Sleep Deprivation

I do believe what SP says about having a good sleep. I feel that if we use positive messages before going to bed, meditate, etc., that your sleep will be better and kick start your plateau, stopping that hormone, cortisol, from keeping us from losing weight.

Regular Eating

I make sure to eat ever 3-4 hours and drink plenty of water. This ensures that I won't get so hungry that I just eat whatever is around or find myself mindlessly eating.

Making all my chores around the house an exercise.

Whatever work I do daily around my house I make it an exercise. I even stopped using remote control to change TV channels. I get up and walk after every 10 minutes to do some thing. I do housework in between my workouts. I love this healthy way of living.

Be Creative

If your craving something that is out of your calorie range, create and play in the kitchen to create a new healthier version. Another good one is to use substitues, freeze pudding cups for 3 hours - is just like soft ice cream and alot less calories and portion controlled.

CONSCIOUS EATING

STOP AND THINK
Each time before I select something to eat I am asking myself these 3 questions before the food goes from my hand into my mouth.
1. Is this a healthy choice? why?
2. Am I hungry? or am I just thirsty?
3. Did I plan to eat this today or am I choosing this on a whim?

The 9-inch plate

The single best tip I ever found was to change to a 9-inch plate with 1/4 of the plate with a protein, 1/4 of the plate with a carb, and 1/2 of the plate filled with vegetables. I found that I could still eat the same foods as my family. I didn't feel deprived and to my surprise I wasn't hungry.

Work out Buddy

I have found having someone to go walking with keeps me motivated to do it. My friend at work and I walk on our breaks. It gives us time away from work and gives us time to grip and blow off steam from the stressors at work. We even find the more gripping we do, the faster we walk.
