September 2, 2016 – Friday Weekend Warm-up

If you’re going to be eating around other people this weekend and think, “Everyone will think negatively of me if I eat differently,” remind yourself, “First of all, it’s likely that some people will be pleased that I’m losing weight and others won’t notice or care what I’m eating. But even if people do notice and even if they do think something negative, SO WHAT?!”

September 1, 2016 – Think Thin Thursday

When you want to eat something that’s not on your plan, tell yourself, “Oh, well.” Oh, well means: I don’t like this situation [that I can’t at this moment eat this food I want] but there’s nothing I can do to change it, not if I want to reach my goals. So I have to accept it, stop struggling against it, and move on.
