Do what you did for the 11 pound loss. I'm guessing that not only did you lose pounds, you also felt better, achieved a better sense of well-being. Embrace that. The pounds will take care of themselves and come off.

You can do this. That's all. You CAN do this.

Sometimes there just aren't enough rocks
find some time to take a long, brisk walk, the longer the better, outdoors. it is a great stress reliever, especially good at getting rid of all this stress we have about food. allow yourself a small piece of that three-layer cake once a week. sorry - I know you asked for low cal filling snack ideas but I made this about what works for me.

Excited about loosing this extra weight
It is a good place to find support and motivation. Woo hoo on your commitment. Congrats and good luck. Remember - give yourself credit for your successes.

New beginning
Tomorrow was a couple of days ago. How's it going? Remember - if you slip up a little, give yourself some credit for the success you had. It's a lifelong commitment to changing attitudes and habits, so seconds on dessert on a day you didn't intend to do that isn't a disaster.
