100 calorie packs kept me fat

I fooled myself eating 100 calorie treats. I sabotaged my health thinking I was eating less to feel good about eating something nutritionally wrong. I bypass them all together I haven't missed them one bit. Money is better spent on fruits and organics I used to think were out of my budget range.

More Calories Early

For years I chose to eat a reasonable breakfast, light lunch and made my evening meal the main meal of my day. By switching the pattern to heavier meals early in the day and light in the evening (no starches generally) I lost weight. After a few weeks this pattern curbed evening snacking too.

When I feel hungry between meals

When I am feeling hungry between meals I will drink a glass of water and eat a rice cake. Usually that will satisfy the hunger. If I am wanting something sweet I will have the caramel or chocolate flavor and if I want a salty or cheesy taste I have the white cheddar flavor. This combo works for me.

Overeating

Before you eat something, ask yourself are you thirsty or hungry?

Motto to live by...

I have my favorite motto posted in my office and it says "Nothing tastes as good as THIN feels!" I have a look at it whenever there is birthday cake in the kitchen at work or when co-workers bring in goodies to share!

CARDIO!!

Every time someone asks me "how did you loose all the weight?" My answer is always the same "CARDIO"
Start with just 5 minutes a day and build on it every week. You'll get there!!

The scale doesn't lie

This is the best way to know if I need to scale my eating back and my exercise up after returning from a trip.. I'd rather know when the difference is small...before the weight creeps up on me!

Eat Breakfast!

Don't skip breakfast! But make it healthy--oatmeal, fresh fruit, non fat milk, egg white omelet, whole grain toast. It starts you out with the fuel you need to get through the morning and to be more active.
