I download audio books on nutrition and exercise from my public library and listen to them while exercising. I find it does wonders for changing my outlook. You could also listen to them while driving.

Slow and steady.
Eat clean and as close to nature as possible.
Avoid refined, highly processed foods.

For me knowledge is power. I like to read books on nutrition consonantly and all those food documentaries that are out, love them. And I'm always looking and trying new recipes. I find that now when I do come across my trigger foods and the opportunity to indulge in them the first thing that pops in my head is what's bad about them and the consequence for them, extra running, a step back, etc. And this kind of mind set didn't happen to me over night but eventually with patience you train your brain. And with your journey to a black belt, I'm sure you know plenty about patience and training. :) Congrats on the amazing accomplishment.

Pat yourself on the back for all the achievements that you make! Keep a log of every bite you take. If you see it in black and white it really helps. Thinking about having to write it down can make you put it back in the fridge sometimes.
Reward yourself for all the good things and forgive yourself when you fail. With practice you will form healthier habits. emoticon

There is a Soarkmember who has this in their signature (I can't remember who it is now, but the "saying" really sticks with me). I find that I say this to myself quite a bit these days.

*nothing tastes as good as THIN feels*

And good for you to getting to the black belt stage!!! I started tae kwon do classes last year. I have my first gyp.

Hi. I'm a 42 yr old martial artist who has spent the last 12 years training both my mind and body for my up coming black belt test. This is an achievement that I am very proud of. The funny thing is, when it comes to achieving a weight loss goal, I'm falling short on training my mind, and ultimately my body. I have about 60 lbs to lose and don't seem to have the will power to say "no thanks" to my favorite foods. I am taking steps to a healthier lifestyle, I just need to get my head in the game to stay focussed. How do train my mind for this journey? Any advice?
