Carry your lost weight

When you loss weight, lets say 10 lbs. Get a 10 lb bag of potatoes and carry it around with you. You'll see what a 10 lb loss feels like.

Do a Quick Set of Exercises Before you Eat Anything

Before I let myself eat anything, meal or snack, I make myself do 12-15 reps of some exercise (situps, bicep curls, etc.). It helps me stop grazing by giving me a few seconds to think if I really want the food, and burns a few extra calories even if I do!

Every loss matters!!!

1/4 a pound loss after working hard all week does not sound like a lot. BUT take a stick of butter and put it under your chin. WOW! a quater of a pound makes a big difference. Celebrate every loss not matter how big OR small!

Sure way to not over-eat

When you know you are full but want to keep eating anyway take salt, ketchup or even water and smother your food in it. Make it so nasty you couldn't stand to eat anymore.

Drinking water

I know it's not a secret to drink the recommended 64 oz of water a day, but what I do a few minutes before I go to bed, I drink another 8-16 oz of water. In a way, I am doing a cleansing when I get up in the morning. It helps.

Help with Portion Control

About a year ago I stopped putting bowls of food out on the dinner table. Instead, I serve up each person's plate of food in the kitchen and take that to the table. It's so much easier to resist that second helping when it's not right there in front of you
