The tried-and-true habits that have helped you lose weight the right way.
I have finally realized weight doesn't come off as fast as you hope BUT it does come off. Don't sabotage your weight lose if you don't lose anything for one even 2 weeks. It will turn around and come off! I know.
Weighing yourself everyday can get very discouraging. Put the scale away and only get it out on weigh in day ( my day is Friday). It is so motivating to see the needle drop on the scale!
I use a glass that is a pint jar with a handle. That way, I know that I have had a two cups of water when I finish it. Four or more of those a day, and I have made my goal. No more plastic water bottles.
I put my weights and mat between the living room and the kitchen. If I'm headed towards the kitchen, I see the weights and mat and do 10 minutes of something besides eating -- sun salutations is my favorite. Often I forget I was hungry.
It's ok to feel a little hungry, a Dr. told me in 1959. That may be ok to eat healthy and be a little hungry. I read on Dr. Oz something about being 80% full, I think. Check out that data and feel proud you eat well but less.
When I feel really hungry but fast food is the only option I grab about 10 almonds for a snack. The protein and fiber from the nuts takes away the hunger and keeps it away longer than a candy bar.
I feel much less hunger when I stay hydrated. If I need more taste than plain water there are flavor packets which also have vitamins added or just plain lemon or lime juice - most restaurants that serve tea have packets of lemon on the condiment stand
I find that having a certain cutoff time that you stop eating for the night... works for me. It takes getting used to at first but once you do, you will be glad you did.
in your water put a lemon or lemon juice. it might taste sour buts it is worth it. the acid breaks down food faster.
