calorie intake
Try incorporating avocados into your daily meal plan. They are high calorie. low fructose, and super good for you. I eat one with a dollop of hummus almost every day.

Frustration
I find that I sometimes plateau for 2 or 3 weeks and then like magic I'll drop a bunch all at once. I can't explain it, I just know it happens. Keep doing what your doing and it will be fine. If after a couple weeks you still haven't dropped, you may want to mix up your intake a bit. If you do low cal, try moving to low fat. If you do low carb, try moving to low cal, etc... I find that sometimes I just need to let my body have the particular food I've been denying it and then my fat cells relax and let go! :) Best of luck! Don't let this momentary delay frustrate you. Remember to breathe deeply!

Diet secrets
Stress is a diet killer. The more stressed I am, the more I mindlessly stuff food in my mouth. When I can, I get out of the office and go for a quick walk to clear my head. But, that's not always possible. One trick I have been able to do successfully is to keep a lot of sugar free gum around. I get every flavor under the rainbow (there's even some that tastes like apple pie)and then instead of reaching for the bag of pretzels, I grab the gum. I just find it's easier to stay on the diet wagon, than to fall off. With every slip seems to be harder to climb back on again. And believe me I have fallen off more times than I can remember.

explaining what you eat!
I have been lacto-ovo vegetarian most of my life. I tried going back to eating meat for awhile, and found that I just didn't feel right. I learned to cook meat for my husband, and in turn he has learned to make a few fantastic vegetarian dishes. As for our son, we offer him meat, but don't expect him to eat it all the time. When he is older and can read his own body better, I'll let him decide. But back to your question... If someone asks, I simply tell them I feel better when I don't eat meat. I don't get into a socio-political debate about it, my response is honest and simple.

When you're out and about, assume what you picked up to eat has more fat and calories than you think
Then when you get home and really figure it out, you will either be happily surprised that you didn't over indulge. Or you'll be glad you stopped when you did! I went to the fair, and HAD to have a fried artichoke heart sandwich. I didn't want to stop and use my phone to look up every ingredient, so I just threw in a fried chicken sandwich with sauce figuring it would be close. Then I felt guilty about the 600 calorie lunch, skipped the beer stand, drank lots of water, and avoided the curly fries all together, but did give in on a free scoop of ice-cream ;) . When I got home and actually dialed in all the ingredients, the fat and calories were WAY less than I had estimated and I was able to stay within my RDI for the day. The fat was still a little high, but hey, I only go to the fair once or twice a year! 8)

Wii Games
I love my Wii fit plus. I can get a work out in during a party with close friends/family. We're all sweatin' by the end of the night and laughing too! When I just need to burn a few extra calories I will set it to free step and march away while I watch a stupid sitcom on tv. I forget I've worked out until I try to walk in my high heels the next day and my calves are burning!

Vitamins For Women
I recently started taking Nature's Way Alive! Once Daily High Potency. For me it has been like a wonder "drug." I have more energy, and my vitamin D deficiency is gone. I had blood work done 6 months apart before and after making the change (and a few other changes, like taking flax seed oil and oh, dieting!) and saw real results. I know the flax helped my HDL levels and I was for half that time taking a mega prescription dose of D, but I swear I can feel a difference in my energy levels with this vitamin. I even wrote the company telling them so, and I am not the typical type of person to do that. For years I took any old OTC vitamin thinking they were all alike and really not wanting to make the jump to the "take a fist-full of pills three times a day" vitamin category. This is one a day, and I get it at my local owned grocery store. Check it out. Alive with the ! Oh, and PS, it makes your pee super bright yellow. My husband and I both commented that it must be doing something cause that was new! :)
