Here’s a thought to maybe help you resist that piece of cake or that Mars bar:
Think about your future self!
Right now you want gratification, you want to satisfy that craving. Or you forget that you are eating healthily and, out of habit, you reach for that chocolate bar.
But how will your future self view your consumption of that gooey chocolate bar?
Will your five-minute-from-now self feel guilty that you ate it?
Will your one-week-from-now self regret the message on the scales?
Will your one-year-from-now self fear what the doctor revels about the cholesterol and blood glucose tests?
For your future self, say no to the sugar and bad fat!
This thinking has helped me resist the left-over chocolates from Halloween. Happy to report I haven’t eaten one of these.
Unhappy to report that my sons have left the empty packet in the pantry for the house elves to drop in the bin.
