I did not take any "before" pictures. I guess I really did not have faith in myself that I would have success. Now, 100 lbs later, I wish I had taken measurements and pictures so I could see how far I have come. So, if you are just starting out, make sure to take measurements and pics!!
Don't think that veggies are just for lunch or dinner...add them to breakfast. Scramble eggs or make omelettes with squash, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, fresh green beans, spinach, or whatever veggie you like. I find that it keeps me much more satisfied!
Instead of using calorie laden (in the form of fat for creamy dressings or sugar for all the others), use hummus as your salad dressing. You will increase the flavor of your salad (that is why you use dressing anyway), and at the same time, bump up the protein and fiber content! Make your own to control the amount of fat!
Do you have a smoothie after your workout? Getting bored? Save some coffee from breakfast, chill it, and use it as the liquid in your smoothie.....add milk, vanilla protein powder, cinnamon, vanilla, stevia....or use chocolate protein powder for a mocha smoothie!
Get tired in the afternoon? Change shoes!
