Sometimes a "bite" is all we need. If my children are eating something scrumptious and I'm feeling tempted, I will enjoy a heaping tablespoon full and walk away from the pot. There are times when I feel "in control" enough to do this and others, I don't...it's trial and error but has helped me tremendously. We don't always need to "overeat" our favorite foods. We may just need a bit or a piece or a bite. 41
I have found the number 1 secret to loosing weight. This has not been something I just came up with. I found this after years of trial and error. Not just out of the blue. I know you're thinking, who is this guy, what does he know? That could be asked of anyone. I am just a guy who knows.
The number one secret to loosing weight is to "Track you Food Intake". You need some type of place to put the information. Paper, SmartPhone, Internet. Find what is right for you, but track it. It goes without saying that you must have a plan. Eating anything you want is not good. SparkPeople is.
By watching the Biggest Loser or seeing others struggle and hate what they are doing is no way to live. May take some trial and error but have fun and appreciate that you are doing.
Find what you like to do by trying new things. Get to a place where you think "I get to go for a walk!" instead of "I have to go for a walk." . Do you like to be forced to do anything and if you are do you normally keep want to do that? Challenge yourself and have fun while doing it!
