If you’ve been off track, take some time to reflect on just how good being on track/being in control feels. It’s not always easy but it always, always feels good at the end of the day. It’s not easy, but it’s worth it and you can do it!
Remember, great eating days are GREAT days, period. No matter how many tempting eating situations you find yourself in this weekend, if you stay in control, you’ll only feel happy about it at the end of the day. This weekend, treat yourself to feeling great – which means on-track eating.
If you think, “I can’t get rid of all the leftover Halloween candy; that’s not fair to my kids,” ask yourself, “Do my kids really need to be eating all of this, anyway?” There is a big middle ground between letting them have no candy and letting them have way too much. Maybe they’ll be willing to keep some and can feel good about donating the rest.
