Eat to Fuel & Fill - less calories and less cheating

I figure out what fills me up and fuels my body to get through my day and workouts. Then I am not tempted to eat junk food as I am not hungry and my body is not craving anything.
Some need a high carb breakfast like oatmeal, others need high protein to be filled up & fueled ready for their day.

Measure Results Beyond the Scale!

I look at inches lost, my doctor's positive feedback, increased energy and endurance levels, firmer/toned body AND I go by how my clothes fit. I buy smaller size clothing and try them on often. As the clothes start to fit, this motivates me to continue my workouts and healthy eating.

calendar goals

I like to use a calendar to map out my goals, whether short-term ones or the long term one, and I use colored pencils and even stickers on it. It's just a fun visual thing to do. ( I found a web-site where you can print a calendar page for each month with very little ink, any month you want.)

all day long

I found that if I eat 6 small meals, I can maintain or lower my weight rather than not eating all day and then splurging at night!

Starting my tracking day in the evening

I've started tracking my evening meal (traditionally my biggest meal & with company) as the start of my next day. I track dinner, breakf & lunch in that order. Makes it easier for me to stay within my targets! It really has helped!

Paper Clip Chain

I keep a chain of paper clips next to my computer monitor at work. Each paper clip represents one pound lost. They are always front and center to help keep me motivated. I remember to say "No thank you" to the office doughnuts.
