So tonight when we went out for supper, I decided to wear a pair of pants that were probably a size too small for me to be comfortable in.

Those stinking things were so tight I could hardly eat!!! Imagine how overjoyed I was at this self-limiting, self-induced, calorie control trick.

Worked well in curbing my calorie intake. Also made it difficult to take a deep breath but that's an entirely different issue!

Its my magic jelly bean of the day.
** Goal 1- 20 pounds
** Goal 2- get back down to wearing size 16 jeans
** Goal 3- normal blood pressure
** Goal 4- well below "One" Derland

LOL. It's all about finding the tools that work, isn't it? Smile

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

Its sort of negative reinforcement but it did the trick! I am going to do this every time we go somewhere good to eat. It'll keep me in line in a hurry!

What a great idea Sherillynn. I will have to remember that next time I go out to eat.

I have read a weight-lifting belt can be highly effective for this.

I heard some french women tie ribbons around their waist so that they'd be aware if it expands while they're eating so they know when to stop! Handy if you have problems with bingeing.

In college we used to wear those stretchy stirrup pants when we went out to eat. We called them "buffet" pants for reasons I'm sure I don't need to explain Smile I didn't have a weight probem in college though thankfully.

I'd choose a tightened belt over uncomfortable pants but always keep a size smaller jeans hanging in the closet to remind me where I want to go.


I'm not losing WEIGHT. I'm converting FAT to MUSCLE to be healthier.
