Friday Weekend Warm-Up – May 17, 2019

Friday Weekend Warm-up: This weekend, make sure you continue to read your Advantages List and your Response Cards. Continually remind yourself why you’re doing this and what you’ll get in return. Doing so will hopefully motivate you to stay on track!

Think Thin Thursday – May 16, 2019

Think Thin Thursday Tip: Sometimes dieters give in to the sabotaging thought, “I just don’t care.” If this is you, remember, “Even when I tell myself I don’t care about losing weight, I really do. There’s NEVER a time when I wouldn’t choose weight loss over anything I was about to eat.”

Wednesday Sabotage – May 15, 2019

Wednesday Sabotage: I can’t believe I gave in to that craving. I can’t do this. I should just give up.
Response: Learning to lose weight and keep it off is a process and it takes time. I’m not going to learn it overnight, and I’m not going to be good at it overnight. Just because I gave in once, doesn’t negate all the other times I didn’t. I need to take an accurate picture of how things are really going and acknowledge that while I’m not perfect, I’m better than I was. As long as I keep working at it, I’ll keep moving forward.

Tuesday Reality Check – May 14, 2019

Tuesday Reality Check: Don’t compare your eating to anybody else’s. No one else is exactly your height/weight/activity level WITH your exact same weight loss goals. Just because someone can eat something (or can’t), doesn’t mean you can (or can’t!). Make decisions based on what you need to do for YOU, not on what anyone else is eating or not eating.

Monday Motivation – May 13, 2019

Monday Motivation: It’s important to keep in mind that dieting and losing weight is SUPPOSED to get hard from time to time. It’s not easy (or even neutral) all the time. It gets harder for everyone, and then it gets easier again. These are life-changing goals you’re working toward; it’s worth putting up with some “hard” in order to achieve them.

Friday Weekend Warm-Up – May 10, 2019

Friday Weekend Warm-up: Old habits are hard to break and easy to slip back into. This is why in dieting every single time DOES matter because every single time you’re either reinforcing the old, adverse habit or the new, helpful habit. This is especially true on weekends when bad habits tend to be most rampant. This weekend don’t be fooled – this time matters!

Think Thin Thursday – May 9, 2019

Think Thin Thursday Tip: There’s a difference between physical satisfaction and psychological satisfaction. If you’ve eaten a reasonable portion of food and you want more, remind yourself that while you may be experiencing a lack of psychological satisfaction, physically you’ve had enough so it’s time to stop eating.

Tuesday Reality Check – May 7, 2019

Tuesday Reality Check: It’s important to separate eating from exercise. Exercise to be physically and mentally healthy, not so that you can take in extra calories.

Monday Motivation – May 6, 2019

Monday Motivation: Remember, it’s a give and take. In giving up some food, some of the time, you’re getting all the benefits of losing weight. It’s not as if you’re limiting your food for nothing or to punish yourself – it’s just the opposite. It’s important to continually remind yourself of everything you get in return!
