The other day I gave you some tips to get you through the challenging day of Halloween. These few tips will help you get the right attitude to follow through on them:
- Realize that you really do have discipline, willpower and self-control. I know you have accomplished things in life that have required these qualities, right? Well, losing weight is not that different, you just have to channel your focus towards it. Remember it’s really about attitude and your committed decision that controls discipline and willpower. You don’t allow people to control you, so don’t allow food to control you either! Don’t give permission to let if affect how you feel. You have the power!
- Be grateful your life is not about your weight. Put things in perspective. You have all the basics in life if not a few luxuries, something that billions of others cannot say. You have the power of choice which is something that you should cherish every waking moment. Once you are thankful for the things you do have in life, not having that ideal weight today won't matter as much. You may not be exactly where you want to be, but note there are others that aren’t even close to where you are.

Happy Halloween! Focus on the holiday fun rather than the so-called treats. (It's not a treat if you feel bad for eating too much of it.)
