Tighten the Belt

I bought a new, smaller belt when I started having success. The tightened belt reminds me that I am full and I should not give up.

Rust and Lime Stains

If you have well or hard water your bathroom is probably
prone to these. I have found using a damp pumice stone
removes these stains quickly. ( Unless you have let them
build up), then prepare yourself for some scrubbing.

walk instead

I used to always go for lunch with friends. This was a great way to visit and stay in touch. Since starting Sparkpeople, I've swapped my lunches with friends to walks with my friends. We still get in a good visit and burn those calories too!

Fitting in exercise

I keep a set of light weight free weights by my computer. Then when I'm waiting on a download or for the computer to boot up I do a few arm workouts with them. I can work in quite a few sets!

Tracking Calories

I put in what I am going to eat before I actually do. This way I am less likely to eat anything extra because I don't want to add more food or servings after I have visited that page.

Save time

Go to a restaurant only once a week

I have lots more success controlling my weight when I eat my own food and avoid restaurants. My current goal is to only eat at a restaurant once a week, and no more. Most of the time it is just a lunch item, too, which helps, because they tend to be smaller portions.
