When you ELIMINATE something you REALLY LOVE from your nutrition, hey guess what, you’re more likely to fail.  What do I mean?  Think of it this way:

If you tell yourself, “OH MY GOD I LOVE CHOCOLATE CAKE SO MUCH, but I’m trying to lose weight so I can never have it again it’s so BAAAAAD for me and I’m swearing it off foreverrrrrrr!”  What are you more likely to do when you’re having a moment of weakness after not having your chocolate cake for six weeks….and there’s a slice right in front of you?  Yup, your’e going to devour it, and then feel guilty.  

So instead of eliminating something from your life, why not just moderate it?  Instead of saying “I’ll never have chocolate cake again,” tell yourself, “Chocolate cake is delicious and I choose to now use it as the treat that it is.  I will eat it happily at birthday celebrations.  I will enjoy a little on special occasions.  If I am truly CRAVING it, once in a while I will indulge.  I will realize that one serving size is enough, and I will feel satisfied!”  This helped me IMMENSELY!  Even now, after losing 80 lbs and being the fittest I’ve ever been, if someone sees me eating a huge piece of chocolate cake or ordering a pizza, or going out for some greasy food…they ask “oh my god, you EAT that stuff?  Ugh, it must be SO NICE to be able to eat whatever you want and not gain weight!”  

1) Yes, I do eat it.  Why?  Because I love it.

2) No, I can’t “eat whatever I want and not gain weight,” I pick and choose my times to indulge!  I don’t eat this stuff all the time, or even “once a week.”  I work my BUTT OFF, and I hold on to the 80/20 rule.  It’s that whole “work hard, play hard” thing…in relation to fitness :) 

Mindset, moderation, motivation.  It’s all you, and you got this! :)
