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

Water

Drinking 3-4 of my 8oz. glasses of water after I wake up and before my coffee and breakfast, has really kept me on track. I start out feeling full and half my water requirement has been fulfilled for the day.

Smoothies

Smoothies are very healthy and very filling! Just 8oz of fruit juice ( I use diet V8 splash), a cup of fresh or frozen fruit, and about 4 ice cubes. I blend them together in a personal size blender with an ice crusher blade and enjoy!!! Feeling snacky? Make a smoothie!

Look Back to Keep Going Forward

I've found it's most helpful to look at where i was - not where i am. where i was is where i never want to go back to - and it doesn't matter how long it takes me to get where i'm going. as long as my feet keep moving i'll get there in time!

Gum

I am so NOT a gum-chewer. But I am a boredom eater. And I've found that chewing gum helps keep me from mindless eating. So now I keep gum at my desk, where I'm most likely to just nibble on anything I can get my hands on. And it helps! That, and lots of water.
