Get to Know Your Bowl

Learn how one serving of cereal looks in your bowl. There may be a line or a part of the pattern that equals one cup. Saves you time and dirty measuring cups while making sure you've got accurate portions for tracking. Do the same with your water and milk glass. Learn the 8oz mark and 16 oz spot.

Small Bites

When trying to eat less food or less of a temptation cut it into REALLY small pieces -even chocolate- I have these diet bars that are sweet but good for me but TINY so I cut up even smaller. I feel satisfied at the end rather than eating the 3 bites and it's gone. Use this with all meals and snacks

Know YOURSELF and your TEMPTATIONS!!!

On this weight loss journey,I 've learned alot about myself and HOW and WHEN I eat. One of my downfalls is eating whatever sweet treat there is {or used to be more of} ALL AT ONCE!! I don't recognize the "Save some for LATER" rule! So,when I NEED to eat dessert, I share with my husband and toddler.

Keep an eye on medication levels as you lose weight

I began to feel light-headed and faint sometimes after losing weight although I was eating and exercising in the recommended ranges. In fact, my improved health meant that I was over-medicated and my doctor reduced my prescribed medication to my new weight and metabolism. Great news!!

Remember your water

Since drinking 8 cups of water is so important in losing weight I will fill a 2 liter(8.4 cups) plastic bottle with water in the morning and take it to work or put it in the fridge so I always know where I stand on my water intake. (ex. halfway through the day, I make sure 1/2 of the bottle is gone....

Water does wonders

Drink water, lots of it. Before you start to eat your meal drink some water. Then while you are eating drink more water. It is hard to get off of flavored drinks but once you get use to having water with your meal you will notice how much less calories you are taking it by just drinking water!

DRINK WATER!

Drinking eight glasses of water really helps. Sometimes your body can get thirst and hunger mixed up. When you feel hungry between meals, try drinking water first, wait ten minutes and if you are still hungry, have a healthy snack.
