I hate vegetables, however since I have started eating greens regularly every morning (green smoothies) my bs has never been lower. I used to be in the 300s now its pretty consistently around 125-155. By filling up on green vegetables the carbs aren't even a concern.

Put your ice cream in a cone! I always tend to serve up more than just one serving (1/2 cup? yeah right!) but you can only fit so much in a cone, and it makes it more fun and tastier too! Plus, it helps me resist the temptation to top it with chocolate, cherries, etc... that could get a lil too messy!
Waffle cones are my favorite, and only 50 calories each. (Plus, it makes it harder to go back and fill up your bowl for more- because you've already eaten it! :) Edy's Light Caramel Delite ice cream is a great combination, btw.
Making a vegetable soup and eating it with a meal really helps make you feel full and its so yummy. I added a dollop of daisy fat free sour cream and a splash of tapitia. That's how i lost the 85 pounds I lost 5 years ago, which I spent the last 3 years finding- back on track and excited about being healthy again!306
