The tried-and-true habits that have helped you lose weight the right way.
I have found that eating about 5 to 6 mini meals a day keeps my weight down. If I eat 3 big meals and a snack every day, I will gain more than I should. I am not a very active person so I have to do what I can without relying on exercise to help me keep my weight down.
It seems to help me lose weight by keeping my metabolism "burning". Small, healthy snacks between meals really seem to help.
We don't realize how strong we really are until we are at our weakest moment. We don't give ourselves enough credit. In an emergency we can do what needs to be done - how is weightloss any different. An unhealthy life can cause sickness & death. I would call that an emergency. Act on it & be strong.
Brush your teeth when you know you're done eating for the day. I don't like to mess up the nice clean feeling with food so all I can do is drink more water. It helps curb unneeded evening/night time snacking
Like the "devil" and "angel" on your shoulder from old cartoons, I ask the healthy thin person in my head to convince the crazy fat person in my head not to eat that (donut, cookie, candy bar, brownie, etc.) because it is personal sabotage and not worth the momentary pleasure.
When I am trying to lose weight I tell everyone! I make sure people at work and at home know that I should not be having that cupcake or skipping my daily exercise. It really helps to have people holding me accountable in my daily life.
Add 1 tablespoon of liquid chlorophyll to your 16 oz. glass of water. Check with your doc or NP first. I find that it stops my sugar cravings, plus I get more water in. Chlorophyll will help to balance blood sugar - it's helped me not to snack after supper. Tastes good, too!
HI I DRINK 1/2 -1 CUP OF COFFEE IN THE MORNING. ON THE DAYS I'M GOING TO WEIGH I HAVE MY COFFEE. THEN I WEIGH BEFORE I CONSUME ANYTHING ELSE. I FIND IT TO BE THE MOST ACCURATE. LOVE & HUGS CONNIE
Three things to know when you are about to make a food choice; 1) what is the portion size, 2) what are the calories per serving, and 3) what other choices are there.
