Remember that you don't have to eat everything on the plate. This seems to be more problematic when eating out because you don't want to waste. If you can't wrap it up for later go ahead and toss it. Food becomes waste one way or another. Better that it is wasted without being processed into fat

Mini goals...lose 10% of your weight.

I like using smaller weight goals that are more reachable and will help me stay on track. Take 10% of your weight and then subtract it from your starting weight and that is your first weight goal to hit. Then when you hit that do the 10% from your new weight and so on .

Measure/Weigh Portions and Put into your Hand...

I measure or weigh my portions of grapes, raisins, almonds, etc. according to the serving size on the package & put them into my hand to teach myself what a true serving looks & feels like. This way if I snack/graze, I have an idea of how many calories and servings I'm consuming of a certain food.

Pamper your hands!

I constantly crave sweet treats: ice cream, cheesecake, CHOCOLATE! I have splerged on fancy hand creams - you'd be amazed at what they have out there if you look. Not only are my hands busy rubbing on the stuff, but it satisfies the sweets craving.
