How good have you gotten in talking your way out of it?
When you meant to skip your usual afternoon snack in accordance with your renewed desire to lose weight, did you find a way to justify eating that snack anyway? “I really needed a pick-me-up,” you might have told yourself.
At the holiday gathering, you ate like there was no tomorrow. And there was no tomorrow as far as sticking to a diet was concerned. What did you say to yourself then? How did you talk your way out of that? Bet you found a way.
Getting good at talking your way out of spoiling your weight loss effort is certainly an unwanted benefit of trying to lose some weight. Don’t you think?
