Keeping a food journal!!
I started my diet in 2/09 with WW and have lost 33 lbs since then. It may not seem like much, but I can't do much physical exercise due to various arthritic and nerve damage. The food journal is what keeps me going. When I don't track, I don't lose. It makes me aware of what I put in my mouth.

Snacks are am important part of a Healthy Diet and Exercise Program. They provide you with the energy needed to support you bodies need throughout the day.
It's not only important to find snacks you like but to find a wide arrainge of calorie ranges.
I have 35, 40, 65, 70, 100, 110, 125, and 140 calorie snacks that I eat on a routine basis. This enables me to mix and match snacks based upon my over all caloric needs and it allows for a lot of variety.
I find it very satisfying that at the end of a day where I've eaten to the upper end of my caloric range that I can have a 35 and 40 calorie snack on hand as it satisfies my needs on a physical and phsychological level. Diversify your snacks and enjoy.
