More Calories Early

For years I chose to eat a reasonable breakfast, light lunch and made my evening meal the main meal of my day. By switching the pattern to heavier meals early in the day and light in the evening (no starches generally) I lost weight. After a few weeks this pattern curbed evening snacking too.

Help Others and Share Positive Affirmations

I find that by helping others and sharing in their successes, it helps me too. I encourage people by being positive. As the saying goes "misery loves company", but I'm a firm believer that it works the other way around, tenfold!

When I feel hungry between meals

Motto to live by...

I have my favorite motto posted in my office and it says "Nothing tastes as good as THIN feels!" I have a look at it whenever there is birthday cake in the kitchen at work or when co-workers bring in goodies to share!

Stay with the plan

I find that if I stay with the plan, regardless of the results that I am always better off. Sometimes it doesn't look like I'm making progress at the time, but when I look back I can see that I have. Stay the course!
