Scale

I have the perfect way to know exactly how many ounces are in the food I eat, ....., wait for it, I Weigh IT! I stopped eyeballing my food, the looks the food give me are deceiving. I stopped guessing, and now I am 38 pounds lighter in matter of 3 months. emoticon

Dessert Tea

I have started drinking dessert tea after dinner and while watching tv or reading. My favorite is Stash Chocolate Hazelnut. Add a packet of Splenda and a splash of skim milk and it really does taste like dessert!

My 9-year old son is getting into it, too. We have started having "tea tastings" and keep a big jar filled with various flavors on our kitchen counter. He loves picking out his special tea every night instead of a bedtime snac

Water the showstopper in your fridge

Keep your water in the most beautiful, pitcher you can find. It will serve as a visual reminder each time you open your fridge to drink your water. It also lets everyone friends and family know that drinking your water is important and it takes center stage.
P.S. its also a wonderful way to get your kids to drink more water, in my house everyone loves to drink out of the pretty pitcher and my kids even refill it when it is empty or remind me to. emoticon

Don't give up in the middle of the day

Sometimes if I slip up by eating something I'm not supposed to (like cookies or candies), I throw away the rest of the day and think 'I'll just start again tomorrow' and end up overeating. Instead of this, look at the rest of the day as a new day,

Bites, Licks and Tastes Count!

It is so easy to forget about counting the Bites, Licks and Tastes...those little samples eaten unmindfully while cooking. To really be able to visualize what I'm doing, every so often I will take the food I would have sampled and placed it in a baggie that I refrigerate. I do this for a week, adding to the accumulation from the previous days. It is a real eye-opener and helps keep me aware of the "hidden calories" I've may have actually had. This is especially helpful during the holidays
