Wish-Bone Salad Spritzers

These salad dressings taste great and have only 10-15 calories per serving. I even take a bottle with me in my purse when we eat out so I can enjoy a wonderful salad without stressing over high-calorie/high-sodium salad dressings.

Adding a 3" piece of dried kombu (a dried sea vegetable) will dramatically reduce any gas associated with eating cooked dried beans. Toss the kombu before serving. Enjoy!

WW mini-cheeseburg
er

I tried the new mini's...very, very small. 4 points for one, 8 points for both...I am not sure it wouldn't just be smarter to go ahead and get the junior size version of whatever burger you are craving instead of paying the $$$ for these..I mean, they tasted good, but for the money??

Have a water bottle always around

When I first started, I bought two water bottles, one for the office and one for home. I realized that wasn't enough, so now I have 3; one for the office, one for home, and one I put in my gym bag. I keep them all filled. That way, I am sure I always drink 10-12 cups of water a day.

Weigh in as Reward and Consequence

I weigh myself twice a week; just once on Monday after a weekend of indulgences (consequences and truth) then again on Saturday morning after a week of discipline (reward) -sometimes).

Sharing

I find by just saying the words out loud seem to affirm what I'm doing, for instance if I am going on a long bike ride I tell everyone I know and know that the next time I see them they will ask how did it go ?

Must drink more water...

Get a water bottle that you like. Your bottle can be just as much a part of your outfit as your purse. Then take it with you. If you like looking at it, then you'll like having it around. AND it's easier to keep track of oz, when the size doesn't change. Mine is an orange Nalgene, with a yellow lid!

Just one thing

Taking the first step on this journey is sometimes the hardest part. Pick just one thing that you will commit to doing--tracking your food, or walking 10 minutes, etc.--will help you started and build momentum the right direction. Keep adding one thing at a time, and you won't be so overwhelmed!
