Don't give up....

keep pushing through it, continue to eat right, exercise and do the things you were doing before you plateau. This to will pass and you will be proud you stayed on track to get through it!

Healthy Eating for Kids

My youngest (6) is a very picky eater she would eat Mac & Cheese, Grilled Cheese, or PBJ exclusively if I let her. So recently I have been letting her help me in the kitchen, measuring, peeling, stiring etc and now she will eat the things that she helps make including salad !!!!!

Kleenex Boxes, TP Rolls & Paper Towel Rolls have their place

The plastic bags that you get from the store & you don't know where to store them. Well, use an empty kleenex box. You can stuff the bags inside & you're able fit quit a bit in the boxes. You can then place the box in a draw or under the sink. TheTP rolls & paper towel rolls I use to organize extension cords and wires. I measure each one and gab a roll and write the size on them. When I'm done I put them inside a see thur plastic bin.

Clean Out Your Storage Areas First

I started with my pantry.
1. Took everything out of pantry
2. Threw out all out-dated food items
3. Put items I never use and never would use in giveaway box.
4. Painted pantry shelves white (makes items easy to see)
5. Put items I use the often in the most handy place.
6. Put rest of items in place.
Nothing like a clean pantry. Much easier to find what I needed. emoticon

Plan your Meals in advance

When I plan what I'm going to eat, it ensures that I don't overeat. And when you write what you eat, EAT IT! That way you won't reach for something that's not healthy. Otherwise, you'll want to beat yourself up about it. And you don't have to do that. By writing down what you eat, your making a promise to yourself that your going to eat healthy for the day. This is a lifestyle change. You have to start somewhere. And, it also helps to plan your meals the night before or a few days in advance.

Walk or Ride Instead of drive

My kids and I have made the rule (during daylight hours and no heavy rain or snow) we don't drive within our town. We walk, or use our bikes if it is more than 10-12 blocks. Adds exercise and saves money.

Stacked Teflon pan saver - coffee filters

I stack my frying pans (and all my other pans too) inside of each other to save cupboard space. I put a coffee filter between the pans so that they don't scratch each other up. This also helps me (and my husband) know where the clean pan goes back in the cupboard stack.

Lemon Scrubber

Dip a lemon half in borax and use it as a scrubber for the bathroom, kitchen counters, cupboards, and appliances -- any surface that is likely to have both alkali and acidic dirt.
To remove rust or food stains on countertops, rub a cut lemon over the spot or squeeze fresh lemon juice onto the area and let it sit for up to 30 minutes.

Not a diet

Think of weight loss as a lifestyle change not a diet. It is a lifetime in the works not a short period of change.
