Look at when you are eating and see if you can change something to make it difficult to eat at that time - sign up for a class, plan to call a friend, etc. -- anything that forces you to stay away from eating opportunities during your vulnerable times.

Put our energy and drive in developing & building the new changes & healthy habits in our life, and not on the bad habits & trips & falls of old that have pulled us down in the past. When we concentrate on the positive we learn to see the positive. Focus on what is working. Progress not perfection.
Pick 1 specific goal (etc to do 10 minutes exercise every day), set a time (when I get home from work) and a place - be specific so that it's measureable. Do this for a month then increase by 10 minutes. Stick to 1 goal at a time or it won't become a habit!! Do too much and you lose track.
Habits take 30 days to form- if you stick to changing 1 habit, you can then add another when it's a habit- eg uv done 1 month of exercise, now try having less sugar/soda- do it for a month. Keep doing this & ull manage to change your lifestyle.
