I've realized that when I sit down to eat a rice cake with mustard and ham thrown on top... i FEEL like im dieting! So what I try to do is find as many delicious sounding recipes as i can on this site and just watch my portions -- that way I DONT feel like i'm dieting -- i'm just eating this delicious (healthy) meal i cooked!

I hate it when people ask me how my "diet" is going because I'm not on a diet. There is so much negative attached to that word. I find that saying I'm on a journey or lifestyle change is much more positive and easier to stick to. Also, you can't cheat on something your not on. ;)
the 3 day diet I tried at first it claims that you will loose 10 lbs on it ( not true) and not good to lose weight that fast, but wwhat I learned about was proper proportions, and it gives you an idea of what you should be putting in to your body so even when the diet is over I try to eat the way that the diet has shopwn me to believe me on that diet I was NOT hungry, and I got to eat icecream the tuna fish diet get it online eat in variety after your diet247
it says to make sure not to use the diet consistantly as after the 3 days, you to stop but then my advice is to copy the diet by using your diet as a meal plan as to the measurements of your foods and each week say tuesday wednesday and thursday you use the diet eat a variety after
I steer away from the attitude "I'll be glad when this is over!) by reminding myself that it is not a diet, it is a change in lifestyle. It's forever. AND I'm not giving up the "goodies" forever - I'm not giving them up at all. I'm just saying "later" and/or "less."
