The tried-and-true habits that have helped you lose weight the right way.
If you will chew tediously slowly, savor each bite and put your fork down between bites, you will give your brain enough time to know that you've satisfied your hunger before you overeat.
When I have no calories to spend and I need something in my stomach *right now* I reach for a 1/4 cup to 1 cup of crispy, juicy jicama (yam bean) with a twist of citrus and a dash of paprika.
I don't like the taste of water! Adding Crystal Light only hurts my throat b/c of the Aspartame. I buy lemons and limes - just to throw them away b/c they are old. I add True Lemon to my water and I can't believe how easy it is to drink my 8 glasses of water! It works perfect for me!
use smaller plates so your portions look bigger!
I put "H20" on my to do list at work and keep it highlighted. When I refer to my list thought out the day, I am reminded to grab my water bottle and take a big long drink or two.
Think of being overweight as a health problem that needs treatment rather than as a condition for which you are to blame!!!

Don't just reward yourself for the big goal, reward yourself for the small goals that lead up to the big goal.
My best little secret is how I lost weight and keep it off. It is very simple really, use a dessert plate instead of a dinner plate. Only take 1 spoon full of each item and 1 piece of meat each meal. No seconds. Cut down on starches and sugars. Eat more vegetables and fruits. You will loose weight.
Walking faster, whether exercising, shopping, or just around the house will burn more calories, make you more effecient, and rev up your metabolism.
