I took a part-time job at a major sports and fitness retailer. The pay isn't fabulous, but the employee discount sure is! Now I have quality workout wear in my new size, a foam roller, and fitness gifts for family.
I remind myself "What I REALLY want matters more than what I want right NOW."
Remembering that I have made weight loss and a healthy lifestyle the priority helps me put temptations and cravings in perspective--it takes away their power, and empowers me to make mindful choices.
