I find I'm becoming less of a brat when it comes to things I won't allow myself to have much of. I think. Like beef and pork -- and now cappuccino. I haven't really lost this week, and I think it's due in large part to the cappuccinos I've been drinking from BP. Just a theory.
So, I had to forgo my usual morning treat today. I miss it, but I'm not wringing my hands about it. I know it's something I could have, but I'm making the decision to keep it at a distance because it seems to be sabotaging my efforts. I'm more focused on the long-term effects that it will have on the plan, than I am on the momentary pleasure of having it.
Could this be the kind of breakthrough my online weight loss coach Renee Stephens preaches about? Some variation of it? Rather than focus on what I can't have, I'm focusing on the benefit of increased weight loss effectiveness.
Breakthrough was my intention, and on many levels, it's what I'm getting.
