September 30, 2015 – Wednesday Sabotage

Sabotaging Thought: I’m too busy to eat healthfully right now.

Response: That’s just an excuse to eat unhealthy food. In this day and age, there are almost always healthy options available. It may not be what you most feel like eating, but it may also be what will help you reach your goals.

September 29, 2015 – Tuesday Reality Check

Remember, cutting out entire categories of food may work for weight loss, but it doesn’t work for weight maintenance. If it’s something you like, guaranteed you’ll eat it again in the future. It’s critical figure out now how you’ll handle that so you don’t go overboard when you do.

The most successful dieters and maintainers are NOT those who never make mistakes – rather they are those who make mistakes and then get right back on track. You do not have to be perfect in order to lose weight and keep it off. What you do need is to be willing to accept mistakes and recover from them right away.

Even if you get off track during the day, make every effort to bounce back and end the day on a strong note. Doing so will mean you get to start the next day already back on track, instead of having to gear up and recover from the day before. It’s a much, much stronger position to be in.

September 23, 2015 – Wednesday Sabotage

Sabotaging Thought: I just don’t have time for healthy eating and exercise.

Response: If I don’t make time for those things now, it’s likely that at some point I’ll have to make time for an illness. Either way I’m going to have to make time.

 

September 22, 2015 – Tuesday Reality Check

If you want something you’ve never had (permanent weight loss) you’re going to have to do things you’ve never done. Doing it the same was as before will yield the same results.

Whenever a dieter asks us, “Dieting is so hard, why I am I doing this?” We always respond, “Great question! Why ARE you doing this?” Keeping in mind at all times exactly why weight loss/weight maintenance is worth it to you will help you stay motivated to keep doing what you need to do.

September 18, 2015 – Friday Weekend Warm-up

You do deserve to relax on weekends, but you don’t deserve to be overweight and feel badly about yourself. Fortunately are many, many ways to relax that don’t have to do with food. This weekend, be deliberate about working some other relaxation options in.

September 17, 2015 – Think Thin Thursday

Make sure you have the healthy foods you need available and convenient. If you have junk food in your house, you’ll eat junk food. If you have healthy food, you’ll eat that.

September 16, 2015 – Wednesday Sabotage

Sabotaging Thought: I’m so mad about the dieting mistakes I made this week. 

Response: It’s about progress, NOT perfection! If I expect perfection, then mistakes will be much more painful and seem like a much bigger deal. Once I accept that mistakes are part of the process, I’ll be able to recover from them more quickly.
