I talk to co-workers about what I am doing to lose the weight and track what I eat. This keeps me on track and stay in my guidelines. emoticon

cups of ice

whenever I crave unhealthy food, I simply chew on ice. It helps me forget what I was craving and keeps me entertained at the same time. So instead of sitting in front of the tv with a bag of potato chips, I sit in front of the tv with a cup of ice!!

Learn from the Past

If you have been a yoyo dieter like me, stop and think what went right when you were succeeding and what didn't when you got off track. You can magnify the factors that help you succeed and avoid or minimize the challenges.

Keep Logging Your Food

When I have a craving, I indulge just enough to take off the edge and not binge. But the one thing I do and commit to is documenting everything I eat. I learned that by documenting, I am more conscious of what I am putting in my body and how many calories I consume daily. emoticon

Fill the void

When I'm feeling stressed, bored, or just watching my fiancÚ eat crap, I have to "fill the void" with something in order to keep from making a mistake. In other words, exercise for 10 minutes, drink a big glass of water or snack on some fresh veggies.

There are two things that work for me.
1. Weigh myself every day.
2. Keep a food journal. I have a computer program that I use to enter all my food. This program tracks calories and nutrition. Tracking everything is the key!

staying sane

I have successfully maintained my weight for 13 years simply by being human at times. 2 days a month I let myself eat or drink whatever I want. I don't miss the way i looked as a 2x 13 years ago but I enjoy eating occasionally like I did when I was fat.
