Don't choose the easy way out!

When in doubt, don't choose the easy way out!

It's easy to skip exercise, but the guilt is hard.
It's easy to have another helping, but hard to work those calories off.
It's easy to be negative, but hard to deal with the sadness.

Go with the harder option now to have an easier ride later.

Tough exercise is hard, but the results are good.
Lower (healthy) calorie intakes are hard, but the results are good.
Positive talk is hard, but the results are good.

Stomachs know REAL hunger, minds & clocks don't!

Relying on my mind to know when I'm hungry doesn't work. I convince myself to eat because it's been (fill in the blank) hours since I ate. Instead, I stopped watching the clock and let my stomach do the thinking.

My mind doesn't tell me when I'm hungry. My stomach does.

Eating when REALLY hungry works for babies, who are mostly at healthy weights. Even naturally slim people do this. Learn to listen to your body again!

Relapse doesn't equal regain!

Relapsing into old habits can make things tough, and you feel even worse when the scale starts to rise. However, always remember that a relapse isn't the same as a regain. A lapse is only temporary. Start afresh RIGHT NOW before the lapse turns into something more serious. You can do it!

Immediate Pleasure VS Eternal Pain

Junk food tastes good right now but an hour later you FEEL the negative effects. Weeks or months later you SEE the negative effects. Something great for a few seconds or minutes isn't worth something horrible for months or years.

Look to the future and get excited!

Instead of being downhearted about the past or the present, focus on small or big positive events that will happen today, tomorrow, next month, or even in the years to come. Don't limit yourself to weight loss/gain events. Having something exciting to look forward to always keeps me pumped!
