Small changes add up to big differences while dieting. Switch from cola to diet cola to water. From whole milk to 2% to skim. From fried foods to baked foods. With mayonnaise, salad dressings and sauces, from regular to light. Instead of pouring dressing on a salad, buy the spritzer or dip your fork in a side dish of dressing and eat your salads like that. Try good old graham crackers or saltines if you need something sweet or salty. You'll be amazed at the calories you save compared to a donut or nachos, and you'll be happy you re-discovered treats you grew up on. You get the picture. Little changes do mount up in terms of calories per year. Even if you don't feel you are making a big splash today, keep on seeking those little ways you can cut calories or fat and it will make a difference. Don't ever forget that you are a work in progress. Perfection doesn't come overnight in your quest for a healthy lifestyle change.

Have a blessed day!
