My secret motivator when I'm tempted to overeat

I discovered this secret recently while setting up for strength training. I use 2 8-lb dumbbells and 2 5-lb dumbbells -- just about the amt of weight I've lost so far.

Well, one morning, I carried all 4 dumbbells in my arms and could barely move. I realized this was what it had been like for me just 10 months ago. I was winded and moving very slowly.

SO...when I'm tempted, I remind myself of where I've been and carry my dumbbells around the house. THAT takes my mind off of the food!

Craving Comfort Foods

I keep Smart Ones/Healthy Choice versions of "comfort foods" like Mac&Cheese, Tuna Noddle Gratin, 3-Cheese Ziti Marinara, or Turkey & Dressing, stocked in my freezer, so when I have a craving, I can "indulge" without blowing my diet or over-eating!

Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet Cookbook

I love comfort food, and this book is full of delicious recipes. I ignore the meal plans and success stories and skip right to the recipes, and I even sometimes manage to make them a little lighter than it calls for (i.e. turkey instead of beef)
