Calorie Buster

Watching those calories? Here's a crowd pleaser! and no prep needed!
Shoprite (and I'm sure other supermarkets) carries a 40 calorie (no added sugar) fudge-pop. Great for those snack attacks (or planned). My freezer is well stocked with them.
Enjoy!! emoticon

Don't get lax - weigh yourself each week

My weight had stayed stable for over a year, and I did start to get lax. Eating a bit more on a regular basis, and not weighing myself regularly. In fact I started to feel reluctant about weighing myself (touch of the ostrich, this is a real red light!) Result, I put on 3 kilos. Not so much you say, but it just wouldn't have happened if I'd kept up with the weigh ins and acted. Don't make the same mistake as me.

Get Rid of Your Old Clothes

The best thing I did for maintenance was to get rid of all my old clothes. I did wear them loose for a while but then when I started buying new clothes I got rid of them and never looked back. I had lost weight before and kept the old clothes and ended up having to wear them again. I think not wanting to spend the money buying big clothes is a great motivator. emoticon

Resisting Temptation at the Office

There is always food being brought in to the office and in Dec. it is even worse. I have found I can resist the temptation by having a constant reminder why I am passing by those cookies or chocolate. I have a snorkling trip planned for Mar. '13 and I also know if I start eating alot of unhealthy food it will effect my gall bladder. It is just a matter of remembering that when I am tempted. I do allow myself a treat once in a while but then it is strictly limited only 2 pieces no exceptions!

5 rules

1. Weekly Friday weigh in. 5lbs up means I go into cut back mode
2. Exercise moderately
3. Monday to Friday: I watch what I eat pretty carefully, and allow myself one samll treat per day. Weekends I relax and eat what I want (within reason!), have a few glasses of wine
4. A key piece of clothing - a pair of well fitting jeans - if they start feeling tighter, action is required!
5. Drinks: I only drink water, green tea and a coffee in the mornings. Well, not counting the wine that is!

Start with zero calories

I start my day with coffee made with the zero calorie sweetener "Stevia in the Raw." Every little bit of calorie savings helps. emoticon

Keep warm!

Staying warm prevents me from eating to get warm. In this way, my favorite comfy sweatshirt, cardigan, and even dolphin blanket are essentials for weight management around my house. As winter approaches, make sure you have non-food ways to stay warm.
