Diet secrets
Oh, and it often really helps to remind yourself of your successes thus far (even the little ones!) as well as the reasons for why you are wanting to become healthier. I have a list of reasons why I want to be healthy hanging up where I can see it on a daily basis, to remind me that the ultimate goal is more than worth the current struggle.

Diet secrets
1. When you are hungry/craving something, start by eating something high-fiber/low calorie (like an apple or a salad). It sometimes helps to fill you up enough to reduce the craving.
2. Herbal tea (no added sugar) is a great way for me to drink more water when I'm sick of the taste of cold water. Adds no calories and the warmth actually makes you feel a little full. My mother's trick was always to add fresh lime or lemon.
3. If there are foods that you passionately love or are craving like crazy, it is sometimes a good idea to indulge in them, albeit in a controlled way (for example, eat one square of dark chocolate every couple days if you are a chocaholic). That may keep the craving enough in check that you don't go out and start binging (say, by eating a whole tray of brownies).
4. Never indulge in a craving unless you have had a firm talk with yourself first in which you really examine whether or not eating that particular food/amount is more important to you than achieving a healthy lifestyle. If you cut out logic and allow eating to be a knee-jerk reaction to a variety of triggers, you are bound to end up eating way too much.
5. Never EVER keep your trigger foods in the house (if that is at all possible). The last thing you need is daily temptation. If you cannot avoid being around them, always be prepared with a healthier snack/meal that you can eat instead.
6. Find someone to report to (someone supportive but also willing to be tough on you when you need it the most). You are much more likely to maintain control if you know you are going to tell somebody else all about your eating/exercise habits of the past week.

Well, I kind of had a hiatus that resulted in some gain, but I'm back in the game now and back where I left off, at least.

Hey, I'm into the yellow/orange bars! Oh, and I ran a 10K a couple weeks ago. It was very fun, and I actually maintained a pace that was slightly faster ...
