Hunger is the enemy!

I try to never allow myself to get hungry. I don't force myself to eat snacks in between a meal but if I need one I get one.

food diary

tracking your food is so important. If you don't you are guessing at what you are consuming. Even after reaching goal I am tracking everything. My motto is "you bite it, you write it" emoticon

If there was something that you ate yesterday that you maybe should have avoided or eaten less of, do better today and forgive yourself for your mistakes from yesterday.

Faster Prep

I keep measuring cups, measuring spoons, etc., in a bowl in on my countertop. This makes it easy for me to find the measurer I want, without digging through drawers or dish drainers for them. It makes meal and snack prep much faster for me. A food scale in a handy spot also helps!

Smaller Plates

I found it easy to maintain a lower weight (after dieting) by using smaller plates. I found a very cheap (seasonal) set at K-mart that I've been using year round. By having less room on the plate and making it a rule to not go back for seconds, it's easier to stay within my calorie range!

Bag of Baby Carrots

When I pack my lunch for work, I make sure I include a zipper bag of baby carrots. They're sweet and crunchy and so good for you. You can dip them in hummus or Greek yogurt or anything other type of healthy dip. You can also substitute celery sticks or green pepper.. emoticon

Pistachios

Pistachios are my new go to snack food. Instead of scarfing a bag of chips or buying French fries, I have a serving of pistachios. With 47 nuts to a 150 calorie servings, what's not to love?

Make it your lifestyle

Don't commit to doing anything to lose weight that you're not willing to do for the rest of your life, day in and day out. This will ensure that you stay balanced, moderate, and sustainable in your weight loss.

Grocery store salad bar is my secret weapon for more than salads

I've found that buying fresh vegetables from the grocery store salad bar saves time, money and waste, with the added benefit of boosting my daily fruit and vegetable intake. I fill a container with fresh cut and ready to go items and use these all week for omelets and other dishes.
