    Having delicious, healthy, easy foods in my fridge so that I could throw an amazing breakfast and lunch together quickly this morning since I didn't prepare last night. Raspberries, and snap peas, and soup oh my!

    Stepping on the scale this morning and seeing an unexpectedly low number.

    Balancing my weekly calories so that I can have indulgent meals, drinks, or day. Having the tools to lower or increase calories in my "usual" meals and daily menus as needed to balance out workouts or indulgence.

    What works for me most days is just reminding myself why I want it.

    I'm going to try that. thanks for posting.

    Yep. Exactly this. It took me quite some time to learn awareness, but once I started thinking about my choices in terms of how they affect my goals, things became a little easier.

    Logging my food! I had what you would call cheat foods but I balanced that with other meals. I don't need to cut any one food, I just need to work then into the big picture and pay attention to my portions.
    . I seem to have issues with moderation

    Looking at the restaurant menu ahead of time and planning what I would order. The menu didn’t have calorie counts, so I took a little time looking things up and figuring out the counts as best I could. It was just sushi, so not that difficult, but I added in a couple of beers, too. I came in just at my daily calorie goal (but possibly over on sodium!).

    Also, avoiding the appetizers that others ordered and passed around. I stuck to my plan! (Well okay, I did have a single fried pickle slice)

    Being ok with an expected mistake worked for me yesterday. Still under maintenance (barely) and just letting it go.

    Today I adjusted my settings to lose 1lb/week from 2 lbs/week. I was too hungry. And while it's pretty early to be done with all my cals, my back hurts and my pills will make me sleepy, so I won't be up much longer. Should be able to get to tomorrow without much trouble.

    Ugh, today was a high-appetite day due to ovulation. I usually save up calories for after dinner, but this evening I'm skipping the after-dinner snack and just having hot tea. I'm still a little over my calorie goal, but definitely under maintenance.

    Planning ahead. It's my birthday and I plan to have cake. Gotta get a bit of extra exercise and plan on the extra calories. I dont even plan on meeting my goal--maintenance for me when cake is IN THE HOUSE.

    There's a reason it isn't here very often :)

    I had a banana and a bar of chocolate on my desk......I ate the banana and resisted the chocolate......

    I'm impressed. I cannot keep chocolate at my desk. It's just one of those things I've learned about myself. Fortunately, my colleague occasionally brings some to share and b/c I don't believe in being greedy, I only take what I can fit into my calorie budget for the day. I've even forgotten I had "her" candy in my desk for a few weeks (I put it in a drawer I rarely need to open).

    So sorry you are feeling crummy. I hope you have it under control by now.
