Staying warm prevents me from eating to get warm. In this way, my favorite comfy sweatshirt, cardigan, and even dolphin blanket are essentials for weight management around my house. As winter approaches, make sure you have non-food ways to stay warm.
Make sure you have wearable warmth in your car, office, and anywhere you spend sedentary time too, not just at home.

Cheap Warming Tray No Electricity and Party Helper
A metal cupcake pan bottom of stainless kitchen sink...put a few tea lights in pan. Space candles as needed. Put a metal cookie tray that overlaps the sink...leaving air gaps along sides. The tray got warm pretty quickly and it was perfect for keeping our mugs of coffee/cocoa warm in a cold room when the power went out. The tea lights last for hours. CAUTION: Tray can get HOT depending on number of candles and an open flame is a fire hazard...the more candles, the more heat. 148
We positioned the tray upside down thinking it would collect the heat more evenly underneath....not sure if that matters or not.
Might try this when we have a party if we need something to be kept warm...love not having to store another warming tray.
