BlubberBusters Tips from Lucy

You say this year is going to be the year you WILL get to a healthy weight! I believe you can live healthier. Print out the following New Yearís Pledge. Read it and then sign. Keep it in a place where you can read it everyday.  

 Blubberbusting New Yearís Resolution Pledge   

I hereby pledge to myself to make my body healthier. There are three ways to make my body healthier. This year I will work on all three.

  1. First, I pledge 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.
  2. Second, I pledge 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.
  3. Third, and most importantly, I pledge to love myself. 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.  

Losing weight is very hard work. It is good work, though. This year you will be healthier. Remember to not give up since losing weight takes time. Believe in yourself and remember that I believe you can do it!  

Make this a healthy year!
