Ever had a moment where you just couldn’t resist munching on the last few cookies or popcorn just because it was there?

My friend recently shared a funny story with me about how she decided to finish off a whole box of cookies in one go, just to get them out of her house.

It made perfect sense to her at the time however she didn’t feel so good about it afterwards.

Sound familiar?

We’ve all been there, right?

And truth be told, I have done something like this myself.

You tell yourself you’ll start fresh tomorrow, so why not (over)indulge today?

Spoiler alert: This thinking isn’t helpful AND you have the power to stop at any moment.

Think about it like this: every moment is a chance to make a better choice.

You can pause, take a breath, become aware and switch gears anytime you want.

Try telling yourself these things next time you’re tempted to mindlessly overeat, in the name of “finishing it off”:

→ “I’m in control here. I choose not to eat any more just because it’s here.”

→ “I have had enough to eat and it’s okay to stop.”

→ “Just for today, I’m choosing to say no to overeating.”

And you can take the next best action like:

→ Move – take a walk, dance, even vacuum.

→ Call a friend.

→ Write down how you are feeling.

So next time you’re faced with the temptation to “finish something off” remember, you’re in charge of your choices.

You can say goodbye to mindlessly overeating and start feeling great about learning to tune into your own hunger cues – and lose some weight!

And if you want accountability, support and cheerleading, then we need to talk.
