Hi-I am looking forward to the journey of finally living well! This time I will truly be patient and kind with myself. This time I am going to deal with the emotions first- then the controlling of what I eat will be easier!

So now it's time to throw down the gauntlet and list a few rewards..........

When I reach a 20 pound loss- Massage-DONE 12/4/08 in Tallinn

When I reach a 30 pound loss- Hair cut and color at a swanky NYC salon.

When I reach a 35 pound loss- A day of beauty at the spa.
(I'll be past a big number and I want to celebrate!!!!)

When I reach a 40 pound loss-Massage (I love them!)

When I reach a 50 pound loss-Plan a trip to somewhere fun!

....I've been avoiding doing this for I think I was planning on failing, but no more! As I said before, this time is different! :-)

    I'm reading the BECK DIET SOLUTION, which isn't a "diet" but she teaches how to THINK like a THIN person. (Got a copy from the library.) I recommend it to everyone. (We have a support team here at Sparks.)
    Walking for five minutes is better than walking for zero minutes. Exercise is essential even if I don't do very much at first. I can build up the amount that I do over time, but I have to start somewhere.
    Hunger is never an emergency. It is only mildly uncomfortable. I can tolerate it. It will come and go.
    I really do deserve credit for breaking old habits and it is essential for building my confidence. Once my confidence grows everything will become so much easier.
    If I want to lose weight permanently, I can't make exceptions. I'd rather be thinner. I can't overeat on week-ends or any other time.
    I have to develop the habit of eating every bite slowly, while sitting down, so I can fully enjoy it. It is worth developing this habit, so that I can have a lifetime of being thinner.
    I'm not going to let any minor setback ruin everything I've accomplished. One mistake doesn't ruin my diet, but falling back into old habits will.
    I will recommit to my diet right here, right now!
    Exercise is not negotiable for good health. It needs to be a daily lifetime habit and I need to make it so. The hardest part is getting started. I'll feel so much better when I'm done. So get started!
    OH WELL! I'm going to ignore this craving. I'm going to do something and let it subside. I'm turning my attention to something else, like exercise.
