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 WillPower!
Super-Size It Sally:
Sweet-Tooth Twinkie came in the door confessing her sins over the weekend. Our coaching session was all about willpower and Sweet-Tooth Twinkie admitted she had none when it came to her love of sweets. She said she can't stop eating them, but the coach asked a very good question - are you buying sweets and keeping them in your house? Yes, I have a cabinet full of them, she said under her breath. She said that is your first mistake. Don't put food in your house that you don't want to eat. If you have to go and get it every time you want something sweet, you are less likely to eat it.
Sometimes you just have to clean house and get a fresh start. Get all the tempting foods out of your house. I learned the hard way you can make it harder on yourself to resist temptations by stocking your cabinets with the very food you are trying not to eat. Where is the logic in that?
Lifestyle change of the week!
Have a strategy in place to make it easier to succeed. Don't make it harder by putting temptations in every nook and cranny for easy access. Make it so hard to get the food that it's not worth the effort. Be smarter than the temptation, it will pass.
"You have the power, will you use that willpower to fight temptation and lose weight."
