Shirataki

Get the pasta feel without all the pasta. Drain it, rinse it and parboil to get rid of the odor. You'll get used to the texture - I promise

Homemade Soup

Homemade soup:- My DH & I regularly make large batches of soup (approx 12 portions) and freeze. Not only is it cheaper than shop bought soup, you know exactly what & how much has gone into it, you can use up all the left over fruit, veg & salad in your kitchen, it tastes good & it is a lot healthier

Planning Your Meals

Developing a written meal plan which I follow every week is very helpful. I eat the same thing every Monday as I eat every other Monday, the same thing every Tuesday, etc. I develop special plans for days that occur regularly but not weekly. The plan is posted on the refrigerator.

Time to Think Twice

When I want something like a book, a dvd, a heart rate monitor, an exercise machine etc. I look it up on amazon and put it in my cart. I do not buy it just yet. After a week or so when I look at the account I often find out that I do not "need" the stuff I so much thought I cannot live without!

spark friends

I haven't been all that motivated, but I will admitt that having someone there to check up on me has made me more motivated. The Texty Sparks team has really helped me tons since I can't always get online.
