The tried-and-true habits that have helped you lose weight the right way.
If I think I'm hungry, and it's not snack time or meal time,
I eat an apple before anything else!!!!!!!!
If I'm away from home or just can't get to the computer, I use my cell phone to save my meals as a memo or sometimes go the extra mile and actually email it to myself. It's also helpful to include nutritional info if it's available.
I bought a bathroom scale on clearance and it happened to be red. (How many people have RED bathrooms?) I have a lot of red in my kitchen so it gave me the idea... why not keep the scale in the kitchen? It's so thin and lightweight it fits right in a drawer by my FRIDGE. Coincidence? I think not!
After going to a restaurant, ordering an entrée which looks healthy, and then going home to read nutrition data, only to become angry with the restaurant for "tricking me," I have decided to read the nutrition data before going to the restaurant, so that I can make better choices.
before going for that extra bit of whatever snack youre eating... savor the last one/bite/bit and drink a glass of water after, if youre satisfied, you don't need any more!
Drinking a good quality tea with a bit of sugar instead of drinking soda is very helpful. In summer caffeinated or decaf iced tea is especially nice ^_^
Plan meals for a week at a time--and more than just dinner! Plan breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even snacks if you want to. This makes you less likely to cheat or eat junk. You can also "build in" times for eating things like birthday cake--eat light that day so you can enjoy the treat guilt-free!
Eat a tablespoon of natural peanut butter and 1/2 cup of cottage cheese before bed!
Pick a time after dinner and don't eat after this time. Drink water!
