Take responsibility for your choices. When you eat for emotional reasons, the situation doesn't take control...you GIVE it control. Take that control back! We all make mistakes and wind up giving our control away, but say to yourself "yes, I did that, I gave my control away...but now I am making the choice to take it back!"
I can control my weight! No one else can control that, it's the one thing that belongs to me. I can control what I eat or don't eat. I control if I work out or not. It took a long time to understand this and to take this control back. Feel Empowered!
Letting strongholds go! Understand that you can stop punishing yourself for what ever. You are beautiful and you deserve the best. Sometimes weight loss has nothing to do with food but more with our emotional state.
