There's a reason the old saying is "fat and happy." I find that when I'm nervous/anxious/upset I won't eat excessively, binge, or have a "cheat" day. Most people are emotional eaters in that they eat when they're done being upset and everything has calmed down. Don't let that happen to you!

My secret for continuing to lose weight is that I eat ENOUGH food. I do not feel deprived.I always eat ENOUGH so that I am not miserable, nor am I uncomfortable. So I'm losing slowly, but still i feel that I am making progress and getting close to my goal.
Do not try to eat TOO LITTLE or you will lose heart and you won't be able to keep going. Figure our your caloric needs.
I found by eating in a salad plate rather than a regular plate I am eating smaller portions and I drink a glass of water which makes me full therefore causing me not to want to eat more than I should. When I am done eating I don't feel stuffed and miserable, rather I am satisfied and very happy.
Some of my favorite things to eat are fruits, vegetables and nuts.
For the slow losers it could be really hard to see the scale not moving because all focus is on weight loss and it made me miserable. But then I shifted my focus. My new focus areas includes consistent exercise, achieving new peaks during my exercises and I am feeling really in control. I am getting lot of compliments too for toning up and glowing skin.
