I spent some time with Dee this weekend! She looks great and is feeling confident and down 15lbs. She is keeping it off and doing it the right way. Here is one of her great posts on breaking habits. Happy Saturday!
Breaking a Habit
Remembering those triumphant times will help you know that you have the strength to do this too. My downfall has always been at night. I can normally spend all day eating well, including a decent dinner. After dishes, some laundry and household chores, I tend to sit down for television with my family for an hour or so before bed. Sixty minutes can undo 14 hours of hard work.
To substitute this bad habit with a good one, I’ve come up with some ideas to keep from snacking on junk food at night.
- Skip TV if it’s associated with food (plus commercials showing food make you want to eat)
- Pamper yourself and get to sleep earlier than normal for a well-rested night (sleep aids in weight loss plus you won’t be around temptations)
- Brew hot decaffeinated tea and read a good book
- Light a candle and listen to favorite music
