Every time I am motivated to lose weight there are times when I still want a treat! If I tell myself "you can't have that" then it becomes all I want. So go ahead and enter a serving of your favorite treat by using the "Add a Food" feature to the right of where you enter your food eaten for the day. When you decide you must have the treat, you can easily count it for the day and not feel guilty about it!

On Trick or Treat night I keep a pack of gum in my pocket as I'm handing out all the "not so diet friendly" candy. It usually takes 2-3 pieces for the full 2 hours of trick-or-treating, but it keeps me from mindlessly eating from the candy bucket. 431
When I hit a plateau on my diet, I will change what I eat and the way I exercise. Mixing it up will jump-start your body onto a new level and trick it into thinking the diet process has begun anew. A week or so later the weight starts to come off again and what a treat. 192
