Oh and this sounds weird but it’s actually really good. Tablespoon of peach flavored balsamic vinegar with sparkling water poured on top tastes remarkably like peach Fanta. And it’s less than ten calories. Fake it til ya make it!

Verrrry sneaky, sis! If it works for you, it's a good plan. Simple as that!
A real speedbump for me is alcohol. A couple glasses of wine out with friends, and I'm ordering allllll the carbs. But I don't want to be a teetotaler. So now, I plan to order a drink that I actually don't really enjoy, so I don't finish it, like a Moscow Mule or a G&T. Less tipsy = more in control of my carb cravings, but still having a fun night out.
Mind you: I haven't STARTED this plan yet. It occurred to me last weekend when I woke up feeling like *kitten* after a tipsy night out that devolved into all the carbs leaping right into my mouth magically.

Tea -- I have to have something to sip on at night and plain water just doesn't do it. I used to drink a glass of wine a night, but now most nights I drink this delicious cinnamon and blackberry tea from Bigelow and save the wine for the weekends.
Not surprisingly, the more hydrated I am the better choices I make, too. I think I must like doing things with my mouth, whether that's eating or drinking something, during the times of day when I'm least active. I have much more energy and my weigh ins are better overall.

Nothing sneaky here but I do have bread with peanut butter every day. Now instead of having a sandwich with 2 slices of styrofoam tasting lite wheat bread I'll indulge and have 1 slice of my preferred Italian bread with 1 T. of p.b. It better fits my taste buds so I'm more fulfilled.
