You’re working hard and have worked hard to lose weight, change your lifestyle and make healthier choices. Time goes by and you hit a plateau or are faced with temptation- Don’t be sucked into the devilish thoughts of returning to your old ways or thinking “this one time won’t make a difference”. Awareness is key when combating negative thoughts or temptations. Pay attention to negative tapes that may be playing in your head, your environment and the people that surround you. Your personal goals may not align with what your friends or family are want for/from you in that specific moment. Remember to put yourself and your goals before the wants of others.
