I think that I get discouraged and eat what I shouldn't

I try to be perfect when I do something, but then there is a part of me that knows that I am not. So when I get to that point I want to eat something that I shouldn't. The candy tastes good and so does the brownies. In the meantime I gain weight back that I have worked so hard to get off.

schedule your feedings ;)

When I first started tracking, I paid very close attention to WHEN I would want to eat, in addition to what I was eating. This information helps now - I try to pre-plan WHEN I am going to want food - that helps give a clue as to whether or not I'm really hungry or eating for another reason.

Smaller plate

Use a desert plate as your main meal plate. Don't pile it high, just watch your portions.

Sports Bottles

I have found it extremely useful to always have my sports water bottle around. Mine is 32 oz so I track my water by how many I drink. I know I have to drink 2 of these to get my water intake in for the day. I take them everywhere and it really helps on the weekends when I'm in the car a lot more.

Make Mindless Eating Work for Me!

Each morning, I pack my bag full of healthy choices. I include bfast,lunch, 3 fruits, 1 yogurt, something crunchy to satisfy cravings (like veggies or granola bar) water and an emergency meal bar. I eat at certain times in the day and when I am hungry for something else, I go to my bag ONLY.

Every lick, taste, snack needs to be recorded to stay accountable for what I eat.

Cherry Tomatoes - 100 Calorie Snack Pack!

I have found those nifty little pint size boxes of cherry tomatoes available in the produce aisle to be the ideal 100 calorie snack-pack. No preservatives, filling, and good for you! Much better than a not-so-satifying 100 calorie pack of cookies, IMHO...

Don't over kill exercise.

Rome wasn't built in a day. Neither are you. Exercise helps your body feel good and it tones your body. Rely on loosing weight with a combination of exercise and the proper control of the right foods.

Incentives/Rewa
rds

Incentives are an important aspect of reaching weightloss goals or any life goals in general. Pick something you love to do and set a time line and go for it. A mani / pedi for 5lbs weight loss, New workout gear for 10lbs , massage for 15lbs loss and so on. You Catch my drift.
