Solicit Positive Intervention; Explain Goals, Ask For Support
Members Were Sparked
Purpose is to share goals with people in your inner-circle & solicit written feedback from people who care about you. Primarily from family members & long-time friends, people who would be directly affected by my current or possible future health concerns due to weight would participate.
Hearing your children, siblings, & lifelong friends telling your their observations on how you derail your life is powerful. Focus on the positive life you'd miss without health & what others miss without you. NO abandonment -- only support & accountability. Ask for support & take responsibility.

Three things to consider when you find yourself slipping back. 1) Review the reasons you set your goals.. 2) Ask yourself, "Am I spending plenty of time with people who support my goals?" 3) Ask yourself, "Am I willing to love myself enough to achieve my goals 'this moment'?"
There is, after all, only 'this moment;, so don't worry about the rest of the moments!
Determine if my selection has a healthy nutritional valve or worth me eating. If I choose an unhealthy item - it must be small portions and eaten on a rare occasion.
In addition, I drink atleast 8 ounces of water and wait 15 minutes prior to consuming the item. This triggers a reaction the brain that will signal you are eating which allows one to consume less of the item. Thus satisfaction is reached prior to over consuming the item.
Ask myself, What impact will the item have on my goals? Is it worth me indulging in the item?
