No more white sugar and white flour

I was so stuck at a certain weight. I was exercising, eating within my calorie range, but as soon as I stopped white sugar and white flour I have lost six pounds, which is a lot for me, being stuck for over 5 months!

Pick 'n Stick

I automate at least one meal every day. My breakfast is almost always the same.. Less to think about; less chance of making poor choices.

Pre-measuring snacks

When I get home from the store, as I'm putting my groceries away, I cut up fruit and vegetables into portions and put them in bags so when I'm hungry, all I have to do is open the drawer and grab a bag, rather than grazing my pantry for something I really shouldn't have.

Plan today for tomorrow!

In the evenings I block out just a little bit of time to prepare for the next day...pack my gym bag, set out my clothes for the next day, pack my lunch, whatever I can do to make my morning less stressful!

Exercise First Thing in the Morning

Get it out of the way. If you don't do it then, you'll find excuse after excuse not to do it later in the day!

Log in Every Day

I have found that logging in every day, and working through each tracking area helps to keep me focused and energized. The mere fact that I am held accountable has helped me tremendously !

Water Can Fill You Up

I make certain that I drink my water. Every afternoon before making dinner I have a "hungry time". So I make a point of having a snack and a tall glass of water. This tides me over and keeps me from snacking while I'm cooking. I like to add a slice of cucumber, mint, or lemon to my water.

Slow Down

Practice putting your fork or spoon down after every bite and try savoring the flavor of the food you are eating.
