Here's my strategy:
Zumba! It's awesome! I have been going and I think that I might go tonight for a second time. I just love that I can forget I'm working out because we're dancing. And before you get worried, I don't shake anything too much. I don't think I have much of that rhythm, so I just do what I can while being modest. And while turning bright red. That's right - after even 10 minutes of working out, I become a tomato. And it's not pretty.
Water. I love my Camelbak, and it makes it much more fun to drink water. I try to drink a few of those bottles a day, more if I'm working out.
Black. Ok, so this doesn't make me thinner. But when I wear black, I look skinnier. It's tried and true. It'll work for you, too.
One of the things I find about myself is that I need simple, applicable things to integrate into my daily life. No crazy crash diets for me. I'm an extreme person, and I might do really well for a few weeks, and then I might go the other way.
