This is not an original idea!
For those of you wondering (and those who are not), I came up with this whole idea to lose weight by not dieting, but by making a few healthy changes from an article I read in last months "Self" magazine. The article is entitled "Be A Diet Success, Diet advice that works". They list several changes to make that can lead to a few pounds lost here and there and the reason it works. Suggestions and pounds you could lose are "skip all soda, 1 to 8 pounds, average 4" (I'm going to have to wait till a get a little further in this experiment to do this one, I am totally addicted to Diet Coke and its gonna be hard), "Eat breakfast, even if you're not hungry, 3 to 8 pounds, average 5" (the inspiration for this week), "Use smaller plates and glasses, 0-3 pounds, average 1", "Banish trigger foods from your home, 1 to 10 pounds, average 6" (bye,bye, Cheez-its), "Rate your hunger before deciding to eat, 0-4 pounds, average 1" and "Dine out less often, 2-11 pounds, average 6" (WOW, I hope that one works!). So if I can lose just the average amount by making these changes that would be a weight loss of 23 pounds. I'm not giving up much, just making healthier decisions. Don't worry I will be adding exercise to all this soon. I've just got to figure out a way to do it. Wish me luck on that one!
