eat a piece of fruit, or couple of slices of turkey breast every 2 hours between meals, and you will never be hungry when it's time to eat the main meal. Remember, if you sit down to eat " when your hungry" you will devour everything. When you sit down to eat "when your NOT hungry" you will eat only the right portion that you should eat.
Since I have started this way of eating I have lost 30 pounds last year. So, I KNOW this works. :)

Never never let yourself get too hungry & exercise every day
My secret to maintaining my weight is to always plan to eat at certain times so I'm never hungry. Getting over hungry not only makes me eat things that I shouldn't but sometimes gives me headaches. Also, plan exercise every day regardless even if it's only for a short time. I always exercise first thing in the morning and as I am going to sleep I figure out how much time I will spend and still be on time for the rest of my day.
Everyone falls off the wagon at times, but it's not the fact that we fall off but the fact that we get back on, that counts. When you want to come back after time off, think about how far you've already come. Even if you gained back weight, or maybe gained back all and then some, you've still never gone completely back to that old you. You STILL are in the fight to be healthy, and that has to count for something!
If you follow this secret, you won't look at getting/staying healthy as a chore but something that is fun and makes you happy.
