    Cutting sugar out of my tea. I have 3-5 cups a day and was putting multiple TABLESPOONS of sugar in each cup. The weekly calories I saved was crazy.

    This can't be said enough. Take the extra 5 minutes and weigh your food. I think it will shock a lot of people what actual serving sizes are. A table spoon isn't as much as you can pile onto it.... If you're going to take the time to meal prep, do it right!

    I just got a food scale this week! Eyeballing portions wasn't working.

    I drink tea through out the day instead of energy drinks or pop. I still have a morning energy drink for the caffeine kick, but I’ve greatly reduced my calories & plus other benefits of not ingesting copious amounts of taurine & whatever else is in my drinks

    I cut out soft drinks completely. Now I only have 1 about every 3 months or longer. I also started drinking unsweet tea and black coffee. I lost 10 lbs when I first start by simply cutting off my soft drink intake.

    - I vowed to myself to stop making excuses. Cliche and sounds easy but it’s the best change in mindset I could have had to be on track to a sustainable healthy life style.
    - Swapped milk for almond milk.
    - Said no to every sweet treat in the office unless it was a jam doughnut. There were never jam doughnuts and when there were, it felt good.
    - plan my meals for the week. Not necessarily prep. Just plan. Kept me on track.

    Switched dr pepper for 2l water, (one 500ml bottle a week now as a treat). I also stopped adding sugar to my coffee and made 3 of my 5 daily cups black, so cut out some milk cal too.

    No soda, alcohol, or juice. Too many calories and there are far more satisfying places to get my calories.
