Put half of it Away

If you happen to order something that you wish you hadn't, such as a fattening burrito, cut it in half and put one of the halves in the fridge for the next day. That way you won't be tempted to eat the whole thing and you'll probably fill up with the smaller portion anyway.

The Secret is realizing - there is no secret!

There isn't a magic pill, a magic eating plan, a magic workout, a magic anything....it is so simple - just eat less, move more...but it is the truly the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life...

DON'T BEAT YOURSELF UP.

ONCE YOU ARE EXERCISING CONSTANTLY AND YOU ARE NOT LOOSING WEIGHT, DON'T BEAT YOURSELF UP BECAUSE YOU MAY BE BUILDING MUSCLES. NOT EVERYONE LOSE WEIGHT THE SAME WAY. KEEP ON DOING WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND ALL WILL BE TAKING CARE OF. MAKE SURE YOU DRINK LOTS OF WATER WHILE EXERCISING.

Metamucil

When I recently started my weight loss plan, my doctor recommended adding 1 heaping tbsp of sugar free metamucil to 8 oz of water and drinking it (quickly), 30-60 minutes before each meal. It has really helped me to eat less at my main meals. The SF Lemonade is our favorite!

TRACK

I have found it is so easy to eat WAY too many calories if I don't write down everything. For me, the BEST thing is to write down ALL the things I will eat, and STICK TO THAT LIST!!!

Wintergreen

I keep a bowl of pink wintergreen mints on the coffee table. I find when I need something sweet, instead of reaching for the chocolate, I pop a couple of those in my mouth and suck on them. They're just sweet enough and the mint cleanses my palate. And they're only 12.5 calories each.

Don't Watch Cooking shows on TV

If you're a foodie like me, don't watch any cooking shows on tv, as they only make you hungry. Watch the learning channel or home and garden tv instead. This way you're not thinking about making that potato salad, but how to clear clutter out of your family room, etc.. emoticon
