Day 11 – Create the Right Environment

love-in-cherries-400You’re familiar with creating a certain mood if you want a romantic evening.  Maybe you wear a pretty dress, dine at a fine restaurant, go dancing and then come home to a candlelit room.  Creating the right atmosphere is important in romance and guess what?  It’s important in losing weight too!

If you walk in your home famished and there are cookies, chips and soda in your pantry, you’re going to help yourself.  There go your good intentions for the day!  You can’t lean on your willpower.  Instead you’ve got to create an environment in which you can succeed.  For many of us that means clearing out the pantry of sugary items and emtpy calories. 

I was at Trader Joe’s today and I really wanted to get some chocolate.  But I know if I have chocolate covered peppermints in the house, I’ll binge one afternoon and be sorry later.  So I win the battle at the store and I don’t put them in the cart.  Then when I get home, it’s a safe environment for me to eat. 

How is your home environment?  What changes need to be made in your pantry and refrigerator?

Try it risk free and experience the breakthrough month you’ve been longing for.  It just takes five minutes a day!
