Whiten your smile

If you find it hard to stay strong during evening 'snack attacks', try whitening your teeth. When the craving starts slap on the strips (like Crest Whitestrips). You keep them on for 1/2 hr. By then you've probably gotten past your craving-moment...& now your teeth are whiter! Smile!

Refined sugar

I cut things that included refined sugars such as candy and white breads and I really loss noticeable weight. Now you just have to figure out how to add it back in sparingly without gaining it back.

Secret Weapon: Almonds


My favorite snack, when I am starving and crabby, I find that if I eat about ten or twelve UNSALTED almonds, it is a great pick-me-up with only maybe 85 calories approximately...and it satisfies, plus it gives you some protein fuel. I pre-count them and put them in a little container .

Focus on What You Can Have

I stop focusing on what I can't have and instead focus on what I can have. It helped not creating cravings or feeling deprived because I looking at what I can't have. I'm surprised at how much I can have and make wise choices.

Walking to lose weight

I never will park close to a store when I shop. I park a good distance from the entrance. Every bit of walking will help. Try it?
