When I get the urge to grab something to snack on, I remember a saying I learned through Positive Changes: "Appetite (craving) is of the mind; hunger is of the body." In other words, if my stomach isn't growling or empty, then my urges stem for a mental or emotional desire. That has been very helpful for me.
Positive Changes is an "hypnosis" program. I participated in the Beaverton, Oregon center.
I sit down every Sunday alone and I re-comment to my weight loss goals and challenges. I find new races to enter, I look at my routines via my exercise journal and analyze if I need to increase what I am doing because I am bored or I just need to increase because my body has adjusted.
This helps me because I stay fresh, centered and motivated to do new things and have new goals accomplished week after week.
My son is 14 years old and the dynamic here between him and his step-father have recently taken a turn for the worst. There isn't a lot I can do as a mother or wife to make it right between them but to stay positive. I try to stay positive by working out, talking things out and just being here for others.
You can have a huge impact on others by just staying positive,
