Wednesday Sabotage – October 21, 2020

Wednesday Sabotage: I just want to snack all evening long.

Response: If I get the urge to snack all evening long (especially if I’ve had a reasonable dinner), then it’s NOT about hunger! It’s about boredom, or being tired, or needing some pleasure. There are many other ways to achieve these ends without sabotaging my weight loss goals, so I’m going to find something else to do.

Tuesday Reality Check – October 20, 2020

Tuesday Reality Check: While we do believe that getting on the scale is a helpful accountability tool, we also believe that it’s just a number! It doesn’t define you or say anything about your character. You are more than that number.

Monday Motivation – October 19, 2020

Monday Motivation: Once you have healthy habits established, eating healthfully will get so much easier because your habits will carry you to where you want to go. It can be hard to get them in place, but it’s worth the effort because the payoff is enormous!

Friday Weekend Warm-up – October 16, 2020

Friday Weekend Warm-up: If you haven’t been meal planning, this Sunday is a great time to start. It will make the week go so much more smoothly, and maximize your chances of staying on track, if you have food decisions figured out in advance.

Thursday Think Tip – October 15, 2020

Thursday Think Tip: The next time you know you have a really stressful situation coming up (like a doctor’s visit for yourself or a loved one), ask yourself: how will I get through this without eating? Make a plan in advance for the ways you will deal with stress and anxiety so you don’t end up turning to food.

Wednesday Sabotage – October 14, 2020

Wednesday Sabotage: The world is too crazy and chaotic right now. I can’t worry about my eating.

Response: I must continue to prioritize healthy eating because that means I’m prioritizing self-care. Getting off track, feeling out of control, watching the scale go up, feeling my clothes get tighter: these things will make me feel so much worse. It’s not worth it.

Tuesday Reality Check – October 13, 2020

Tuesday Reality Check: If you don’t feel like doing what you need to do to eat healthfully this week, do it anyway! Remember that you don’t base other decisions on whether or not you feel like it in the moment (doing things for your kids, putting on your seatbelt, meeting work deadlines, etc.). Put these things in the same category.

Monday Motivation – October 12, 2020

Monday Motivation: Eat better, feel better. Period.

Friday Weekend Warm-up – October 9, 2020

Friday Weekend Warm-up: This weekend, remember, when you say “no” to eating something, you’re also saying “yes” to even better things – losing weight, better health, increased self-confidence, feeling proud of yourself, and more. Focus on what you’re saying YES to! 

Thursday Think Tip – October 8, 2020

Thursday Think Tip: We always want to remind you that it’s okay to get rid of leftovers! If you have highly tempting food in your house, either make a plan for when and how much you’ll have, and/or make a plan to get it out of the house so that it doesn’t tempt you and tax your resistance muscle.
