Day 66 - Don't Even Start
Sunday, November 02, 2014
When you feel yourself battling against taking a taste of something that you know is a trigger food, be sure you have a good phrase to keep in your head that will automatically make you stop and think. Repeat this phrase over and over again until you know you will stop yourself from digging into that food that you momentarily think you want.
Another trick is to say that phrase with an authoritative voice, like a parent -- or in my case, the sound of a cat this is about to attack you if you give in.
Another good idea is to come up with your own phrases or mantras that will pop into your head at your time of need.
This is always good. And then there is one that is a joke around our house..
