I trust myself so that I can be happy and lose weight.

I am a Flexatarian because I eat the foods that I really like even when it seems odd to others. When ever I start losing weight a few people that are gaining will give me constant advice. Which often made me doubt myself. But I have lost 8 inches in my waist over 3 months. emoticon

Forgiveness

We don't do it correctly 100% of the time. Guilt won't help. Forgiveness will. We're sooooo worth moving on from our mistakes, taking away a lesson learned, once we've forgiven ourselves for going astray.

Chocolate

I allow myself 3 hershey kisses a day when I have my period and it seems to help the chocolate cravings!

Think and ACT like a Skinny Person

Skinny people eat in moderation, exercise and are active. It isn't about depriving yourself of every pleasure in life... live your life like a skinny person and you will soon be one!

Dealing with Cravings

When I get cravings, I like to postpone them. I tell myself that I can have it on Sunday (for instance). Then when Sunday comes, I'm usually not in the mood for that food. If that doesn't work, I brush my teeth.

Cravings that won't stop

If you have a craving that lasts a little while, go ahead and give in but only eat a piece of what you are craving. And no more than the serving size. To prevent you from going back and chowing down more, brush your teeth and keep some sugar free gum on you.

Cravings

When the cravings are on your mind and you cannot get rid of them despite drinking all of your water, try brushing your teeth! I use a mint flavored toothpaste and am less inclined to want to eat after that. If the munchies are still on your mind, try chewing a couple of sugarless pieces of gum!

track your food before you eat it

I input the food I *think* I am going to eat on sparkpeople before my day even begins. This way I can gauge where I might be liable to overdo it and can adjust my plans accordingly!
