Make yourself shop only at your local organic grocer
I only shop at Trader Joe's. Compared to chain store grocery stores, their products have been instrumental in helping me remove chemicals, pesticides, bio-engineered/modified, antibiotic enhanced, etc. foods from my diet. It's easy to only shop there and feel better... Just don't shop anywhere else!
I'm not associated with Trader Joe's in any way other than being a customer that feels healthier thanks to them!
If you've been complimented, remember it for a future occasion.
Whenever I start to feel negative, I try to remember how far I've come. To do this I just need to remember the number of people who have commented on my increased fitness levels and have noticed that I've lost weight and look healthier. If just 1 person has noticed & I feel healthier, its worth it!
I have tried one or two new recipes every week. Cooking is a passion so it has kept my interest and I have been able to lose the weight by doing something I love. The recipes are portion controlled and use healthy foods. I feel healthier and in control
