When I was having a particularly challenging day, I opened the SparkPeople page at work. When I was typing an email, on a conference call, or working on an issue, I would glance at the SparkPeople tab and tell myself, "You have a whole community of people cheering you on." I realized I couldn't let them down or let myself down. This alleviated stress, and made me realize that I am capable of staying on target and not giving up.
If I am out at a birthday party or some other social function and the usual foods are available, I tell myself this... The birthday cake is not going to taste any different than any other birthday cake you have had over the years, so remember how the last one tasted and keep it moving. This is my way of avoiding unwanted calories.
