If you don't wanna get what you've always got, do something different! For me, it involved thinking small. * Use smaller plates and bowls.
* Get smaller clothes.
* Order smaller portions in restaurants.
* Exercise in small bursts throughout the day.
* Small rewards for small victories!
Setting small goals and celebrating them has made a huge transformation in my life. And shaking my head no when restaurants ask me if I want a large has helped in more ways than one. If I don't want to be LARGE, don't eat large. Now I just smile sweetly and say: ""No thanks, I'm a small !"

When am doing strength training, in my mind's eye I split my reps into a three-quarter. E.g. By the time I get to rep 9 in a 12 reps exercise, I say to myself 'you have just 3 left'. Also when I am using the clock I think small by looking at the seconds hand and I say to myself 'it will soon roll over to 60'. By this I keep myself going.
Your blood sugar drops so low, your hunger gets out of control. You do need to eat & eat often in order to both lose weight & control weight gain. You won't have large fluctuations in your blood sugar if you eat small snacks that are ready to eat. Make little containers of Almond or walnuts equal to 1 ounce. Cheese 1 ounce, cottage cheese into 1/2 cup sizes, drink water as it influences your level of hunger with 2 ounces of Diet Cranverry juice. Think small, 6 baby carrots, celery, berries!
