I have learned not to give up and beat myself down when I get off track. I realize I'm human and I'm not perfect. I try to pin point what made me go off track. I look for triggers. Once I recognize them, I strive to correct them. I try to keep all negativity out of my life.224
The only equipment you need for this job is a determined mind set...being true to yourself.
If I start to feel like I am getting in a snacking mood, I ask myself, "Why do I want something to eat right now?" I heard this somewhere, and I wish I credit the proper person for it but, I have used it ever since. "If hunger isn't the problem, then food isn't the solution!"
Having this mind set with help you recognize when you are eating out of boredom, emotionally, etc.
