Helpful Hints

If you're like me, you're trying to shed those pesky pounds that crept up on us during the holidays (in my case, they're the same pounds I gained two years ago!!).  I've started a weightloss program with my mother as my teammate/support and I've managed to lose 5 pounds over the course of the past two weeks.  That's pretty good and I'm pretty proud of myself.  I've learned a few little tricks over the years that seem to be helping me this time around and I thought I would share them with you. 

Water - I know we've all heard it a million times "drinking lots of water helps curb your appetite".  Funny, water doesn't taste anything like pizza.  Alas, it does help a little.  I try to drink as much water as I can while at work.  I notice that when I'm constantly hungry, I can usually link it to the fact that I haven't had enough water.  Funny how that works.

Smaller Plates - I try to eat my meals in smaller dishes so it seems like I have a full plate.  I don't notice the difference and I don't eat more than I need to.

Crustless?? - Even just removing the crust from your sandwich can save you a lot in the long run.  A bread's crust is approximately 1/4 of the bread.  So the next time your having a sandwich, take the crust off.  You save yourself some calories, not to mention the carbohydrates.

Stairs - I work on the second floor in my building.  I used to take the elevator up and down everyday, sometimes several times in a day.  Now, I take the stairs.  It's just a quick trip but will pay off in the long run.  ;)
