- FEEL THE PAIN: If you're prone to eating when you're upset or angry, remember that food is not the answer. Instead of reaching for food is not the answer. Instead of reaching for food, let yourself experience the emotions, knowing that they won't last forever.
- ACCEPT WHERE YOU ARE NOW: When you feel discouraged by the rate - or lack - of progress you're experiencing, try to accept and appreciate yourself at your current weight. This can help you to hang in there until you begin losing again.
- SAVOR THE FLAVOR: When you do indulge in a reic dessert or another high-calorie treat, eat it slowly and really enjoy the flavor; changes are, you'll feel satisfied after just a few bites and will be able to put down your fork or spoon.
