November 2, 2016 – Wednesday Sabotage

Sabotaging Thought: It’s okay to eat this because if I don’t, I’ll disappoint my friend.

Response: If I eat off plan, I’ll disappoint MYSELF. Besides, my friend's disappointment will likely be momentary but the disappointment I’ll feel when I go off plan, shake my confidence, and possibly gain weight will last for so much longer. During the holiday season I might have to temporarily disappoint other people often in order to not more majorly disappoint myself.

November 1, 2016 – Tuesday Reality Check

Do you have lots of Halloween candy hanging around your house? If so, MAKE A PLAN!! Decide how much and when you get to have it. Not having a plan makes it too difficult to overcome cravings. For many people it works best to just get rid of the candy (donate it, toss it, give it away) but if that’s not possible then make sure you have a plan.
