Preparing for Gatherings

Whenever we have a family gathering or party to attend, I always eat some fruit, yogert, or raw vegetables with hummis so that I do not arrive hungry and be tempted to dig into the unhealthy things like chips and dip, etc. If I am not extra hungry, I will be able to make wiser food choices.

Don't give up

After a 3 month plateau, I changed my exercise and diet routine and now the weight is coming off again. Just like we can get in a rut so can our diet and exercise and our bodies know it

Hunger Free Write

I always want to snack at work. Vending, snack shack, whatever. But I've found that if I sit for even 3 minutes and just write whatever comes to mind, never stopping, I get over the "hunger" for snacking faster.

80 - 20 Rule Rocks

I planned ahead for the week and tried to stay on track. On Friday i went out with the girls and consumed alcohol and a few high calorie snacks. Needless to say when i weighed myself on Sunday i had lost 3 pounds.

So don't beat up yourself when you have strayed a little.

Safe Places for Trigger Foods

If you've eliminated foods while losing because you fear you can't stop eating, reintroduce them in a safe place. If chocolate pie is your favorite nemesis, have a piece at a restaurant. It is unlikely you will order a second one!

Tell It!

No matter what comes always think outside the box. As long as you are in the box, you will never see what is on the other side. I learned to not eat at my desk, but every twenty minutes get up and walk around the desk or to the water fountain. My desk (box) should not be my mantle, but my footstool.

Chronic headaches are a symptom of dehydration. Just another reason to get your 8 glasses a day. :)

Celebrate the non-scale victories!

Find something every day that you can be proud of that doesn't involve the number on the scale. What's better today than it was a week ago? A month ago?? A year ago???
