One Cupcake Too Many

Professional Speaker, Positive Attitude, Personal Development

Here I go again!  The Easter holiday just passed and I couldn’t keep myself from reaching for the jelly beans, cupcakes and chocolate bunnies.  Now they’re showing up on my hips, waistline and thighs.  UGH!!!  It was a lot of fun putting on the weight – not so much fun taking it off.

That’s why I came up with three new tricks to help me shed those extra pounds – AGAIN!!!  Maybe a few of them can help you as well:

First: I’m trying to look at this whole weight loss thing a little differently.  Instead of telling myself “no,” I simply do a review at the end of the day and see how I could improve.  What did I eat?  What could I have changed?  What would make tomorrow a better day?  For some reason, asking these questions makes me feel less deprived.  It’s a subtle shift in words and a shift in my attitude. I look at how I can be better instead of beating myself up over the choices I made.

Second: I wear my clothes that are a little tight on me.  It’s a gentle nudge telling me I need to lose some weight.  So as I reach for that dessert after dinner, and it feels like my button is going to pop off and fly across the room, it’s a reminder that maybe I can pass on that chocolate chip cookie this time.

Third: When I have a craving, and for me it’s usually chocolate, I do something to keep my hands busy.  Sometimes I call a friend or I do the laundry or anything that takes my mind off a snack.  It helps me to think about something other than food.

So what do you think?  Give some of these ideas a try.  And the next time you’re tempted to go on a Chocolate Bunny Binge, they just may help you recover from your cravings a little quicker. 

Do you have any other ideas to share?  I’d love to hear them.
