I grab my fat

When I want to eat something I don't need, usually a Snickers, I grab my belly fat. I reminds me that I already have a Snickers in storage.

Eat a pound of vegetables every day

This is what did it for me. Get a kitchen scale and eat at least a pound of vegetables every day. They fill you up, and you have less room for junk. No food is off- limits, but who has room for a large dessert or second helping of meat when you've just eaten three grilled zucchinis or a shoebox sized serving of spinach?

How to beat eating in the evening

I do well all day long with keeping my meals on track, but evenings are a challenge. I've learned if I make some hot tea (herbal or different flavors) and sip it while keeping my hands busy with some type of craft (I love to knit), it really helps me not snack all evening and "blow " my efforts for the day.

Treat It Like A Job

When I asked a young woman who had lost 200 pounds how she did it, she said that she treated weight loss like a job. No matter how she felt, she showed up. She showed up at the grocery store to buy the right food, she showed up to track her food, she showed up to walk, etc.

Spiked water trick

I meant to buy water flavoring this week but forgot. I don't much get inspired by water, even bottled, and I can drink Diet Coke Cherry or Vanilla Zero by the VAT. This isn't good, even though moderate diet soda consumption is ok. So I got the idea to spike my bottled water with about an ounce of Diet Coke. The water spiked with diet cola has enough of the flavor to make it interesting, but it's still mostly water. It makes it much easier to get eight glasses a day.

Take a sip of water between each bite

I find that taking a sip of water after each bite of food helps me to slow down when I eat. In addition to increasing my water intake, It allows my brain to catch up to my stomach and recognize when I am full. This simple act prevents me from overeating at meals.

Figure out what you are hungry for - it might not be food

Hunger isn't necessarily for food!

When I am tired, I am hungry for sleep.
When I am thirsty, I am hungry for liquids.
When I am feeling down, I'm hungry for support.
When I am feeling lonely, I'm hungry for people.

Don't eat food when you need friends, or fluids, or sleep!!! Recognize what your hunger actually is for, and satisfy it with what it is craving.

Ice cream rarely gives you extra sleep, quenches your thirst, or gives you a hug!
