There is no secret miricle drug that will work.

It takes sweat, hard work, and diet to lose weight and maintain it. It's a learning experience and a life change. If you don't change the habits that made you gain weight, then you'll gain it again.

Portion Control Snacks Ahead of Time

Invest in a few small tupperware containers (I like 1 cup and 1/2 cup sizes) and portion out crackers, dried fruit, nuts, ect when you first get home from the store. Then it is easy to grab a snack on the way out the door! And if you eat them at home, it's easy to keep track of portions.

Quick way to figure out how to maintain your weight loss

To Maintain Weight - Multiply your weight (in pounds) by 12
This is a rough estimate of daily calories needed to maintain weight.

To Lose Weight - Deduct 500 calories from this figure
This gives you a rough estimate of the daily calories needed for you to lose about 1 pound per week.

Mental Preparedness

I have a problem with temptation, so I prepare myself daily that I will NOT eat bad food options (i.e. stop for a soda or something to eat from fast food). This way, I am prepared to drive right past and not stop!

Cure Evening Snacking, By Eating?

If you find yourself consuming too many calories in the evening by snacking, don't try to just stop snacking completely. Form a game plan. Think of something sensible that is also a treat and save it to eat before bedtime. Soon you will find that you have broken that cycle of snacking!

APPETITE DESTROYER

When i am hungry for junk food, i chew 5 cobalt sugarfree chewing gum. The extremely strong peppermint flavor always destroys the craving within a couple of minutes of chewing this gum.

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.
