Delicious Diary Entry
"A healthy dose of motivation with a twist"
My name is Ms. Delicious Diary and my job is to see how my clients are really doing when it comes to their weight loss journey. My favorite clients are Super Size-It Sally and Low-Calorie Lucy, along with their close knit group of friends. They all have their own way of dealing with their issues, and the funniest nicknames to prove it as you will see as you read their diary entries each week. I hold the key to the diary in this special little green bag. My fingers are itching to unlock the diary and see their weight loss or gain, and check their delicious food entries.
Dear Diary: My Coaching Session!
Super Size-It Sally:
Chip-Bag Betty walked into our coaching session with crumbs on her face from a feeding frenzy she had in her car. We all knew what she had been eating, the evidence was all around her mouth. I guess her plans to switch her potato chips for healthy popcorn wasn't working out so well. When she got on the scale to be weighed, it was obvious what she had been eating, and it wasn't popcorn. But the rest of us were struggling too, and as we each weighed in the numbers told the story.The scale doesn't lie even if we lie to ourselves.
My weakness has always been those crunchy salty chips, I loved chips and still do. But they are the rare treat, not an everyday thing for me anymore. The problem with chips are once you start eating them, it's hard to stop with just a few, I want to eat the whole bag. I did learn a few tricks that helped me watch my portion size. I take a handful out of the bag then put the bag away. I stopped eating right out of the bag. I recently decided to stop buying the huge bags, now I just buy the small one serving size instead. You can't eat what's not there right, right! Another thing that helps me not want to eat to many chips is to google the calories and fat that are in them. That little trick will remind you of exactly what you are about to eat. Better yet, google how long it would take you to burn off those delicious calories. Now that is a real eye opener!
Lifestyle change of the week!
The difference between losing and gaining comes down to learning the tricks of the trade. Because it's all the little things we do day in and day out, it's those little tricks that add up to weight loss. Those tricks of the trade can make the difference between eating less without wanting more.
