I replaced the words "have to" with "choose to" as in "I have to exercise, diet, clean the house etc." to "I choose to exercise, diet, etc. so that I will be healthier and happier". You'll take control of your destiny. Try it in a variety of situations and see how much more empowering it can be

    I have always used the same thinking when talking about food. If I "can't have it", it is harder to deal with than "I don't want it", which makes me in control of my eating instead of the other way around.

    That is the only way exercise and nutritional awareness will become a permanent way of our living. Positive thinking will take us all the way.
