November 9, 2011 – Wednesday Sabotage

Sabotaging Thought: Dieting is too hard, it’s not worth it.

Response: Dieting IS but it also IS worth it. Telling myself "it’s not worth it" is just an excuse to give up and I have to pay no attention to that thought. The advantages of losing weight and the positive impact it will have on every area of my life makes it unquestionably worth it.

If you think, “I’ve been on a diet for 20 years. I’m just not the type of person who can lose weight,” remind yourself, “I’m different now because I’m learning critical skills I didn’t know before. I CAN lose weight, and I will keep losing weight AND keep it off because I will continue to use my skills.”

November 2, 2011 – Wednesday Sabotage

Sabotaging Thought: Since it’s almost the holidays, I can’t possibly lose weight at this time.

Response: That’s just a sabotaging thought. While it may be more difficult at this time of year with all of the extra treats around, I’m ultimately in charge of every bite of food I eat so the holidays don’t have to derail me.

Now that Halloween is over, consider throwing away or donating leftover candy and treats. If you think, “But that would be a waste of money,” remind yourself, “The money is already gone. Eating all of these treats and gaining weight will not bring it back.” 

October 31, 2011 – Monday Motivation

Happy Halloween! Remember: I can eat all the Halloween candy I want OR I can be thinner, healthier, more confident, etc. I can’t have it both ways. Take a look at your goals and make a decision for how you will handle the influx of treats at this time.

October 27, 2011 – Think Thin Thursday Tip

Halloween is just around the corner. We advise our dieters to wait until the last minute to buy candy so they don’t have to put forth the effort to resist it every day unnecessarily and also to buy candy that they don’t particularly like. Anything you can do to reduce the struggle is worth it!
