Buy everyday bread

Hi, in France, bread is an everyday meal. And fresh bread is so better ! emoticon So I buy bread only for two or three days, and go out to buy some fresh one by feet : it makes me walk 15 minutes ! emoticon

Greek yogurt for extending salad dressings.

Use non fat greek yogurt to extend salad dressings or salsa to add volume - not fat.

4 Sticks of Butter = 1 lb. !

You may have only lost one pound or perhaps even 1/2 a pound but when you think of it visually - 4 Sticks of Butter = 1 lb. Well, for one, that keeps me going !! Think about what it looks like or holding 4 sticks or squishing it in your hands. 4 sticks are a lot, now kiss them goodbye!

10 minutes of daily exercise...will help you shrink your size

There is no substitute for Perserverance and Consistency.
Another thing I learnt in Spark, more from people in my age group.You need to move, to improve. emoticon emoticon emoticon
I know do chair exercises, chair yoga and stretches under the watchful eyes of a trained physiotherapist. I have moved from being wheel chair bound to using a cane to walk in a matter of 6 months. Lost about 55 to 56 lbs, more because of a debilitating infection, Dengue. Now maintenance is the challenge.

no more stir fry

One of the greatest tips for success. I love Asian food and stir fry adding all the ingredients together, veggies, meat, rice/noodles. Several years ago my dietitian suggested I start with vegetables first, salad or cooked and then go on to protein and carbs. It changed my way of eating and has become a habit for the lat 2 years. emoticon

Cut your Brillo/SOS pads before using

With a lot of easier to clean surfaces and pots/pans, I don't need a Brillo pad very often. It gets all rusty and gooey with soap before its next use. So now I cut the pad into fourths and just use a small piece and toss it. Since I buy them at the Dollar store and there's 10 in a box, each section costs about 2.5.

Sneaking in steps

With the hot and humid summer I have a hard time getting moving. To sneak some walking into my shopping trips I make sure to walk around the perimeter of the store before I start shopping. If I have lots of errands to do those steps really add up! emoticon

Tuna

It's a phenomenal protein. Lean, healthy, portable. I could be anywhere (work, home) and eat healthy protein with good fats to help satisfy my hunger and help prevent a fast-food run.

munching

I have a terrible urge to munch on something crunchy! I used to eat chip and switched to veggies but sometimes I get tired of veggies! so I started crunching ice cubes! zero calories and it really helps with the munching motion that I seem to crave! keeps you cool in the summer too!
