Chewing Gum

When I'm in-between meals and I get a craving or urge to eat, I always make sure to keep Sugar-Free gum on hand. I just pop in a stick and it helps me to make it to my next meal without putting unwanted food in my body. I buy Extra because there are so many different flavors that pretty much any craving I have will be satiated. emoticon

Accountability at work

Today I shared my goals and plan with a few coworkers. I think that this was a secret weapon because when cake was brought to the break room, my coworkers helped me resist and get out of that dangerous situation! I am now more accountable at work!

Food

I have found that old school thinking does not work. You have to EAT, no matter how much you think calories in calories out. get rid of it. Eat healthy, eat when your hungry and use the BMR chart to give you your calorie allotment for the day. Less is not more. I find if I only eat 1200 or less (for me) I will not lose weight, but if I pop it up to 1400 I will. Forget refined foods and sugar, introduce coconut oil to your diet and do not give up fat. Skip the sugar instead,. emoticon

Make hydration a habit

Drink 2 cups of water before you do anything else in the morning. You will feel the difference all day, and you will start recognizing the difference between hunger and thirst cues throughout the day.

Put off eating for just 5 minutes

When I am about to have an extra treat that I do need, I put it off, and do something away from the kitchen. For just 5 minutes. Sometimes that is all I need to overcome temptation

Weekend Weigh In

Weekend eating has always been a challenge for me until I joined the Largest Virtual Weigh In Team and started weighing on either Saturday, Sunday or Monday. It really helped me stick to healthy eating habits on the weekend.
