Slimming Tips that worked for them and can work for you!

Step off the scale

“Don’t weigh yourself every day! My weight always fluctuates, and this used to shatter my motivation. I currently weigh [myself] just once a week, usually on Fridays…before weekend damage sets in.” —Aimee Beardsley, Santa Monica, Calif.

Hit the books

“I spent hours in the local Barnes & Noble, at the library, and online looking up everything from weight-loss exercises to the actual chemistry of the body. It was like the blinders were taken off. Now I finally understand how my body works—it’s kept me motivated.” —Emily Walters, Houston

Get saucy

“Substitute vegetables (like asparagus, broccoli, and cauliflower) instead of pasta in dishes, and have just veggies with the sauce. It fills you up for way fewer calories and adds more fiber to your diet—and you still get to enjoy the sauce.” — Jenny Yonally Smith, Alexandria, Va.

Keep it fresh

“I try to only buy groceries that are on the sides of the supermarket. I learned this in a foods-and-nutrition class, and it really works. All your produce, fresh meats, dairy, etc., are pretty much always on the outer aisles of the store. I only go to the middle ones for what I absolutely need.” — Tiffany Owen, Tempe, Ariz.

Drink plenty

“Make water your best friend; it keeps you full and gives you flawless skin.” — Jessica Fox, Chicago
