Be patient. While cultivating that virtue isn’t exactly painless, it may help to know that keeping weight off generally gets easier over time.
When your weight loss efforts lead to boredom or too much self-focus, get occupied with something else. You eat more if you’re bored, especially if eating in front of the TV.
Eating less without feeling denied is as close as your dinnerware. That’s because while a small portion served on a large plate can leave you craving more, a smaller plate gives the visual signal that you already have more.
Have a blessed and enjoyable day as you spend time with family and friends. Remember, if you are trying to lose weight, you can still enjoy the meal by putting smaller portions on the plate, eat slowly, and chew your food well.
When you’re trying to eat better or get more exercise, you can be more successful if you do it with a partner or group.
When you go out, share a meal with a friend or your spouse. Split a dessert, even a pint of beer. That way, you don’t feel stuffed, and you save some money.
Keeping your body refreshed with plenty of water may also help your workout, staying hydrated means you can exercise more, and longer, than if you don’t drink water.
