Take-Aways #11

- BOOST YOUR COMFORT QUOTIENT: Losing weight isn't only about enhancing how you look on the outside; it's also about improving how you feel in your own skin. Focusing on boosting that comfort quotient can keep you motivated throughout the weight-loss journey.

- STAND UP TO FOOD PUSHERS: Whenever a host pressures you to eat something you'd like to avoid at a social gathering, tell her you'll either try it later or that what you reall have your eye on is another (healthier dish on the table. Complimenting a food pusher on something she's offering will distract her from her agenda and help you to stick with yours.

- FOCUS ON THE PRESENTATION: If you arrange your food creatively on the center of a plate with a large rim, you'll be giving yoour eyes and mind a real treat - and you'll be practicing portion control at the same time.
