I keep a 16 oz glass next to my kitchen sink. Every time I pass the kitchen sink I fill up the glass and drink it all down. So with the time I am in the kitchen during meal times I easily down 2-3 of these glasses at each meal. Also, when a craving comes on I have made it habitual to reach for my glass next to the kitchen sink instead of heading to the fridge!

i have found that if i let a few close friends know that i am working on myself, i am more motivated and positive with the situation and more apt to stay on track. When i didn't tell anyone, and attempted to do it myself, friends didn't know and offering me a large piece of cake or donut was nothing. Now that those close friend know that i'm working on myself, they don't offer me the big piece of cake but offer encouragement instead. Keep those close friends closer during this time.
Friend's support is a great way to lose weight. They are great motivators and positive influences in your journey.
