  • Slow down at mealtime
  • Get plenty of sleep
  • Watch your portions
  • Prepare your own meals and eat at home
  • Never let yourself get too hungry
  • Eat breakfast
  • Get active

My #1 all-time top weight loss tip!!!!

Top Weight Loss Tips (10 Painless Ways to Lose Weight) from WebMD: 

Add some favorite goodies to your diet, rather than take away.  Foods such as red cherries, strawberries, baby carrots, cherry tomatoes – add to your salad or your lunch bag.  These favorites help you actually look forward to your reduced-calorie regimen, rather than dreading it.

Forget the Workout – in order to stick with it, you’ve got to find something you enjoy doing. Working out may not be your thing.  Explore options and find an activity or exercise you really love doing. 

Walk – when the weather is lovely, so is walking!  But, when the weather is not-so-perfect, the mall or an indoor track is great.  More walking tips include parking your car far from the entrance, taking the stairs instead of the elevator, and signing up for charity walks.   

Switch to lower calorie versions of the foods and drinks you love.  Eat low fat/low calorie dairy foods, drink low-calorie drinks (or water) or try drinking light beer.  

Drink water when you’re hungry!  Really!!  You might be surprised that it’ll help curb your appetite.  

Share a meal when you eat out!  Restaurants serve portions that are plenty for two!  And, you won’t feel so stuffed - plus you’ll save money.

When watching television or during commercials – ride your stationary bike or do some kick boxing.  Get active; fold laundry, pack lunches, sweep the floor.  

Reduce the size of your plate and bowl.  People take visual clues and research shows that most people eat the majority or all of the food in front of them.  Therefore, smaller plate = smaller portion! 

Eat at the table – the TV is distracting and can cause us to eat mindlessly.  

Be patient. Losing weight takes time, but the good news is…it will get easier as time goes on.  Plus, once you’ve lost the weight, as time passes, keeping the weight off will also get easier.  I can personally testify to that!

Summary

 As you can see, these 3 lists are all similar.  These tips are the ones used by successful losers – because they work! 

Start today by implementing just one or two of the easier items on the lists.  Then, add in more as time passes.     

Yes!Yes!!
