The tried-and-true habits that have helped you lose weight the right way.
When you order a dessert at a restaurant, ask for it in a to-go box an a plate. When you get it portion out how much you want onto the plate and just eat that; save the rest for later :)
when you have a dessert, cut it into tiny pieces and wait a minute between each bite. often you will find that just a few bites of chocolate is all you need to get the flavor and cut the craving.
It's fast, easy and filling plus you get all your fruits and veggies for the day in a glass. Put spinach, kale, apple, banana, water, flax meal and frozen mixed berries in the blender. Your skin will thank you and you'll drop weight without thinking about it.
When I have a bad day, I mourn it, make a resolution to do better tomorrow and then set aside the bad deed. It makes no sense beating myself up and fouling up my attitude. Tomorrow gives me the opportunity to start over. So start over if you have to, your body will be happy if you do.
The difference between those who lose weight and those who lose it for good are the ones who make it a lifestyle change, not a diet! Thing better forever, not better for now!
I discovered this stuff called True Lemon - crystallized lemon juice that come in carry along packets. Really helps me drink my water every day without using artificial sweeteners!
Since adding Weight Watchers to Spark People, I realize now just how much I was snacking throughout the ENTIRE day. Writing down every single thing that I eat has helped tremendously.
Chips! Measure out a serving in a bowl or plastic baggie. I never eat straight out of the bag anymore and Do Not go back for refills. :)
When I get in a snacky mood, I reach for gum. I like Trident's orange flavor best. It doesn't taste artificially sweet, curbs my craving, and gives me something to do w/my mouth besides eating!
I am a testament that cutting alcohol does accelerate your weight loss. For years I would hit a weight loss plateau and get discouraged. I finally realized that drinking glasses of wine on the weekends was the culprit. This year I cut out all drinking and the results are amazing. No more plateaus...
