The NAWLS Small Bite for June 18th
Avoid temptation.If a cookie is sitting on your counter at home, you are more likely to eat it than if the cookie is in your pantry (or in the store). Despite the simplicity of this idea, many WLS patients keep tempting foods in plain sight and try to convince themselves they won't eat it--but then they do.
If you really want to have some success at losing or maintaining, then remove temptation from your life as much as possible. You don't have absolute control of your environment, but you are not helpless, either.
Action for the day:
Look through your home and office today. What temptations can you get rid of? With whom should you set limits so that you are not constantly bombarded with tempting foods?
