A little presentation flare will help you feel not deprived, but worthy of delicious healthy fare.

I spent about $20 on a set of pretty white ceramic square salad plates at Kohl's (Food Network brand). I use them for all my meals. One, because everything looks tastier on a pretty plate. And two, since I bought salad plates instead of dinner plates, I eat a lot less even if the plate is full!!
I hit a plateau that lasted 6 months, and I wanted to give up! So, I gave myself a new goal: 2 months to get back in gear before my vacation in May. I started "Insanity" exercise program, got a HR monitor, and am tracking everything. It totally renewed my motivation, and I'm finally losing again!
The Insanity exercise program is pretty intense cardio, and the eating plan is pretty basic: 5 small meals throughout the day.
