10 Weight-Loss and Fitness Tips From Fat to Fit Challenge Participants

Inspiration to help you meet your goals

7. Change Bad Habits

Beknorr: I have found that I can't keep junk food in the house. I allow myself to buy only what is good for me. I limit treats for when I am visiting or out for the evening. I'm not on a diet but instead changing my lifelong eating habits.

8. Plan, Plan, Plan

Kathyldse: If I can plan, then I have a good day. My stress and energy level can make me snack crazy, so I also have to plan for healthy snacks. In addition, writing in my journal reinforces my sense of accomplishment, particularly if I also exercise.

9. Get Spiritual

Eliza03: I have a really good replacement for eating: I pray. Instead of feeding my face with more food, I pray out loud, and it takes up my time.

10. Make Exercise Intergenerational

Kimmcgrew: Believe it or not, my kids and grandkids motivate me.  Not only do they encourage me, but they exercise with me.  We have started Zumba for the Wii and Just Dance for the Wii.  It makes exercise fun.  It's not boring.  It's not something I dread.
