What are you entitled to?

Usually, when someone is having a bad day, they turn to food to comfort them. They say things like, “I deserve to have dessert tonight because I had a rough day” or “Work was stressful, I deserve to take a night off from the gym.” What do you feel you’re entitled to that might be standing in the way of your weight loss goals?

If more people were to really think about the decisions they make on a day-to-day basis they would likely be more successful at reaching their goals. Rather than making impulse decisions because they think they’re entitled to something, they would realize that they’re actually sabotaging their success.

Try reversing your thinking by telling yourself that you deserve to eat healthier or work out more because you know that the outcome possibly means a longer life span with a better quality of life. I guarantee you won’t regret those decisions later.
