Keep your own sully of healthy fruit and munchies at work and drink lots to fill up so you are not tempted at night. Often we confuse thirst with hunger

What I know is that the conversation we have in our head with ourselves has a lot of influence on what we do. I'm hearing you be very self critical, which actually increases anxiety and hence, the attraction to what is bad for us. (In this case it's fat food).

When I catch myself doing the same thing, I lighten up and start sweet talking to myself instead. If I was a little girl I'd coo and say encouraging, loving things to me. That will make you feel more secure and calmer inside.

It really doesn't matter if you weight exactly the same for both weddings unless you're wearing the same dress and it wouldn't fit. Give yourself some love here, and let the sweetness of your attitude gently replace the craving for the physical sweets.

Happy New Year!


With grace and self esteem, honor the Passionate Tiger in You. Refresh your personal high regard daily, to live happy, joyous and free!

I am really going to need encouragement to get started! I lost 40# 2 years ago by eating less and exercising daily. I was on a roll! Then I lost 10# for my oldest daughters wedding in 2011. Currently I have gained back the wedding 10# and have another daughter getting married in March 2013! I can't seem to get started - office goodies are too tempting and at home I graze thru the 9-11 pm hours. I can't seem to stop myself!

I am discouraged.
