I have actually been doing it for past several months and it really works!! I keep a container of green peppers, celery, carrots in the refrig. Cut, clean, ready to eat. Take a serving in car when I have errands to run. For lunch, I grab a serving of it. Late at night, when I want something, I grab the already to go veggies instead of high calorie item. Secret, don't run out! if low, I make sure I get to store and clean and cut veggies to be prepared.

I have a notebook in Evernote with a separate note for each restaurant I visit and what the best options are for my diet plan in each. I don't write down the "best options" that I wouldn't like either - just what I'd actually order. With my smart phone, I have that custom reference to keep me on track.
Having a plan is half the battle, having it HANDY is the other half.
My only secret is that my husband is doing is gym with me, so his mental help is big for me. So we do 45 minutes 5 times a week, him on his stationary bike and me on my treadmill and watching our favorite programs.
It works for me, and perhaps it'll work for you. I eat 4 meals a day, and for each meal, I make sure to have at least 2 glasses of water; I just take a sip between each bite. By the end of the day, I am able to meet (or go beyond) my water requirement.
Having a 16 oz water bottle helps.
