Do a reality check. Are you taking in more calories than you realize? Try keeping track for a week or so. You may discover something that needs a change. But, don't be too drastic. You might end up overeating if you feel deprived.

Shake up your workouts. Try something new to rev up your engine — maybe that's a dance class or a new exercise DVD. If you always walk the same route, go a little farther. Or, mix in some light jogging.

Give yourself a lift. Muscle burns more calories than fat. So, along with your aerobic workouts, get two or more days a week of strength-training activity.
