Weight loss can be a challenge even to the most dedicated of individuals. Below are a few simple tips to keep in mind before, during and after your journey!

A - ACTIVITY - Get in to the groove 30 minutes each day!
B - BREAKFAST is important. Fasting slows your metabolism.
C - COMPLEX carbohydrates aid in trimming fat.
D - DON'T PUT OFF losing 'til tomorrow . . . start TODAY!
E - ENLIST a buddy. Give and receive encouragement!

F - FAT FREE items should still be consumed in moderation.
G - GUESSTIMATE what weight will look/feel best on you.

J - JUMPING JACKS is a great and easy cardio workout.

K - KNOW what bad eating habits you have and change them.
L - LOG progress in a weight loss and/or fitness diary.
M - MUSCLE MASS takes up less room than fat - so exercise!

O - OBESITY is one of the leading causes of diabetes.

P - PRIDE in appearance...you look good, you feel good.
Q - QUIT smoking! Smoking causes shortness of breath.
R - REWARD YOURSELF w/a new outfit for each size you lose!
S - STAY ON TRACK. Don't let others discourage you.
T - TUMMY crunches can quickly flatten flab on your abs!

U - UNDERSTAND a body needs exercise and proper nutrition.
V - VITAMIZE your daily diet with vitamins and minerals.
W - WATER is a necessity. Add a lemon or lime for zing!
X - XTRA fruits and fat-free crackers are ALWAYS allowed.
Y - YEARN TO LOSE. Don't give up! You can do it!
Z - ZIP up that new SMALLER outfit!
