Try on those clothes that are too tight

Every day I try on something that doesn't fit me the way it used to. Not being able to zip up one of my favorite dresses - that I wore only just a few years ago - is all the motivation I need to stay on track!

Eat Slowly When Alone

When eating by self: set fool for meal aside so you won't overeat. Have a few bites, then do something else (email, chore, etc). Come back and have a few more bites, but take a drink of water first. Repeat until food is gone or until you don't want more.

(Re)Boot Camp!

Like a particular SP bootcamp so much that you're actually a little sad when it ends? Keep going! Most bootcam[ groups stay very active long after the original challenge ends, complete with day-to-day videos. I've been doing the jumpstart bootcamp cycle myself four times now!

Ice Cream motivation

Ice cream is the one thing that I think "I can't live without". I save ~170 calories so that I can have a 1/2 cup of ice cream as a treat (everyday) and the little things that come up throughout the day (like cookies at work) don't look as good, knowing that I get to enjoy ice cream w/o cheating.

Use A Small Plate

Use a small plate for every meal. I use the salad plate instead of the dinner size plate. I find I am satisfied after this smaller meal and don't feel deprived at all. It's really shown me that we don't need as much food as we think we do! emoticon

No More Sodas

The best thing that I ever did was give up soft drinks. That was an instant and drastic change in my eating habits. It also made me realize that if I could relinquish my Achilles Heel, I could do anything. Give up your biggest worst habit first and the rest will come easier.
