Get back on track by putting out your skinny clothes or something new you want to fit into again...
Also place a picture of you in your best shape or a motivation picture on your frig so when you are tempted to eat something over your calories take a deep breath and walk away. go for a walk, drink a glass of water, or meditate. By the time you have done that the temptation will be gone.
At Starbucks, the venti Iced Coffee with skim milk is 170 calories, but a venti iced Skinny Latte or Venti Iced Skinny Caramel Macchiato are both lower in calories. Get one of these and make sure to order it skinny (Skim Milk, Sugar Free Syrup) to save calories.
I got the information straight from a Sbucks rep - they venti Iced Coffee comes laden with syrup already in it - and you can't get it without this syrup, it's made that way. Check out my blog post for more info: http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3933255
I gave away all my old "skinny clothes". I am not buying any clothes right now. When I get down to size 10, I am buying a whole new wardrobe9 I am giving away all my clothes that are too big now. That way, If I start to slide up the scale, I have more motivation to get myself back in check
