Congrats on your weight loss!

I am a stress/emotional eater. I do best when I don't allow unhealthy foods in the house. I also substitute an unhealthy food for a healthy one. Like for instance, I switched from milk chocolate to dark chocolate. I will have a few pretzels instead of chips. And carrots instead of cheetos. (Not really even close to the same but I do like carrots now!)

If possible, when you feel the urge to eat or grab a snack, take a walk first. Or lift some dumbbells, a 'walk away the pounds' video - just something to distract you or take your mind off of things.

Drinking water sometimes helps too.

Never let success go to your head, and never let failure go to your heart.

Make time, or make excuses. The choice is yours.

Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.
