Week 63 Building the HABIT of I Don’t Eat That!

First, set a written Health and wellness GOAL. On a 1-10 where 1 is not at all important and 10 is extremely important, make this goal a priority and make it a 10. These type goals should be in alignment with the future “YOU” that you are striving to be!  The “YOU” that you Dream of being.

Making this DREAM come true, all starts with setting and having a high priority GOAL. Each day we take ACTIONS that influence whether we move toward this GOAL or away from this GOAL.

Behaviors that help us reach our goals TREND us BETTER.  Behaviors that interfere with us obtaining our goals TREND us WORSE!  These are our ACTIONS.  These ACTIONS or WHAT WE DO along this journey determine our SUCCESS in reaching these GOALS.

Day to day ACTIONS become our HABITS. What we DO consistently on a daily basis determines or shapes our HABITS. Bad HABITS (habits that do not serve us) and Good HABITS (habits that serve us) are both built the exact same way … it is simply what we consistently DO.

Use this STATEMENT, a daily affirmation as a GOOD HABIT BUILDER.

When confronted with food items that do not serve you … state out loud … I DON’T EAT THAT!

When you think about food items that do not serve you … state out loud … I DON’T EAT THAT!

If you are offered a food items that do not serve you and you feel yourself hesitate … RIGHT AWAY BEFORE YOU FALTER state out loud … I DON’T EAT THAT!

This is a mental muscle and the more you flex it the more powerful it will get! You will strengthen the HABIT of Staying the course!

Thanks for these GREAT words, Jimmie! And, thanks for the “I Don’t Eat That” magnet! I have it right on my refrigerator. This weight loss journey has developed a habit in me. I really Don’t Eat That these days. I KNOW what it does to my body! I have lost weight and I’m enjoying my new body. I’m not where I want to be, but I’m getting there with good choices! Thanks for being there for me!
