Favorite Foods

I love the Laughing Cow cheeses-they're great spread on just about anything, burgers, homemade pizzas, crackers, my kids even use them to make mac & cheese, and on sandwiches instead of reg. cheese. I heard they'll be new kinds soon!! And Arnold Sandwich Thins are great, best I've tried!

Drink the water!

Drinking eight 8-oz glasses of water, really helped to jumpstart my weightloss. Not only was i less hungry, because i was so full of water, but i was motivated by dropping the water weight first. I actually drink four 16-oz glasses, i drink one with each meal and then one sometime throughout the day.

Managing your Changing Clothes Size as You Lose Weight

I saved one pair of pants, my biggest ones and tucked it away so I can pull them out when I reach my goal weight. As I lose the weight and my pants and shirts get too big I am not saving them. I don't ever want to look back or make it easy to put on my 'fat pants'.

Swap the fancy large dishes for smaller portion sized ones

Have you noticed that the dinner plates just keep getting larger? When your plate or bowl are large you tend to fill it up. We switched to eating off of salad plates and I bought smaller bowls to eat out of in order to keep our portion sizes in control.

Logging what you eat

When I first started I was diligent about logging al of my food each day and checking it several times a day to make sure I was still on track. Then I stopped, thinking I knew how to eat right. I didn't gain any weight but my weight loss all but stopped.

Scale

Don't always look at the scale to see how much you have lost. Measurments and clothes fitting tells a better story sometime

Preparation is Key - Tote Bag

I find it very helpful to always carry a tote bag with me that has apples, nuts, string cheese, yogurt (if I can keep it cool). I never leave the house without it and even take it to family and friend's houses when I visit. It helps me stick to eating what is right if I get hungry away from home.

Eating my fruits and vegetables

I have quit basing my meals on meat and use it to flavor my salads and vegetables. The main focus of the meal is the vegetables which contain less calories and fat.
