Eat a pound of vegetables every day

This is what did it for me. Get a kitchen scale and eat at least a pound of vegetables every day. They fill you up, and you have less room for junk. No food is off- limits, but who has room for a large dessert or second helping of meat when you've just eaten three grilled zucchinis or a shoebox sized serving of spinach?

Spiked water trick

I meant to buy water flavoring this week but forgot. I don't much get inspired by water, even bottled, and I can drink Diet Coke Cherry or Vanilla Zero by the VAT. This isn't good, even though moderate diet soda consumption is ok. So I got the idea to spike my bottled water with about an ounce of Diet Coke. The water spiked with diet cola has enough of the flavor to make it interesting, but it's still mostly water. It makes it much easier to get eight glasses a day.

You can get your waters in

you start drinking water, it will become addicting! To get your waters in, keep an 8 oz glass in the restrooms you use and every time you tinkle, drink a cup of water. Before you know it, you have them all in. 8 is not the magic number, if you need more, drink more. Most fruits have a lot of water, I count them as 1/2 glass per serving. Upon first rising, drink 2 (it helps your skin and digestive system). emoticon

How to beat eating in the evening

I do well all day long with keeping my meals on track, but evenings are a challenge. I've learned if I make some hot tea (herbal or different flavors) and sip it while keeping my hands busy with some type of craft (I love to knit), it really helps me not snack all evening and "blow " my efforts for the day.

Finally losing the weight

Tracking everything I put in my mouth and reading labels. I don't know how many times I've picked up a candy bar, read the label and decided it just wasn't worth it. I do know if I truly want that candy bar, I have to make adjustments to what I eat for the rest of the day. It's nice to know nothing is off limits.

Take a sip of water between each bite

I find that taking a sip of water after each bite of food helps me to slow down when I eat. In addition to increasing my water intake, It allows my brain to catch up to my stomach and recognize when I am full. This simple act prevents me from overeating at meals.

Add some Propel to water

If you add Propel to your bottled water and freeze a little till slushy. It's refreshing and it fills you up.
