If you’re likely to encounter food pushers this weekend, it’s time to start saying no!

Remember, if you had a severe nut allergy and someone offered you food with peanuts in it, you would turn it down NO MATTER WHAT! Losing weight, being healthy, and being happier are just as legitimate reasons to say no, so stick to your guns and stand firm.

March 2, 2017 – Think Thin Thursday

If you think, “It’s okay to eat because I just need to feel better NOW,” remind yourself:

“While it may be true that I need to feel better, it’s not true that I need to eat to feel better. There are other things I can do to help myself feel better that won’t cause me to take in extra calories and gain weight. Besides, if I eat to feel better now, the only thing I’ll be doing is signing myself up to feel badly later – when I feel guilty about what I’ve eaten, when I’ve reinforced bad habits, and when I've gain weight. Do something else that will help me feel better now and later.”

March 1, 2017 – Wednesday Sabotage

Sabotaging Thought: Losing weight is so hard. Is it really worth it?

Response: I only question whether or not it’s ‘worth it’ when I’m in an off-track period. When I’m on track, in control, and feeling great, I never question whether or not it’s worth it. So is it worth it? 100% yes!
