The Chocolate Battle
You’ve made a commitment to yourself to stay on target. You’ve signed a contract with your favorite support group and dedicated yourself to a restrictive routine for three weeks and have not fallen from grace. You’re determined and believe that you are capable of achieving your goal. You remind yourself of how terrific your doing and how proud you are for taking off nine pounds of fat in just three weeks.
Comfortable with the tests of will power that present themselves daily, you prepare for an evening of food and entertainment. You run over in your mind how proud you are of yourself and how simple this new way of living has been thus far. You praise yourself for drinking eight or more glasses of water and logging every morsel that has passed by your lips. You complement yourself for developing new eating habits and weighing in with your favorite support group on a regular basis. You’re feeling confident in yourself and your commitment.
