Words to live by; You can always do one more thing. You can always wait a while for that snack You can always take one less bite Never lay down when you can sit up, sit down when you can stand up, stand still when you can walk, walk when you can hop, skip, jump or run. One little step at a time is painless and it'll get you there.
Dining out - Save half your portion BEFORE you eat
When ordering your food at a restaurant, ask for a To Go container at the same time. When your food (and the container) arrives, take half and put it away immediately.
The benefits you gain from this approach: 1. You have a 2nd meal to enjoy later 2. You won't be tempted to eat "everything" at once. 3. You will have cleaned your plate just like "mom" wants you to!
