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

Plates

I put my food on a smaller plate so it 'looks' like I am getting a whole plate of food. Right now I am using a salad plate. We always think we aren't getting much to eat if our plates aren't full of food and this has really worked for me. Years ago when I was 'dieting', I used a saucer.

To Little Food?

I 've tried starving, counting calories, reading labels-eating whole grains, low sugar, low salt, high fiber, high protein low carb you name it - I have done it! I am on a plateau - an what is working for me now? eating 6 small meals - about 1 every 3 hours - all meals w/carbs, protein & fat.

No Food 2 hrs before bed time

I have found that I eat a lot at night, so to curb this, I decided not to eat anything 2 hours before I go to bed. This will curb my snacking and lead to the next step of no snacking at night.

gonna make it work

I have been on spark for a little while and reading other success stories and understanding that others faced the same problems each day and did not give up, motivated me to finally stick with it and do whatever it takes to stick with it, also motivating others by responding to blogs and sharing
