  • Great article! One of the things I find when I overindulge on deserts & pastries during the holidays & keep too many "goodies" on hand is that it then becomes a hard-to-break habit for me & I find myself craving desert after dinner every day instead of a more heathy snack of fresh fruit. - 12/9/2007 12:48:57 PM
  • I have this dress that I want to wear for Mother's Day. I have it hanging on the back of my bedroom door. When I am offered extra yummies loaded with fat and calories...I picture that dress. That helps me keep my eye on my mini-goal and makes it much easier to resist. I also ask myself...Is it really worth it? I have worked hard to lose 73 pounds. Do you know how many cardio bootcamp minutes I need to burn off a stupid cookie?!!? - 12/9/2007 9:14:06 AM
  • If you are tempted, try tracking/counting in your head or on a notepad. If you still want it after looking at those numbers, it's probably okay. - 12/9/2007 12:46:07 AM
  • Taking smaller portions & eating mindfully, savoring everything, makes enjoyment of holiday food more intense. On Thanksgiving I ate this way. Everything tasted SO GOOD, & I felt happy & satisfied. I did go 300 calories over my normal allotment that day, but by the next Monday I had lost another pound. - 11/27/2007 11:49:31 AM
  • If you feel you won't have the willpower to say NO, then right down some of these points on a 3x5 and take it with you to look at and remind yourself. Don't listen to your INNER BRAT, who is a liar. - 11/27/2007 9:18:57 AM
