Be mindful as you pursue your 'desired body shape' , to be monitor your inner critic.

  • "You ate that sugar cookie/fudge/chips, and drank two beers.  You have no control.  You have no self-control.  Why did you eat all that!"
  • "I yelled at the kids again…why can’t I handle the stress of my family better"
  • "I can’t work out today…I have too many things to do for everybody else"

You have to silence these unhelpful thoughts.  The process that work for others, may not work for you. You need to evaluate your strengths and challenges and try to make changes based on that honest evaluation.

Try yoga, meditation, Pilates or simple close your eyes and breathe deeply in through your nose, hold for a few seconds, and out through your mouth.  I have taught this to my little kids and it’s AMAZING how effective it is in calming them down.  The practice of extended breathing, or  just gently rolling your neck and breathin g for a moment, can give you a calmer outlook on whatever issue you are dealing with.

When you 'hear' the negative speak, say STOP in your head.  Dismiss it.  Breathe.  Recognize that you of all people should be nice to you.  If you falter with a food treat, move on.  Recover,  and start better in the next moment.  Life is nothing more than a series of moments and choices.  Choose differently.  Show yourself the same kindness you show others.
