The tried-and-true habits that have helped you lose weight the right way.
One thing I've found that helps is to eat off of smaller plates and use smaller bowls. The only exception? Have larger glasses of water! You don't want to fill up the small plates but you won't feel bad if you lick the plate clean!!
I've lost 10 pounds in 8 weeks with SparkPeople. It doesn't matter if you mess up a day, or miss a workout, just get back to it, do what you've learned here, and you WILL lose too!
When eating out with my fiance I usually like to choose the place before going. Then I can look at their meal and see if it on here and enter it , so that I know the calories I need to save for it or can add to it
Love this one I found here: A restaurant or vacation meal is not a "treat", it is a meal!
If you will chew tediously slowly, savor each bite and put your fork down between bites, you will give your brain enough time to know that you've satisfied your hunger before you overeat.
When I have no calories to spend and I need something in my stomach *right now* I reach for a 1/4 cup to 1 cup of crispy, juicy jicama (yam bean) with a twist of citrus and a dash of paprika.
I don't like the taste of water! Adding Crystal Light only hurts my throat b/c of the Aspartame. I buy lemons and limes - just to throw them away b/c they are old. I add True Lemon to my water and I can't believe how easy it is to drink my 8 glasses of water! It works perfect for me!
use smaller plates so your portions look bigger!
I put "H20" on my to do list at work and keep it highlighted. When I refer to my list thought out the day, I am reminded to grab my water bottle and take a big long drink or two.
