I had a good session yesterday. One thing the counselor said that really stuck with me is to ask yourself before you eat something, "what is the pay off?" Let's say you are craving a big,cheesy,pizza (like me). If you eat it, the "joy" will only last as long as you are actually eating it- maybe 15-20 minutes, and then what is the pay off? What did you do for yourself? After enjoying that pizza (or whatever it is you are craving that you should not have) you are stuck with the consequences but you when you stay on THE LAWL Plan, what is the pay off? We feel better, we look better, and we are getting healthy! That means so much more than smaller sizes, it means feeling better and having energy and not getting sick! That is a lot bigger pay off than 15 minutes of something tasting good! (I lost 2 more pounds this week! Since June 14th, I have lost 18 lbs!) That is the pay off! Good luck everybody! WE CAN DO THIS!

Wow, good for you. I like that counsellor. My counsellor told me something similar, & she also said, that to remember it's only food, it will still be there tomorrow, so don't pig out on it today.There are more important things that stuffing food into our mouths. It's hard not to be obssessed about it, cause we love to eat, but we need to learn to eat to live, not to live to eat.

Keep up the good workSmile

True, very true. I have let eating (esp. eating out) become an entertainment! That is not what food is supposed to be! There is so much more to life than eating! I am making changes, slowly but surely, but the mind has to change too! I miss my old foods still but as I continue to lose weight, I am missing them less and less. I wish you SUCCESS!

Don't spend the money - do it youself if you can get ahold of the diet plan.
