DAY 86 MINIMIZE THE DAMAGE

YOU'VE LEARNED MANY TRICKS TO HELP IN YOUR DIETING. BUT, LIFE HAS A WAY OF GETTING IN THE WAY OF YOUR PLANS.

BROWNIES, CAKE OR LASAGNE'S IS CALLING................ YOU WONDER IF YOU SHOULD THROW IN THE TOWEL OR QUIT???

GOING OFF YOUR DIET DOESN'T MEAN YOU DON'T HAVE ONE.

DON'T QUIT OR GIVE UP! STAY THE COURSE.

STOP WHILE ITS SMALL

ADVERTISEMENT CLAIMS YOU CAN'T EAT JUST ONE BELIEVE IT NOT. (LAYS CHIPS)

BUILD A STRONG CONFIDENCE THAT YOU CAN STOP EATING AND GET BACK ON TRACK. EVEN THUR A SLIP OR DETOUR FROM YOUR DIET YOU CAN STILL USE THE TECHNIQUES TO DECREASE THE AMOUNT OF DAMAGE YOU ALLOW TO HAPPEN.

IF TEMPTATION SEEMS TO GRAB YOU-- SIT ON YOUR HANDS, LEAVE THE ROOM OR THROW AWAY THE REST OF THE TEMPTING FOOD.

I WILL USE MY DISTRACTION TECHNIQUES. ALONG WITH PRAYER.

THE SAME TECHNIQUES CAN BE USED AT PARTIES, GATHERINGS OF ALL KINDS. KEEP A LIST OF TRICKS SUCH AS SAVORING THE FIRST BITE, AND POST PONED EATING.

IF ARE YOU WEAK AND FOOD TRIGGERS IS ON THE WAY-- SHIFT YOUR FOCUS ON SOMETHING ELSE OTHER THAN FOOD.

THE TECHNIQUES ALSO WORKS ON VACATIONS. YOU CAN EXPERIMENT BY TRYING OUT A NEW FOOD OR DESSERT LIMIT YOURSELF TO 2 BITES, SAVOR THE FOOD, NOTICE THE FLAVORS, THEN LEAVE THE TABLE AND DO SOMETHING ELSE.


DAY 87 OLD HABITS

A FEW OF YOUR OLD HABITS AND PROBLEMS WITH FOOD HAVEN'T COMPLETED DISAPPEARED SOME MANY LOOK APPEALING AGAIN.

GET RID OF OLD HABITS.
PEOPLE WHO REGAIN WEIGHT SAY THEY SLIPPED BACK INTO THEIR OLD HABITS.

YOU SKIP THE OATMEAL IN THE MORNINGS AND OPT FOR DONUTS INSTEAD FOR BREAKFAST. YOU REMEMBER HOW GOOD THE DONUTS WERE AND THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW YOU ARE AT THE KRISPY CREME DONUT SHOP HAVING THEM AGAIN.

YOU LET A ROUTINE GO. NO EXERCISE. ITS EASIER TO EAT A BAG OF CHIPS THAN TO WALK ON YOUR TREADMILL.

TO PREVENT SLIPPING (OLD HABITS) YOU MAY HAVE TO BREAK THE PATTERN FROM THE BEGINNING.

IDENTIFY TIMES WHEN YOU EAT OUR OF HABIT. THEN DECIDE HOW TO CHANGE YOUR ROUTINE.

CREATE NEW PATTERNS.
IF THERE ARE TIMES WHEN YOU ASSOCIATE TIMES WITH FOOD CHANGE OR SHAKE THINGS UP. IF YOU ALWAYS SEARCH THE CUPBOARDS BEFORE BED TAKE A WARM BATH INSTEAD. WHEN YOU WATCH TV GRAB A GLASS OF WATER INSTEAD OF YOUR USUAL SODA. CHANGE UP THE FAMILY RITUAL OF HAVING ICE CREAM. CHANGE UP EVEN IF YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE CHANGING.
