"Embrace the hunger" Everyone feels hunger from time to time; thin people and fat people and those on diets and those not on diets. People just roll with it - like feeling tired or hot or cold or a little bored. But when we're trying to lose weight we rail against the hunger and feel compelled to fight it. But don't fight it - embrace it. Ah, I'm hungry. I'm human. I'm alive. I feel hunger - that's good - that means I haven't over-eaten. SO I say "embrace the hunger." OK, so it doesn't work every time, but sometimes it keeps me from eating those office donuts.

Crazy little tricks to keep your diet on track
For motivation: on Friday morning, as I'm waking up I ask myself to honestly respond to this question; did I eat healthy foods with an appropriate portion size and was I active enough all week? If I can honestly answer yes, as soon as I get to my office I pull my hidden sticker chart from my desk drawer and add a reward sticker. Believe me, that sticker chart, which is on it's 30th week today, has helped me to make many good decisions over the weeks.

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
When I'm trying to lose weight, every 10 weeks. When I started my latest weight loss journey, I knew that if I weighed myself I'd be discouraged before even starting, so I started eating better and exercising more without stepping on the scale. After ten weeks I told myself I'd check my weight and if it wasn't low enough I'd keep up my new habits for another ten weeks and if my clothes fit right I would weigh myself and that's what I would maintain. So that all worked out right and I'm maintaining and I weigh myself weekly.
