Tame the Hungries with veggies

I keep bags of frozen mixed vegetables and low-cal condiments on hand. To tame the hungries I microwave a cup of veggies for one minute, then add something flavorful like teriyaki sauce or fat-free salad dressing. If I am really hungry there's nothing wrong with two cups of veggies!

Responsibility, serenity and change

This adaptation of the Serenity Prayer is a good reminder to take responsibility for your own body and health and not to be put off by other people's negativity: "Grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can and the wisdom to know it's me."

Drinking milk lowers my appetite

Drinking milk at least once a day keeps me from snacking and over-eating. I also read that women who drink it after a workout lose more weight than those who drink sports drinks. (1.5 lbs. vs. 3.2 lbs.)

Fiber One Chewy Bars

My new favorite treat. I feel like I am having a naughty candy bar, while instead I am getting lots of fiber and a great between meal snack. They are so rich and decadent tasting. I make it my sweet reward after a long, hard workout at the gym !! :)

Jergin's Natural Glow- My slimming secret

While I am working hard to lose weight, firm and tone my body, I find the tanner I am the better I look. At 37, I do not want to bake in the sun or use a tanning bed. So, I love this firming lotion, applied all over my body. It works slowly over 2-3 days and really looks natural with no streaks !

Sugar Free is the way to Be

I eat sugar free candy when I get those 3:00 in the afternoon and after dinner cravings. It has helped me to not have to give up what I like and still allows me stick to my calories and carb levels that I have set for myself.
