Put off eating for just 5 minutes

When I am about to have an extra treat that I do need, I put it off, and do something away from the kitchen. For just 5 minutes. Sometimes that is all I need to overcome temptation

Tracking Mindless Eating

On my Nutrition Tracker, I added a category labeled "Mindless Eating." SInce I have committed to tracking everything I eat, this will help me see how many calories I consume without purpose. Scary, huh?

Milk--It Does A Body Good!

Milk has been the secret ingredient in my weight loss recipe for years. Whenever I add on a few pounds or feel sluggish, I replace a meal with cereal and a big glass of milk. It helps me look and feel slim in a short amount of time.

Join the One Pound Club

Rather than becoming discouraged at needing to lose a large amount of weight, simply aim to lose one pound. We all can do that. When you do, celebrate your success then shoot for just one more pound. Every pound lost builds confidence and is an easier target to achieve quickly than losing 20 or 50 or 100 pounds.

Drink!

A couple of times when my weight has stalled, getting religious about my water intake and pushing it to 10 cups a day got things moving again. Also, adding brewed green tea helps give you something to sip on and boosts metabolism with many antioxidants as well.

Think, "Make do"

When I'm trying to lose weight... I go for the smallest amount of food I can eat and be satisfied. For example, If I have a hamburger for lunch, could I "make do" with only one piece of bread instead of 2? If I have to have fast food, could I "make do" with only 1/2 of the fries? It's a fun game and you REALLY save calories! :-)

ALL in moderation

I may not always eat all of the things scientifically proven to promote weight loss - but if I have to pass on the good stuff all of the time, this isn't going to work. A slice of pizza, a piece of chocolate NOT take me down. Denying myself WILL take me down.

I own it

I have to remember, that whatever the scale says...I own it. Whatever foods get recorded...I own it. The exercise done for the day...I own it. If good things take place, there is a reason for that...I own it. The same is true in reverse. Bad results? They are mine. I own them, too.

Think before you eat

I put a saying on my refrigerator: Food is for nurishing the body, activities are for satisfying your emotions.
