My Weight Watchers Update

imagesCA0FYBTPIt’s been a while since I posted about my weight loss.  I am continuing in the maintanience  portion of WW right now.  I’m over 5 months at goal.  I’m very pleased about this and knew it would be the hardest part of the whole program.  I also wanted to share part of a 25 point list as things to remember/incorporate with weight loss.  (These come from Weight Watchers)  Note: not all of these apply to every person but take the ideas and try to make them good habits for life.
1. Good things come in small packages
Here’s a trick for staying satisfied without consuming large portions: Chop high-calorie foods like cheese and chocolate into smaller pieces. It will seem like you’re getting more than you actually are.

2. Get “water-wise”
Make a habit of reaching for a glass of water instead of a high-fat snack. It will help your overall health as well as your waistline. So drink up! Add some zest to your six to eight glasses a day with a twist of lemon or lime.

3. Herb it up
Stock up your spice rack, and start growing a small herb garden in your kitchen window. Spices and herbs add fantastic flavor to foods without adding fat or calories.

4. Slim down your soup
Make a big batch of soup and refrigerate it before you eat it. As it cools, the fat will rise to the top and can be skimmed off the surface.

5. Doggie-bag that dinner
At restaurants that you know serve large portions, ask the waiter to put half of your main course in a take-home box before bringing it to your table. Putting the food away before you start your meal will help you practice portion control.
