On your mark...get set...eat!

I set my phone to beep me every 2-3 hours so that I remembered to eat. After a couple of weeks, my stomach was my alarm. now, whenever I feel myself slipping back to fewer but bigger meals, I start setting my alarm again

Remembering to eat

When I started my weight loss journey, 50 lbs ago in Oct '09, one of the biggest hurdles I had was getting out of the 3 square a day habit. I now eat 5-6 smaller meals (150-200 cal) so that my system never gets overwhelmed at one time.

Tasty water!

We all know that we need to drink lots of water. It gets really boring after a while!!!! Add a packet of lemon crystals to get a change of taste. Also, adding a squeeze of orange or a few strawberries also gives you a refreshing change.

Frozen grapes:Healthy and portion controlled

By eating frozen grapes as a snack, I'm eating healthy. Because they are frozen, you can't eat them fast and mindlessly; this is important if you are diabetic and trying to control sugars. emoticon

Hungry? Chew a piece of sugar-free gum first

When I get a craving, which is usually for a sweet, I first look at my watch to figure out if it's time to eat. If I figure it's just a craving, I grab a piece of gum. Satisfies my sweet tooth imediately!
