Downsize

Basically everything in moderation. I eat just about anything I want, even at buffets, I just don't take huge amounts. You hear it on 'The Doctors':
"Everything in moderation, some things on occasion."

Stop eating before you are full

When I was hypnotized, they used the 1-10 scale, with 1 being starved and 10 being stuffed. Stop eating at about a 6 or 7.

CONSCIOUS EATING

STOP AND THINK
Each time before I select something to eat I am asking myself these 3 questions before the food goes from my hand into my mouth.
1. Is this a healthy choice? why?
2. Am I hungry? or am I just thirsty?
3. Did I plan to eat this today or am I choosing this on a whim?

The 9-inch plate

The single best tip I ever found was to change to a 9-inch plate with 1/4 of the plate with a protein, 1/4 of the plate with a carb, and 1/2 of the plate filled with vegetables. I found that I could still eat the same foods as my family. I didn't feel deprived and to my surprise I wasn't hungry.

Constant exercising

I'm addicted to exercise. My intense exercise is always in the mornings. Then I walk later, and do some heavy housework.
There are 3 mornings a month that I have scheduled meetings. It really bothers me. My weight is down. That's good for my bones and overall health.

Plateau

Having my mind set that a plateau is going to happen. It makes it easier to handle when it does happen. Keeping in mind that it is a part of weight loss.

Carry a water bottle.

I have a sport bottle that holds 20 ounces of water. I carry it all day long. If I am traveling I carry at least two with me.
if you fill it three times a day you will get your 8 glasses of water if you include brushing your teeth and the water in yur food. emoticon emoticon emoticon
