Just a little at a time

Because I'm on a limited income when I buy something with cash, I always put the change in a dish. Then I put dimes in one jar, nickels in another. Pennies go into my bingo jar. Quarters go into my laundry jar. It's not a whole lot, but I figure if I have a small emergency, I'll have something to use.

Drink the water!

Drinking eight 8-oz glasses of water, really helped to jumpstart my weightloss. Not only was i less hungry, because i was so full of water, but i was motivated by dropping the water weight first. I actually drink four 16-oz glasses, i drink one with each meal and then one sometime throughout the day.

Managing your Changing Clothes Size as You Lose Weight

I saved one pair of pants, my biggest ones and tucked it away so I can pull them out when I reach my goal weight. As I lose the weight and my pants and shirts get too big I am not saving them. I don't ever want to look back or make it easy to put on my 'fat pants'.

Have a plan and stick to it

I write a list before I go shopping Ė and stick to it. I prepare a careful plan of what I want to buy before I go out, then stick to that plan when I go shopping. I donít put anything in the cart unless it is on my list. I have the same plan when I shopping for clothes. emoticon

Right When You Get Home from Grocery Shopping

It's true. The times I take to prep all my veggies after I get home from the store & before they get put away, the more I am apt to cook with them or snack from them because it takes less time when I want to cook or eat. Takes just a bit of time at first but pays off BIG later.... emoticon

Talk About Your New Lifestyle Every Chance You Get

I found that talking about how we have changed our lifestyle as far as what we eat and especially regarding the Food Inc. info and how not all foods are created equal, not only am I spreading information and potentially saving lives but I am also holding myself accountable.

Swap the fancy large dishes for smaller portion sized ones

Have you noticed that the dinner plates just keep getting larger? When your plate or bowl are large you tend to fill it up. We switched to eating off of salad plates and I bought smaller bowls to eat out of in order to keep our portion sizes in control.
