Not to forget….

Mindful eating- plan your meals, and your shopping, take your time over eating this week, and enjoy every mouthful.
Habit releaser of the week– could you travel a different way to work this week, or if you are retired travel a different way to somewhere you go regularly. Take in your new surroundings and take your time.
Sleep– getting up and going to sleep at the same time every day.

Checking your measurements and/or doing your photos before you start. Ask your nurse or HCA to check your weight, height, waist, HBA1C, liver test, HB, kidney test. Some people prefer to use just photos to show their progress- it is up to you!
