If I weigh 184 lbs I think to myself that I weigh 182 lbs. I tell myself over and over (in my head) that I weigh 182 lbs until I actually do weigh 182 lbs. Then I tell myself I weigh 180 lbs. etc. You get the idea. Sounds strange, but it works for me.9
Remember that a gallon of water weighs about 7 lbs so weigh before you eat or drink anything for the day. I had joined Jenny Craig several years ago and could not figure out why I had not lost weight and was told this.
Since drinking 8 cups of water is so important in losing weight I will fill a 2 liter(8.4 cups) plastic bottle with water in the morning and take it to work or put it in the fridge so I always know where I stand on my water intake. (ex. halfway through the day, I make sure 1/2 of the bottle is gone.)
