How I Lost It

I shrank my plate size.

I eat dinner on a salad plate to help control my portions. I still have a satisfying meal — a protein, starch, and veggie — but I don’t overeat.

I make holiday substitutions.

My low-cal version of pumpkin pie: A souffle with 1/2 cup canned pumpkin, 3 ounces softened cream cheese, and pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and Splenda to taste. I combine everything with a hand mixer, microwave for one minute, and top with fat-free whipped cream.

I snack on filling foods.

Instead of eating junk, I choose smart between-meal treats, such as two small slices of protein-packed cheese and a cup of water-filled fruit, like strawberries, blueberries, or watermelon.
