Break the vicious cycle. Overeating for emotional reasons is the worst of all cycles. I overeat because I'm upset, I gain weight because I overeat and then I get upset because I've gained weight. Will it ever end?

Do not be discouraged when you go off of your diet and have a binge. this occasionally happens to most dieters.

When suffering with eating disorder tendencies getting professional help for direction and support is all well and good but the first step to recovery is to take responsibility for your own actions. No one else can do it for you.

Be satisfiied with a small victory and recognize that you are progressing with each little building block for long-term success.

Motivation and perception are two factors that are particularly pertinent to the shaping of food habits. Motivation stems from a primary biological drive, your needs and your goals. Perception is the process of adding meaning to what is taken in through the senses.

When an irresistible urge strikes try to resist momentairly. Most cravings willl pass in 10 minutes. Divert your attention to some activity. You can telephone a friend, click on the computer, balance your checkbook, take a walk outside, meditate, clean out your purse, read the sports page in the newspaper, turn up some good dance music and burn off a calorie or two, or give a hug and kiss to someone and tell them how much you love them. Time in life is never enough.

Help minimize your silhouette, use a thin or small purse; never add bulk where you are already bulky.

You can save 180 calories and 20 fat grams a day if you eat a sandwich with two tablespoons of mustard instead of mayonnaise.

Nutrition wise you can replace fruit servings with vegetables but do not replace vegetable servings with fruits.

Eating fat reduces the effectiveness of the immune system.

A contributing factor to peptic ulcers is often; worry, usually those things aren't as bad as the illness it can create.

I'm outta here, going to San Diego this weekend. I can't imagine missing the big football game tomorrow. Aloha.
