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.

Feeling Full Faster

I did this whenever I was eating one of my required 3 meals for the day. Gulp down as much water as possible in between bites. The key was to drink as much water I could before the next bite. This made me full really fast, even before everything was finished on my plate.

Honesty truely is the best policy!

Be honest with yourself! Sometimes I would take a few bites of something (cookies,cake,chocolate!) and the devil on my shoulder would tell me I don't need to write it down...luckily the angel on the other shoulder has become louder and I started to really hold myself accountable.

Weight Loss Secret of Success - Work Smart, Not Hard

A secret to success for me has been maintaining a daily caloric intake LESS than what SP suggests. I don't do it on purpose but have found most often that I am not hungry enough to consume the 1400-1700 calories each day. This allows me to be a little more lazy with regard to exercise.
