As you lose weight, get rid of the "fat clothes," the clothes that have become too big on you, and never turn back.
Make a pact with yourself never to buy bigger clothes again. Unless you simply want to keep one item for nice "proof" photos of your former self. This is a huge motivating factor for me to keep my weight where it is, and not allow myself to backtrack. It's my "no-turning-back" policy

Retirement starts with that first paycheck. OHHHH it was so hard in the beginning not to want to spend that little pile of cash. Even though the extra annuity checks went bye bye with the market, what we saved is supporting us now. I am so happy we were not foolish in the beginning as I never knew it would turn out this good. Remember to pay yourself first and then don't touch it - forget it's there.
This tip is only for when you need crumbled hamburger for say tacos or spaghetti sauce. I put my hamburger in a pot of water and boil it until it's done. Drain the water and bye-bye grease. Leave the meat in 1 or 2 chunks then after draining use a spatula to break up into crumbles/season & use!
It sounds weird but it works. You don't get that browned toasty taste but for tacos or spaghetti you are adding plenty of other flavors. I turn the fire on under the pan while breaking up the meat and any remaining water steams out.
