Log the bad stuff!

Sometimes when I have a bad eating day, it's tempting to just not log it. Why bother? I know that I went over my goals! But I have found that logging the bad stuff helps me to get it off my chest, and then I can move forward and get back on that wagon that much quicker.

Don't Let Your Slip Become a Downward Slide

Everyone has bad days, EVERYONE. Don't beat yourself up if you have a day or week when you indulge too much. Just find your motivation again and get back on track. Use your food tracker, weigh everyday and celebrate all your accomplishments big or small!

Limiting Night time Eating

I have really honed in on my difficulty in losing weight and that is my night time eating. So for over a week now, I have allotted myself 200 calories or less for my after dinner/before bedtime eating. (Ex. a light fat free yogurt, piece of fruit) or planning something less than 200 calories.

Don't look back!

When I need to get on track, I can't look back. I have to focus on where I want to be and not where I am coming from!

Don't beat yourself up!

If you have a day when you've overeaten,don't beat yourself up-make it your goal to reflect on why you overate so you won't do it again

Not enough chocolate in the world

There will never be enough chocolate or doritos or pizza or whatever your comfort food of choice is to fix what is hurting you. Once you realize that food is never the answer to your problems, you are one step closer to achieving your weight loss goal.
