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.

    use it as a reward instead! that way you get to enjoy it every once in a while and understand that it is meant to be a treat :) emoticon

    Good job! I know it's hard to stop so many things you like but You're doing the right thing but gradually dropping things. This may not be the reason but at least you'll know that and can move on from there or if it is the reason then you can eliminate the bad from your diet until you are ready to maintain. :-)

    Maybe this is the breakthrough moment, all the best.
