January 29, 2016 – Friday Weekend Warm-up

Remember, your body doesn’t know or care what anyone else is eating; it only knows what you eat. So this weekend, work on eating 100% entirely what works for you, and not letting your food choices be influenced by what others around you are eating.

January 28, 2016 – Think Thin Thursday

One pound at a time. You didn’t gain weight overnight and you won’t lose it overnight, either. Even if it feels like you have a long way to go, as long as you keep working at it you’ll get there. Every pound you lose will feel better than being that pound heavier. One pound at a time!

January 26, 2016 – Tuesday Reality Check

If you think, “I don’t want to accept the things I have to do for dieting” remind yourself, “I have a choice: I can struggle with what I have to do and feel bad, or I can accept that this is the way it is. It doesn’t mean I have to like it but continuing to fight against acceptance will do NOTHING but make it harder for me to reach my tremendously important goals.”

“Whenever you do a thing, act as if all the world were watching.” ~Thomas Jefferson.

If you tend to be a secret eater, remember that your body doesn’t care if no one is watching you eat or if 100 people are. It can be helpful to ask yourself, “Would I eat this if someone were watching?” If the answer is no, then maybe it’s worth working on resisting.

January 20, 2016 – Wednesday Sabotage

Sabotaging Thought: I can’t believe I made this dieting mistake. I’m such a failure.

Response:You don’t drown by falling in the water. You drown by staying there.” ~Unknown

One mistake does not mean I can’t do this and it does not mean I’m failing. The most important thing is that I don’t stay down, but rather that I pick myself back up right this moment keep moving forward.

“Habit is habit and not to be flung out of the window by any man, but coaxed downstairs a step at a time.” ~Mark Twain. 

Habits, especially long-standing ones, don’t change overnight! It’s critical to have realistic expectations for change and recognize that any step forward is a step in the right direction.
