Here are some pithy little sayings that help us to remeber to behave in a healthier way. Rules are sometimes difficult to remember,
so Pithy Piths jog the brain at the moment you need them.
Lose the fat above the collar to lose the fat below. Can you plan your mend you? Don't be a fathead! Lose it up there. Words make a difference. Shed weight. Don't lose it. Don't worry about weight. Worry about worry. If you continue doing what you've done, then you will be what you've been. It is not what you put in your mouth that is the problem. It is what comes out of your mouth that is the problem. - Jesus Your visions are not constrained by time. What is your vision of a healthy you? The difference in weight from yesterday to today is that you cannot redo yesterday. Thought is fuel. Poor grade thought leads to poor grade thinking. When it comes to food, think IIWI, AIWI, and IAWI. Stinkin' thinkin' is the antithesis of right thinking. Choose one or the other. Beware of mind loops because the mind can only process one thought at a time. Who's at the wheel? The child or the adult? If you were driving on the wrong side of the road what would be the urgancy for change? Eat to live or live to eat. It looks good enough to be in you until it gets on you. The way you look at four is your parents' fault. The way you look at forty is yours. Fat is not fit. Fit is not fat. Actions trigger feelings and feelings trigger actions. How's your food shunning before, during, and after? What is your assessment? Mindless grazing is a form of hand to mouth disease. Desserts spells "stressed" when looking back. Eating habits are eating habits. Don't let the culprits loose. Keep your hands occupied or captive. It's not hoof in mouth disease but hand to mouth. If your head is in the plate it cannot be in the party. Party plate or party rapport. Eat like a cat, not like a dog. Small bites - small waists. Eat to satisfy today or for tomorrow - your choice. When plating, cut back and take it slow. You may find you need less to satisfy. Make islands not continents. At a buffet, scope before you scoop. At a buffet, put your back to it. At a buffet, "Thou shall not covet." At a buffet, we don't pray, "Give us this day all we can eat." Craving abating should be your next new hobby. You know when food talks to you, you don't have to listen. Think one chip is one pound. Shun-ning food - Is your eating ra-shun-al, emo-shun-al, or voli-shun-al?* Everybody needs a rubber room and it ain't the kitchen. Do you really deserve it? Desserts? Adopt the Boxing Glove Diet: Wear boxing gloves when feeling vulnerable. You can make the day special without incrimination about what you ate. Incrimination about what you ate can ruin a special day. Betwixt and between - what is the time between the betwixt? Waste food that's on your plate or waist food on your plate. Eating until you are full doesn't mean you cannot eat another bite. Food is fuel. Poor grade food leads to poor grade performance. Satiation duration is key to weight loss. When food is visible, If It Is Out then It Is In. IIIOIII At a party, don't put your drink down and don't pick up a chip. Visualize eating that tea spoon of fat when contemplating that juicy hamburger. Fruit loops are not considered fruit and potato chips are not considered vegetables. Dieting is an eating disorder. You have to eat to lose weight. Eat right, think right, and get a move on. Smaller plates, forks and spoons. When it comes to nutrients, packaging is a give away. Nature's or man's packaging can be a nutritional hint. That which you eat in private shows up in public. Color is a give away. Fried foods have one color. Color is a give away. Salads and the like have more color. If the sun is up, then eat. Sip water when it's dark. Find your rhythm and keep the beat. There is no bad food, only bad planning. - Rosie Chiavernini One no in the store is worth one hundred no's at home. - Michelle Jacobs Out of sight is out of mind.
