Don't Forget!



Don't forget about your goals. It feels like you hit the finish line, and maybe you have...but what habits do you want to carry forward with you?


How are you feeling in your body now?

How did your body feel before the Psychology of Lasting Weight Loss?


If you felt deprived of certain foods, Remember, Deprivation is a feeling we create based on our own desire. The more we desire something, the more we feel deprived when we think about not having it.

If you still want a certain food, plan your "joy eat" 24 hrs in advance and use your joy eat journal I gave you yesterday to write down in intense detail what each bite tastes like, feels like, smells like, emotions that come up, emotions you felt leading up to this moment. This is an incredibly powerful tool and generally ruins that joy food for you. IF FOOD IS YOUR MAIN SOURCE OF JOY, YOUR LIFE IS BORING!

When you feel an intense need to eat when you are not hungry, ask yourself what emotions are underlying this urge? What thoughts have I been thinking today? This will help you soothe your true desire instead of distracting yourself with food. Before you know it- it will happen naturally and food won't be your go-to for emotional exhaustion.


Big love and hugs
