A favorite Weight Watcher Leader once said: :when you're finished your planned food for the day, go to bed, there me more in the morning". I found I often overate late at night because I was tired or upset. Sleep helped resolved both
I have found that drinking lots and lots of water is my key to actuallt loosing weight they say not to drink too much because you can was away vitamines and mineral but it you are eating right then you can never was away anything but fat!!! lol
Each Monday, I'm taking a picture of my scale's digital reading and posting on my Facebook page. It's a great incentive to watch my weekend eating, get exercising, drink water etc Also, as my posts have gone up, more people have made comments and notice, giving lots of support
I had a Tanita health scale with body fat %, water % etc The problem is it was never even close to my weight and never gave the same weight twice in a row. I bought a new flat scale with big digital numbers. The scale always gives same weight and it's easy to see.
I satisfy my chocolate cravings by drinking cocoa (NOT drinking chocolate!). I use a heaped teaspoon of cocoa powder with 2 rounded teaspoons of reduced fat coffee whitener and boiling water instead of milk. Sweeten with Splenda or similar and get your chocolate hit for around 40 calories.
