Baggies and cooking spray are your friend

Roast or grill veggies (carrots, onion, peppers, etc) using olive oil cooking spray to avoid fat and calories and use seasonings. I cook a lot at once, weigh out 6 oz and put them in a baggies and into the freezer. They are sooo sweet when they are thawed. I do the same with meat so it's on hand.

Eat often!

Eating 5 or 6 low calorie mini-meals around 200 cals each every 3 hours keeps me from feeling hungry and discourages overeating because I know another meal is just around the corner!

Eat more yogurt!

A non or low fat greek yogurt (plain without all that sugar!) is so good for your bones, and gives your muscles a whopping dose of protein, while staving off hunger. Don't be afraid of slightly higher calories in greek yogurt - it will keep you full for longer!

Reaching weight loss goals

My biggest secret to losing wieht is pushing myself to exercise and keep moving even when I don't feel like it. Also I write down the goals I need to accomplish before I start exercising and once I put it on paper I will not stop until I have reached the goals I set for that day

Tea Time

I use a goodd, old cup of hot tea before and after all meals and snacks. I drink mostly all herbal teas so not to have all that caffine. Once in a while I drink black with milk. Let your meal settle for 20-30 mins. No sugars or milk. Decaf green is so good. I blend it with my non-green ones.

SlimQuick is my secret

Alli

Alli is a supplement that helps eliminate a portion of fat you eat. Be ware, oily gas is 1 side effect uncontrolled urgency to go is too. This reminds me to eat less fatty foods so I don't have to worry about side effects. Love knowing fat is flushed away instead of staying in my body.

Create a "wiggle-room meal" when tracking calories!

I eat a big or small breakfast based on how hungry I am in the morning, and I track it. Then, still in the morning, I enter what I'm planning to have for dinner, and then I enter an evening snack. Lunch is my "wiggle room." I can go big or small, depending on how many calories I have left.

My Secret Wardrobe

This has helped me lose weight before- You know how you have all those clothes in different sizes? Just organize them largest to smallest, and as you get fit, you fit into the smaller sizes. If you don't, you wear the same stuff over n over!
