Visual Snacks

Keep a visual snack tower of real mini cups of natural applesauce on counter along with tin of cinnamon. When you are grazing for something to gobble, it's obvious.

Constant exercising

I'm addicted to exercise. My intense exercise is always in the mornings. Then I walk later, and do some heavy housework.
There are 3 mornings a month that I have scheduled meetings. It really bothers me. My weight is down. That's good for my bones and overall health.

Record your good choices

Every time that I make a good choice NOT to eat or drink something, I make a list on the "notes" page of the nutrition tracking page. At the end of the day I feel much better about any slip-ups that I have had if I can see the "slip-ups" that I prevented.

Start again IMMEDIATELY

If you are going somewhere and find yourself traveling in the wrong direction, you do not continue in that direction......as soon as possible, you turn around and get back on the correct road. Try to treat slip-ups like that. Avoid the 'I've already blown it' thinking,

Reminders Everywhere!

Have visual reminders everywhere you go. At home, at work, in the car. When you are constantly reminded of your healthy lifestyle, you remember to keep up with it! Also, being reminded that you are healthy will bring a little bit more confidence every day knowing you ARE doing it!

Variety

I have a Nintendo Wii. This has been my lifesaver with exercising. Did you know that if you play an active game of Bowling you can burn approx 103 calories? That means playing like you are bowling, and not sitting around. I also have a variety of exercise discs I rotate so not to get bored.

Plateau

Having my mind set that a plateau is going to happen. It makes it easier to handle when it does happen. Keeping in mind that it is a part of weight loss.

sweet tooth

When I need something sweet, chewing a piece of sugarfree gum helps me get past not eating something I shouldn't! emoticon
