Yay - It's Friday!!!!!
Normally I weigh a certain amount. I'm pretty used to weighing that amount, I wear a size 4 in jeans and pants and that works for me. I maintain this weight by eating half of what is on my plate. I eat until I'm not hungy, but I don't stuff myself. I find that I'm a lot more productive and energetic when I eat smaller portions.
However, in the past few weeks my eating habits have gotten out of control. I'm eating all day and I'm eating chips and peanuts and pretzels and chocolate and I'm eating everything on my plate at lunch and dinner. Not surprisingly I picked up a few pounds and my jeans are very tight and I hate that.
So, instead of doing some big atkins or south beach diet I'm trying to just doing portion control. I'm drinking tons of water, I cut all soda out of my diet. I'm eating fruit during the day. At lunch I might get a hamburger, but no fries or a chicken sandwich, but no chips. I've been doing this for about a week now. I feel better, but I havent tried the jeans on yet - that will be the true test.
What are your favorite weight loss tricks??
I'm also really loving this Mary Kay stuff. I am surprised at how far they've come from ten years ago when I tried it.
Oh, and BRAVO to America's Next Top Model for finally picking a plus sized model to win! I was really happy to see that. I love how they consider a girl that wears a size 10 to be plus sized. I think that's healthy size. Sheesh!
