Carrots (or other favorite vegetable)

Keep a bag of baby carrots in the very front of your refrigerator. Whenever you open the door (for any reason) you have to eat at least one. This will help you get your vegetables in for the day and keep your appetite curbed. If you don't like carrots or want a change, try other vegetables.

Shop the Salvation Army for a Great Wardrobe

I have had so much fun shopping for clothes there because you can find things that are not in the usual chain stores. No worry about the high prices, and they even have a half-price day. I only have to restrain myself from buying TOO much. Fun!

Pork Roast

Kroger's has Hormel pork roasts on sale this week - BOGO. They are small/large enough that one will feed 3 of us for a meal. I roasted mine in my Pampered Chef covered cooker for 2 hours and it is falling apart - I've shredded it and added a little barbecue sauce - now I only have to heat it up!

Curbing needless eating

I plan out my food, including snacks, first thing in the morning and put it in my SparkPeople nutrition tracker. I print it out and put it on the fridge. I titled it, "Are You Really Hungry?" It makes me thing before eating--if I'm not really hungry, I forgo the snack until I am hungry.

Help with Portion Control

About a year ago I stopped putting bowls of food out on the dinner table. Instead, I serve up each person's plate of food in the kitchen and take that to the table. It's so much easier to resist that second helping when it's not right there in front of you

CALORIE INTAKE AND VARIETY OF WHAT YOU EAT!

It has been suggested that going up or down in your calorie intake will help you break a plateau or if you find that you are eating a lot of the same things then mix it up a bit and see if that doesn't help.
