Friend Makin’ Mondays: Weight-Loss Tips

I’ve been striving to live a healthy lifestyle for a while now, and while there’s always more to learn, I have created a few habits that I think will help me throughout my life.  And I know that many of you have some awesome tips to share too so let’s talk about it today!

If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section here at: so we can all see your FMM questions and answers. Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen. The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!

FMM: Weight-Loss Tips


  • I put my fork down more often between bites.
  • I limit my salt intake…especially in the days approaching weigh-in day. 😉
  • I do weight training…not just cardio.  And floor exercises are a big part of my workouts too.
  • I eat more veggies than fruit, but I eat both.
  • I weigh and measure everything at home.
  • I don’t eat everything on my plate just because it’s there.  I am no longer a member of the “Clean Plate Club,”  and that’s okay with me.
  • I drink water regularly because I’ve recognized that sometimes when I feel hungry, I’m thirsty.  It also helps to curb my appetite, giving my brain time to recognize that I’m satisfied.

I may not be an expert, but doing these things has helped me in the past.  And they help now too.  Now it’s your turn to share your tips!  Don’t forget to come back and link up in the comments!  And if you have questions, share those too.  I bet someone here will have an answer for you.  Happy Monday friends!


And the winner of the EatSmart kitchen scale is Steffie! Congrats Steffie! Please check your e-mail!  Thanks to each of you who entered!

    THANK YOU! This topic couldn’t have come at a better time! I am in a rut, need to be pulled out of it. Thinking of the things that have worked in the past may just be what I needed…

    This was fun. I’ve actually learned so much about weight loss on this journey of mine. Of course knowing and doing are two different things, but 2012 is off to a great start so far.

    I tweaked mine a little since I still don’t feel comfortable giving advice on weight loss. 🙂

    I did mine as health and fitness tips, more about good habits and choices than necessarily about weight loss.

    Good topic again! Thanks!
