Having one day a week that is dedicated to household chores includes precooking for the next few days. I love preparing several main courses~meatloaf, buffalo burgers, chicken veggie patties, etc. When doing this I know the whole family is taken care of, and I wont be tempted to be unhealthy. :o)
If there is enough time to do a couple sugar free jello salads with fresh fruit, and or veggie washing and precutting, veggie steaming, that is even better. Whole meals already prepared allows for more family time each evening.

A good start to stay positive is to reflect on the times that you were unstoppable in some point of your life. Retrieve that information and rebuild. Keeping in mind that your mind body and spirit have to have goals to make everything unite. 104
Home work on YOURSELF AND YOURSELF ONLY IS THE KEY TO YOUR SUCCESS
(I live alone, so this is easy for me.) Prep your meal...have everything ready to go. Then, make & eat your first course - salad or soup - & THEN cook & eat your main course. By the time you eat the main course, you will begin to feel full from the salad (or soup) & naturally eat less.
Even when making a roast or other such longer cooking meat, don't slice it until you have eaten your first course. Meal will be hot & you body will start to send the signals to your brain that you are not as hungry as you were.
