Heather shares her weight loss tips below:

 

*I try to drink AT LEAST 8 cups of water per day.  The ideal amount would be a person's body weight divided by 2 (drink that many ounces).  For example, a person weighing 150 pounds would shoot for drinking 75 ounces of water.

 

*Track what you eat!  Keeping a food journal is a great way to keep accountable for what goes into your mouth.  If you have a week where you didn't lose weight, or you gained, compare what you ate to a week where you had great results.  What did you do different?

 

*Be consistent!  Long-term results come from long-term effort and staying commited to your goals.  Don't let a bad food day become a bad food week.  The very next meal is a great time to start over and tomorrow is ALWAYS a new day.  Blank slate!

 

*Don't wait for "Magic Monday" to change your direction.  "I'll start my diet on Monday/I'll start working out on Monday".  That is the most elusive Monday ever... start now!  Make your next food choice a good one!

 

*Forgive yourself!  We're not perfect creatures.  Slip-ups happen!  So you ate an entire package of Oreos.  I don't blame you, those are amazing.  Don't punish yourself for that by giving up on striving for your goals.  Again, tomorrow is a new day! 

 

*Talk to yourself like you would a friend.  Lift yourself up with positivity.  Don't condemn yourself every time you look in the mirror with things like "You're so fat/You're disgusting/No wonder you're single" etc.  I've been there, and it yields nothing good.  If you wouldn't say it to a dear friend, don't say it to yourself.
