1. Don’t see them as ‘those last pounds’
How often do you hear people say: man, those last kilos are the hardest! Not at all, says Mieke: “You have to deal with the first kilos in the same way as with the last one.

3. Say ‘no’ more often
Mieke: “I sometimes say: if you already say ‘no’ once or twice a day to something that you actually really crave, you are already maintaining your weight. If you still want to lose some kilos, say more than 1 or 2 times ‘no’. Maybe 5 or 6 times. Be really alert and don’t count yourself rich if you left that slice of apple pie alone that one time. “
4. Keep track of what you eat
This is a very concrete one. Writing down what you eat will make you much more aware of what is consuming you. Because let’s be honest: those few sweets that you pick from the cupboard in between households, you forget after a few seconds. Oh, and calculate your ideal calorie intake right here, then you know exactly what you can eat in a day.
