Secrets of a Successful Dieter

Forty pounds lighter, lotsa parties (and two years) later, Weight Watchers meetings leader Liz Josefsberg finally has a grip on her munchies. Her formula:

  1. Relax. "I realized that I can become very anxious at social events, and I eat to keep myself busy. Now I take a half-hour walk before the party to calm my nerves."
  2. Strategize. "Early in the day, I create a plan for what I will and won't eat. If I decide to have a drink, then I won't have dessert. And I don't eat standing up, because experts say our brains may not properly register it."
  3. Hit rewind. "If I have too many mini quiches, I don't continue to stuff my face and wait until the next day to resume my diet. Each minute is a chance to start over."

Great information to reinforce my thinking about the holidays! One can enjoy, but as always in moderation, and be sure to get in a workout, first thing in the a.m., otherwise too many excuses if postponed. (I, myself, have been a jogger for over 40 years, raised a family, a grandmother and in my 70's! This has been my mantra my whole life!)

i like that they ended on a positive note. I think self-esteem is such a huge part of loosing weight. As soon as I started REALLY valuing myself and started having fun I stopped obsessing over foods and the pounds melted off. Love yourself, love food--go overboard on the former not the latter :)
