Bad day? Blow your calories? No problem. You can push the reset button anytime. If I've gone off track, whether it's for a month or a meal, I literally stop, take a moment to breathe deeply, and imagine myself pushing a giant RESET button. The image lets me release what I've done and move forward.
I love to set my mood with candles and soft instrumental music as I prepare to meditate and visualize my mood, goals and activities. I first read a Bible verse or inspirational thought before beginning♥
Block that binge! Keep some healthy, balanced frozen dinners on hand to use when you feel stress and need to block a binge beginning.
Eating oatmeal every morning help me with my weight and keep me full until lunch.
Eating every two hours, as directed by my physician, stablizes my blood sugar levels.
A great snack for combating cravings, uping my protein and fiber intake is two Metamucil cookies spread w 1 teaspoon crunchy peanut butter on each cookie. & 8 oz water
I chew sugarless gum after I eat, It freshens my breath and is my cue that mealtime is over.
All I can say is portion control! It is important! I eat 50% veggies and fruits, 25% protein ( fish, chicken, etc...) and 25% whole grains.... I have lost and kept it off this way! Oh yeah! Lots and lots of water to go with it!!!!
Fiber is the name of the game and keeps you fuller longer. An apple a day fills the bill!
When I have a dinner party I don't prepare gooey fancy like I used to. Instead I make vegetable crudities with a Spark recipe dip. I have green tea and sparkling water . I let friends bring alcohol. The main course is a spark recipe such as baked flounder and the fixings. Jem
