All good tips. I need to figure the calories before I eat something. That would really help me succeed.

Sometimes I may dread exercising, but I NEVER regret exercising.

Your discipline is your freedom...

Stick To Your Plan! Some reminder tips.

emoticon 1. Track and measure your food.
That means all of it.

emoticon 2. Plan your meals.
A continuation of tip #1, plan your meals and snacks in advance so you can enjoy your favorites and still stay on track.

emoticon 3. Look up calories before you bite.

emoticon 4. Make fitness a priority.
Walk, swim, bike. Every bit helps. The more activity you can add to your days the better off you'll be.
Just remember this: Burn it to earn it (extra calories).

emoticon 5. Bring your own food.
This is a great tip if you're heading to a party and don't know what's in the food (or how it was prepared). Pick a healthy low-cal recipe that you can bring. And no matter what kind of food is there, you'll have at least one dish you can eat with confidence.

emoticon emoticon 6. Limit alcohol.
It lowers inhibitions, making it more likely that you'll forget about your nutrition plan and overindulge. If you can party without drinking at all, you'll be better off.

emoticon 7. Throw or give leftovers away.
No guilt!

emoticon 8. Stop the drama.
It's easy to go over your calories one day and feel like a failure. But remember that it takes much more than one day of
overeating to thwart your progress. Accept your slip-ups, learn from them and move on.

emoticon 9. Keep emergency snacks on hand.

emoticon 10. Watch your portions.
Sometimes just a little taste is all you need.

emoticon 11. Focus on people.
Isn't that what get togethers are all about?

emoticon 12. Drink your water.
Drinking more water and eating water-rich foods throughout the day, will help you to eat fewer total calories.
Think watermelon or sugar free popsicles!

emoticon 13. Don't act as if it's your only chance to eat.
With every food that crosses your path, remind yourself that you'll have plenty of chances later to eat.
Don't feel obligated to eat "it". Be a (polite) food snob.

emoticon 14. Keep your eye on the prize.
Before you take a bite, remember your goals. Before you act, ask yourself "Will this help me get where I want to go?" If not, make another decision. And remember that YOU are in control, not the other way around.
