Zipper baggies are your friend!

When I bring something home from the store that has more than one serving to a box (snacks/cereals/etc.), I get out my zipper bags & measuring cups and pre-measure individual servings into bags. I keep the bags in the original box, so they're easy to grab, use AND stick to your portion control!

sbliminal

I need all the help I can get, and that means subliminal too. I like to sing some phrases while I walk/jog suck in the gut and tighten the butt and going down down down ...down to (desired wt #) pounds. I don't consciously think about after a while but the subconscious still gets the message

When I wake up in the morning the first thing I do is drink a big glass of water. I also drink water before and after I meal. Helps me stay full and hydrated all day.

Timely Sweets

Do not avoid sweets completely.

Make a golden rule: never eat sweets when you are hungry.

Eat a healthy meal always first, then if craving a sweet - have just one each day before 6 pm.
Decrease eating sweets over time - every two days, every three days, and so on.

To help decrease appetite

When I still feel hungry after a snack and it"s too soon for a meal, I drink a large glass of ice water with a tablespoon of lemon juice.

Food Scale

I couldn't live without my food scale, I weigh everything I eat. Yes, sometimes it's a pain, but it's very helpful when it comes to recording my nutrition intake. I've found many prepackaged foods to be inaccurate in their nutritional listings!!

Green Tea

Drinking lots of water is not one of my strong points, but I do find that drinking diet green tea with citrus (I get mine at Costco) helps to keep my weight going down.

Easy Breakfast

I have always had a really hard time eating anything in the morning. For the past month, I've been having a Click espresso protein shake & a Vitamuffin. Easy, quick and since I love iced coffee, it works for me. I feel a lot better, too!
