This weekend, whatever the food decisions is that’s right in front of you that moment, focus on making it a good one. A successful weekend is good decision after good decision, but you don’t have to make them all at once. Concentrate on one at a time this weekend, and by Sunday night you can feel great about all you’ve accomplished.
If you’re worried about turning down food that someone is offering you, ask yourself:
Compared to other disappointments in that person’s life, how disappointed will s/he really be if I don’t eat this food right now? On the other hand, if I reinforce the tendency to give in, go off my diet, and jeopardize my weight loss, how disappointed will I be?
