Magic Erasers for Tubs

Using a magic eraser to clean the tub takes a lot of the elbow work out of removing the residue. Magic Erasers are perfect for almost all household scrubbing, but I have found them particularly helpful when trying to get water spot, residue or rust stains removed from the tub/shower.

How I drink water

This might sound silly but to help me focus on getting all of my water down I take a sip for every pet I have ever owned. Sometimes I switch it up by making a silent toast to departed friends & relatives OR a silent toast to others who have made a difference in my life.

Ditch the 100-Calorie Packs

They look benign enough, but all they do is spike your sugar and have you craving more. While it's nice to enjoy your favorite snacks in moderation, the volume isn't really a sustainable snack. The best 100 calorie snacks are a nice piece of fresh fruit, a yogurt, or a few almonds or pistachios!

Eat Breakfast

I found that eating breakfast has aided in my weight loss. I used to NEVER eat breakfast because I was in a hurry however since taking the time to do so, I've shed weight at a more consistent loss.

Plan meals and exercise at least one day in advance

I try to plan a day or more in advance - taking into account special events that will interfere with my "normal" eating and exercise routines. That way I can figure out in advance how to work around them or compensate for them.

Eat and drink water BEFORE you are hungry and first thing in the morning!

Don't wait until you are famished to eat. When you get up in the morning start with 1 glass of water and a banana or some small food item. Thinking this way promotes small meals through out the day which is proven to help with weight loss.

Keep a food diary

I have found that I am most successful at maintaining my weight if I track my food. At first it can seem tedious but eventually you get in the habit and if you are brutally honest with yourself it really helps keep you from overeating.
