I've learned to count on only myself when it comes to staying accountable. I used to tell my friends/family "whatever happens, don't let me eat this or that!" and it never works. It works best if I tell myself.. "no matter what happens, don't eat...."
It's better to convince yourslef than someone else. It's better to give YOURSELF the control :)
The best way to lose weight is to be kind to yourself. This means treating yourself well: eating healthy foods, exercising that wonderful body you are housed in, and taking care of yourself emotionally, spiritually and financially. It also means you should not berate yourself or beat yourself up when things aren't "perfect." Be as kind to yourself as you would be to your best friend and your own children.
