Solo journey

Listen to no one but yourself (okay, maybe your doctor or trainer, if needed). But tune out those around you who comment, discourage, or frustrate you. Shake off their negativity and focus on your journey. In the end, it's you against yourself. No one else.

I got this from Martha Beck - not original to me. I Substitute Inedible Nourishment when emotional eating strikes. Stroke the dog for 5 minutes. Read something that feels indulgent. Take a bubble bath. You'd be amazed how often the craving melts away.
