Jam/jelly substitutions

Instead of loading up your peanut butter sandwich with sugary jams, try smashing some grapes or blueberries instead. You save on calories and artificial sugars, and get in some of your daily 5 in the process!

It's okay to start fresh when you're having trouble staying consistent. Sometimes evaluating what isn't working is the next step for continued (or new!) success.

Help resisting temptation

I LOVE chocolate--as a result, I have a hard time making myself stop when I've had a full serving. I started leaving it in places where I have to get up on a step stool to reach, and to my amazement it works! I pull down the tin and grab five pieces and put it back before I eat the treats.

Use the buddy system

You CAN do it! If you didn't think you could, why did you join SP in the first place? Find someone(s) who can help you stay motivated when you are losing hope...whenever I start to get down on myself I remember there are people on this site who lost 100+ pounds...surely I can lose 50!
