Girl Scout Cookies

Thin mints have always been a snare for me. You cannot eat just one.

This year, I made a vow that I would run an extra mile for each cookie that I ate. Even tho DW bought some and put them in the freezer, I have not had one! I hate to run more than I like Girl Scout cookies!

Halfsies

We've all heard we should box up 1/2 of our restaurant dinner beforehand, but if you slice your meat "fillet style" instead of down the middle it will seem like the whole thing is still on your plate.

Smaller sized utensils and plates make small portions look bigger

We always feel like we're depriving ourselves when we eat our small portions of food on full-sized plates. Try puttting your meal on a salad plate and eating it with a small fork and spoon. The meal looks larger (fills up the plate) & takes longer to eat (less food in each fork/spoonful).

Recruit your children!

I have recruited my 14 yr old daughter to walk for an hour with me most evenings and my 10 yr old son to walk for 30 minutes with me in the morning. emoticon

Follow these steps

1.Make sure to eat breakfast every morning, something with dairy & protein. 2. Avoid all sweets. I've realized if I eat any sugar it slows down my loss, even if it falls within my calorie range. 3. Lastly, make sure to drink 8-10 glasses of water a day.

logging food everyday

I have found that I have more success if I log what I eat. I try to make sure that I log everything that goes into my mouth. Even if I over eat.

Alcohol

No matter what my friends say "Alcohol" is not good while you're trying to loose weight, I drink EVERY WEEKEND." I'm finally saying "no more alcohol" at least while I try to loose weight, I went from 165 to 236 lbs in two years and part of it was the alcohol!

Log in every single day! Just do it!

Set a time, anytime, just make sure you do it BEFORE you go to bed. Make it one of your goals that has to be addressed every single day.

Don't Let Yourself Get Too Hungry

It is easier to satisfy a little hunger than a great big hunger. Especially when you are first starting to lose weight, eating a small amount of food every couple hours really helps. A snack with protein, carb, and a little fat is ideal. Not letting myself get too hungry helps with maintenance, too.

Fiber

I count fiber instead of calories. It helps me make better food choices and keeps me full. Plus it keeps me reading labels between products. Several different brands of the same item have very different fiber counts.
