You notice that we have all the support we need from this people on the blog land. Should you have missed any of the previous discussions, I want to highlight a few of those weight loss wisdom I learned from these blogger.
1) Making WEIGHT LOSS MISTAKES when trying to lose weight is common. The way to handle is by being aware of that mistakes and try to do small changes to tackle it. Kate, who's the weight loss success story herself and the blogger behind the Fat to Fit Geek shares her golden tips to success: Not to fill your plate for one sitting.
2) This one is not from the 30 Days Letters series. DO YOU USE A FOOD JOURNAL TO KEEP TRACK OF WHAT YOU EAT? I hate calorie counting because sometimes it get me clueless about how much calorie I have taken, I feel that it's so complicated to analyze every details of what I put in my mouth. But Marion from Affection for Fitness has a better idea. Food journaling will encourage you to seek simple foods. Genius. So I'm back to the journaling routine this August.
3) DO YOU HAVE A BAD HABIT? Disrupt bad habit by changing the method of performance like how Dana of Kiss My List do:
4) Being STUCK AT A WEIGHT LOSS PLATEAU can be awfully discouraging. It happens to everyone. Leslie from Pampers, Play Dates & Parties shares what worked with her: Make a weight loss chart. Weight loss chart is a great tool to help you see on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, just how much weight you're gaining or losing. Sounds like a great idea.
I've read some other little trick to lose weight which not involve diet and exercise like chewing gum to curb your cravings, Jessica Alba's double corset for weight loss, and using a rubber band technique to control addictions.
