When Facing Temptation...

This Sparked Me!

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.

    that's a great thought! I heard recently -'think 2 steps ahead'. This really helps me to get beyond the desire for that dessert or extra portion to how I'll be feeling after I eat it.

    each day is difficult in the beginning.. and believe me i have had many too many beginnings.. write it down.. look at what you have written.. own it.. do not lie to you.. if its done each day.. it will get better.. some need more work than others.
