Secrets of Success

I pay more attention to nutrition information and stay away from things that are high calorie. I have decreased (not stopped) the amount of soda I drink. Instead of 8 Dr. Peppers I have cut this to 4 and am drinking more water. emoticon

Summer Treat

When bananas get overripe, I slice them and freeze them on wax paper on a cookie sheet. Once frozen I store them in a freezer bag. If I feel like a little something sweet, I can pop out a slice of banana and it tastes like ice cream to me. Not many calories at all in a slice of banana!

little tricks to help

1st tip get 8 rubber bands, put them around your wrist, then when you drink an 8 oz glass of water take it off, so easy to keep track. I do the same for fruits and veggies, just use blue for water, green for veggies and purple for fruits or whatever color. 2nd tip is buy a clear see thru jar and for each pound you lose add a marble to the jar. This is good visualization. 3rd tip is drink a glass of water first thing in morning. Its suppose to jump start your metabolism. Hope these work for you.

Egg and Spinach Scramble for Breakfast

Starting my day with this simple recipe, sets the tone for better choices throughout the day. The basic recipe starts with 1/3 - 1/2 C. eggwhites and 1 C baby spinach. Add fresh or leftover veggies, sauteed in spray oil. I like zucchini/summer squash, mushrooms, onion, sweet red/yellow peppers. Add some type of lean meat (like turkey breast) - 1 to 2 oz. chopped. Other great additions, pico de gallo, black olives, or parmesan cheese. Any combination makes a great start for your day.

Follow food plan and avoid cravings

I'm in maintenance but still cravings and overeating bothered me. I learned that making a food plan and sticking to it+ eating everything slowly, mindfully and sitting down prevents cravings.

more veggies and whole grains

2 secrets - I took large bags of frozen vegetables into individual steamer bags with just 2 cups each - you can find these near the plastic sandwich bags in most stores. That way I can pull out a bag and make a serving batch quickly with no waste. (you could do one cup instead)

On Hand

I keep many different kinds of frozen vegetables on hand so I don't get sick of the same thing. Frozen veggies don't go bad and are more convenient than fresh. I do buy fresh in season. I live alone and had to learn how to have good choices on hand and not have to throw unused/spoiled food away.
