Substitute for Noodles

When I'm in the mood for something on the noodle side but don't want to use pasta, I substitute broccoli slaw. It comes already shredded and adding my favorite veggies to the this along with protien & sauce I have a wonderful dish. The slaw gives me the feel and texture of noodles.

Reward Thy Self

Keep yourself motivated by rewarding your hard work. As I set new goals I also set up my reward for reaching that goal. The rewards were my carrot to keep me focus and moving. Goals were anything like getting my daily steps, hitting a milestone, eating my meals etc. they can be what ever you like.

Focus on What You Can Have

I stop focusing on what I can't have and instead focus on what I can have. It helped not creating cravings or feeling deprived because I looking at what I can't have. I'm surprised at how much I can have and make wise choices.

Reward your hard work

I pick out a none food related reward for each month I hit a goal, stay on my plan or reach a new insight. Currently maintaining my weight, I pick out a reward that keeps me focus. The reward keeps me going and something to look forward to getting. Next reward is a day spa.

Write it Out as to WHY?

I wrote myself a letter about why I decided to lose weight and the reason why it's important to me. I eliminated all the reasons from other people, my doctor, my dear spouse, my mother etc and left only those reason that I came up with.

I posted the letter in the kitchen and carried a copy.

Off and On Again

When I have a bad food day or meal, I get right back on track. Don't let it go beyond that meal or moment. It happens, I forgive myself, evaluate what happen and what's learned and move forward. I don't let it spin out of control or endlessly. Stop it quick and get back on track.

Ask... Be Heard

When eating out, ask how the food is prepared. I'm not afraid to ask for substitutions, even when they say no substitutions. Pick out two or three dishes before hand so you have an alternative. I've had little problem getting what I want prepared how I need it prepared.

What I measure.

I use the scale for one part of my weight loss success. I also use a tape measure to look at my inches. I check my body fat percentage with my trainer as another measurement.
