Get rid of your clothes as they get too big

Don't keep clothes that are too big for you. Clothes that fit you are your constant check that you are staying the course. When the clothes get snug you have too take care of it because you have nothing else to wear.

Stop the Snacking

To avoid eating at night, I brush my teeth after dinner. The clean taste in my mouth stops me from eating or drinking anything before bed.

Workout more, eat more, workout less, eat less!

I work out a good sweaty hard hour every day. If I decide to do more, I must up my calories. My body lets me know when it needs more fuel. But its common sense if you have a restful day, you should eat at the bottom of your calorie range. If you go hard, get up to the top of your range.

2nd Portions

After 1 serving of a meal, I drink a glass of water and wait the 20 minutes before allowing myself to get more, even if I still feel hungry. Usually once the time is up I realize that I actually don't want the food.

stress eating at work

Instead of keeping sweets and snacks around for stress eating at work, simply take fruits and veges to nibble on. If the sweets and fats aren't handy, you likely won't go looking for them if a bag of carrots is right there on your desk.

Support

It is always good to have some type of accountability partner. Rather if it is just to call someone and tell them what you have done positive in your healthy lifestyle choice or someone who can be accountable to you as well!

How much did I eat anyway?

once every few weeks actually measure your food for a couple of days just to make sure you don't lose your perspective on what a portion really looks like!
