I Will Challenge My Food Choices

I challenge myself to eat healthier. I will eat at least five fruits and vegetables a day. I will drink at least 8 cups of water per day. This means I will not starve myself or even skip meals. I know food is important for my body to run. I will allow myself to have enough yet not too much. I will eat only when my stomach tells me through hunger. I will stop eating when I feel full.                Keep score here.


              I Will Challenge My Ways of Moving

I challenge myself to move my body more. I will find ways everyday to get my heart pumping. I will take the stairs or offer to walk more places. I will dance. I will play. I will run. My body will thank me.

I Will Challenge My Ways of Believing in Me

I challenge myself to love me more! I will think positively about my weight loss efforts even on days I eat more than I want. I will be proud of who I am and proud of my body. I will reward myself with something other than food for my hard work every week. Instead of eating to make myself feel better, I will find ways to express myself. I know I will be sad, mad, bored, lonely, or stressed this year. This year, though, I will find ways to feel better without food (like take my dog for a walk).
