I have a few little tips we’re taught along the way, if you don’t mind a nursing student’s advice.
Keep your goals small. Achieving small goals is more attainable and will boost your confidence into the next week. When you do attain them, use small, non-food rewards; that means no dozen cupcakes when you achieve your exercise goals :). That’s something I’ve always done, but I’m working to change that.
There is an app called ‘myfitnesspal’ that will help you track calories and exercise to make sure your not in calorie excess or deficit for what you need.
