Constantly looking forward to being at my goal weight in the future and not stopping to think about how long it will take me to get there. Even with exercise, for example, if I stopped to think about how miserable it might be when I got there, I wouldn't go. Instead I just get up as soon as my alarm goes off and go...and I feel so much better about myself afterward that I want to do it again.

I donít know about you guys but one of my major down falls wants something sweet to eat right after a meal for an example a bowl of cereal. Iím sure itís a mental thing and Iíve somehow trained myself to grave it but nonetheless Iíve discovered sugar free Jell-O (1 serving) with Cool Whip Lite (2 tbl) is a very satisfying snack for your sweet tooth. The best part is itís only 30 Calories!! Heck, have two servings 211
Do you like to snack after dinner? Try brushing your teeth. It's a mental thing, when you brush your teeth your mind thinks it's the end of the day and you don't need to eat anymore. Plus, no one likes to get rid of that fresh-breath feeling :-)
I follow SP & Judith Beck's (Ph.D) book called "The Beck Diet Solution". She builds a mental strategy that works for me. She outlines responses we might make to her strategies and provides the healthy mental responses to counter our resistance. It's at the library and it's working for me. Cravings have vanished. I've talked myself through difficult eating challenges by using her techniques. I think it's great.
