  5. Write everything down Journal, journal, journal! It is so important to write everything you eat and drink down. Why? Research shows that people who do journal tend to be more successful in their weight loss efforts than those who don’t.
  6. Start a 30-day challenge – Set a goal to stay on plan (absolutely no cheats) for 30 days. Get a wall calendar and every day that you stay on plan, cross it off and know that you are one day closer to an even better body! Join our partner, LiveWell Colorado.
