Doughnut or healthy cereal? Ask yourself and wait for the answer before choosing. Today, I chose cereal because I really want to see a lower number on the scale this week. Then I waited for that inner voice. When the inner voice agrees, the choice is a lot easier and happier!

Whenever you’re considering making an unnecessary purchase, wait thirty days and then ask yourself if you still want that item. Quite often, you’ll find that the urge to buy has passed and you’ll have saved yourself some money by simply waiting.
Ask yourself if you are truly happy with yourself, if the answer is no then it is time to change things.
I was so miserable being overweight that any discomfort I felt changeling my eating patterns did not compare to what i had been feeling. And using Sparkpeople was not miserable at all.
I learned this from a Pastor at church and it really works. When you see something you really want to buy ask yourself if you just want it or if you actually need it. If you are just wanting it and not needing it then step away, leave the store and wait a day or two. If you still want it then go back and get it, if you don't, then you just saved yourself some money.
How many items do you have laying around your house just because you wanted it, how often do you use the "wanted" items. How deep are they buried in your closet? Save some money, walk away and take a time out before you purchase the item, make sure that it's needed and not just wanted. 306
