Hold off hunger cravings!

The best thing to do if you want to snack is to drink "chug" a full 8 oz glass of water before eating what you wanted to snack on. 9 times out of 10 for me, I've chosen NOT to eat what I went into the kitchen for! emoticon emoticon

Family Dinners

I eat air popped popcorn BEFORE going to a family dinner or any kind of large dinner where I will be tempted with lots of food. By the time I get there, I am already feeling full and so, don't overeat.

Get the Water IN !

Had the hardest time drinking the 8-8oz glasses of water until I remembered as a nurse we would encourage patients to drink with a straw. Holy Cow it works like a charm. Before you know it the glass is empty and you just fill it up again. Using a 16 oz. glass works even better !

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.
