Moving forward

When you have eaten something not in your eating plan or have found yourself binging don't wait for tomorrow to start over. Stop right now. Walk over to the garbage throw away whatever is left, spit out that mouthful the minute you realize what you are doing is harmful to your health and success.

Get Into The Moment

I've learned this from my doggies -- a bad moment, whether it be a minor slip, a bad day/ week/ weekend, etc is history now so I can put my energy into NOW and focus on 'the good life' all around me

Renew your day

I can renew my day at any point in the day. If I have eaten something I did not plan to eat, I can just keep going from there. I do not have to beat myself up or fall off my plan.

Shine the light of truth

When you're feeling guilty about having a certain food realize the reality of the situation it may not be as bad as you think. Also if it's worse then you think then you know and it's all out on the table! Telling yourself false info just makes things worse!

With out goals we are just wondering aimlessly

We need to set attainable goals. Then we need to keep focused on our goals to be able to reach them.
Find a way to remind yourself of that goal every day, or more often if needed.
Have a reward waiting for you when you meet goal, it will help you keep going.
