Checking food quantities

One of the biggest helps to staying on track that I find is to have the measuring cups, spoons and food scales on my bench beside where I dish up meals - and to USE them for everything.
I find that judging weights and measures - they tend to creep up and I'm never sure exactly how much I eat

Standing While Working

I have a desk job and do a lot of sitting. I have changed to be able to stand while I work. It burns more calories, is better for my posture, and helps strengthen core muscles.

Meal Planning for Success

I plan my meals the night before so that I know exactly what I'm having so that I'm not tempted to eat whatever is in sight. I plan for 3 meals and 3 snacks and use Nutrition Tracker to track it all so I stay within my daily calorie, carb, and fat range.

Buy a food scale!

Weigh snacks and everything you can! This will give you a more accurate measurement of how much you are eating!

It's all in your head!

When looking at weight loss it's easy to give up early. Are you setting yourself up for failure or success? It's all in how you look at it. Say your goal is to lose 50 lbs. After 30 days you only lose 8lbs. It doesn't seem like much.

Moderation in all things

have snack bags filled with a serving size of your favorite snack...leave room for it on your nutrition tracker...eat one a day! Or less, but you don't have to cut out your favorite snack!

Stop the temptation to enter the cookie jar!

Stop..STOP.. and make yourself a cup of your favorite tea. I like Vanilla Chai..the perfect combo of sweet and spice for me. I find that if I CAN just STOP and brew my tea..the sugary snack craving is gone.

Winning the Snacking war

I keep pre-portioned snacks EVERYWHERE. In my desk at work, in my purse, and in my car. That way I'm never tempted to grab an unhealthy snack, I always have one within arms reach. emoticon

THE SAUCER METHOD OF EATING

I have started using a saucer to use as my portion control apparatus. When I fill the saucer up that is it! I eat no more for at least 2 hours! ! I try to eat 6 small meals a day. This has helped with the shrinking of my stomach!
