Don't Miss About Overeating
When dieting, some people think about all the things they missed
eating. Rarely do they think about things that they 'don't miss'
about overeating like:
*That terrible 'overstuffed' feeling. It feels like you ate lead
and it sticks with you for HOURS and sometimes days if you've had
*That feeling of always searching for, "what can I eat now".
Remember how that was? You'd finish one thing and start thinking
about what else you could eat - like a machine. Isn't it good to
know that you have control over what you eat now? You don't wake

*The feeling of failure.
*The feeling of guilt because you 'know' that you shouldn't eat
something that's actually harming your body. Sure, we can treat

*Fat clothes with no waistlines or belts.
*Other people watching what you eat and commenting on it.
*That desire to be thin again and feeling like you'll never be
that again. Now you KNOW, that it's going to be yours again. You
are going to be fit again! Remember, you are already there in your
*And that feeling of, "Just how big am I going to end up?"
Relax and take a bubble bath tonight and try to stay away from the
kitchen goodies. Don't let the diet plateau disarm your progress
