Grazing throughout the day has been my success. Each morning I pack a bag with fruits, veges, 1/4 cup cottage cheese or any other dairy, Some source of whole wheat like Wheat Thins (you can have 10 in a serving). Then I take this back where ever I go. If I am super hungry I can eat the bag all at once or I can graze on it throughout the day. Doing this allows me to eat healthy and stay satisfied. I have lost 40 pounds doing this.
Thinly slice Cucumbers,Tomatoes,Green Peppers in rounds.Add a pinch of Black Pepper and Mustard Powders to a fat free Spread and mix well.Spread on slices of Bread of choice,place the sliced Veggies on top and cover with another slice.Cut in triangles and enjoy a light and healthy Snack anytime.
If you are happy, you cannot be bitter. I have never seen a bitter person happy or a happy person bitter. You are only as happy as you make up your mind to be. Be thankful for every thing you have, instead of bitching about what you do not have. Smile you are worth it!!!!!
I work in a high stress environment. We have food everywhere. Today I made a decision that when I am tempted to walk by and pick up something, I would think of my goal weight and how far I have to go. I was able to walk right on past.
Instead of buying the 4oz cups of sugar free pudding, lowfat cottage cheese, sugar free jello etc, i bought some 4 oz glad ware containers. i buy the large containers of cottage cheese & make my own jello 7 pudding and put them in the gladwary containers. it is a lot cheaper.
You know what I mean...you are putting things away after a meal and there's a handful of olives, or a few slices of tomato, one little bit of leftover peas, maybe one solitary slice of pie or one dollop of whipped cream left over. You do not have to "clean up" the serving dishes to avoid putting away a single serving. I have to remind myself at every meal that every bite "extra" I take still counts on my daily calorie goals.
