Time for me to lighten up. Sometimes I talk to myself in a way that defeats my diet attempts. [Laughter is important.] I will recover form this kind of irrational reasoning. *You just need a nap, not a diet. You won't be eating, and you'll get rid of some of the stress that makes you eat. *Extra weight is good for extra traction in winter driving conditions. *Your cat and dog don't care if you're fat or thin. *You can count carrot cake as a vegetable. *If you invite ten people who are all heftier than you over for a party, they'll tell you how thin you are. *You're eating for two (you and your inner child).
Tonight is another eating out birthday dinner. Thank goodness it is with my diet buddies. I guess I'll be having a dinner salad, water, and no dessert. I should be a good example for them and maybe I can "train my will," and it will lead to a road of making the right choices at all restaurants from now on. We'll see how much guts I have, or will I follow the crowd? The only way to strengthen a muscle is to give it resistant training. Having control comes from the muscle in my head. Okay, how about now controlling your tongue?
