Motivational people

You have to have motivational people in your life who you respect, love and will always call you out on your bullshit.  The person who does this in my life is absent in presence, so being accountable via my personal reports are all he can go on.  I am committed to being totally and completely honest with my motivational mentor for weight loss.  

It is good to have a mentor through this process.  I suggest many mentors.  See your nutritionist, doctors, surgeons, and fitness experts as the experts in guiding your to personal expertise.  Keep a blog or journal of all your activities.  I am haven't been so much, but I do keep it in my head and tally calories, fat and protein within my daily ranges.  The Daily Plate is an excellent resource, as is Sparkpeople but I LOVE LIVESTRONG.COM.  They have partnered with the Daily Plate for food logging, and I am impressed with it.  Sparkpeople is excellent all around, but I think Livestrong gives them a run on the forums, sense of community, and food/exercise logging. 

Okay, I promised yesterday a run down of my supplements:

CLA Tonalin - For fat metabolism
Chromium Piccolinate - for glucose/insulin production
Flintstones Chewables - multi-vitamin
Omega 3 - fatty acid for brain and cellular health
Emergen-C - As needed when plagued by questionable characters in Walgreens
TUMS - Calcium supplement for strong bones

This combined with a low carb, high protein diet.
