its not really a secret

Drink lots of water. It keeps you full and I find that sipping it through a straw keeps my mouth busy enough that I am not looking for something to eat.

Double Duty Moisturizer

I use my daily face moisturizer with SPF 15 on my hands everyday. The hands often show signs of aging quickly, so why not protect them with the rest of my skin?

Weigh your food to weigh your goal weight!

My food scale sits on the kitchen counter and travels to the table when I am serving family style. It is harder to cheat (you can't mound the measuring cup!) and really helps me keep my portions in check. Most foods can be entered into the food tracker by grams, and portion sizes almost always include a gram equivalent on the label.

Clothes shopping & bras

If you want to buy better quality clothes because they last longer and look better, or you find certain brands are the only ones that fit you well, try looking on Oxfam's second hand store website where you can search for particular brands and sizes, and you can specify brand new items still with tags on, so you can even get decent bras new at reduced cost- the range of sizes varies depending on what's been donated, but I have seen some of the harder to find sizes as well as the standard ones.

Freshen your disposal by eating an orange!

If your garbage disposal is smelling a bit foul, turn on the water, start the disposal, and toss in orange peels one at a time. Larger peels will spin around a few times as they're chopped, helping to remove pieces stuck in there, and the smell will be replaced by the strong smell of fresh orange. When the peels are gone, keep running the disposal and the water for another minute to make sure it's all rinsed.

Water Water Water

Tired of drinking water ... step it up a little, put a few drops of lime or lemon juice in it OR a slice of lime or lemon. You may even want to keep a container of water in your fridge ready to pour; already cold.

Paying cash as much as you can

I took Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University class and one big change I finally made is to pay cash as much as I can. Really, it hurts when you pay cash mentally. So I really avoid spending cash and if I must, I often ask myself - do I really need this? I end up spending less and I think I've saved myself $200 so far in 10 days for not wanting to part way with my hard earned money.

Simply Smashing - Jamba Peach Blackberry Smash fruit sorbet bars

I love these! A lot of flavor packed into 70 calories (2 WW pts)! It's peach sorbet with a tart blackerry swirl. I hope you like them so I can find them in more stores. I got these at Walmart.
