Monday Motivation: One of our dieters recently said to us, “For the first time in 40 years I ate a dessert in front of my husband and didn’t feel self-conscious!” Even though she still has more weight she wants to lose, because she’s learned how to be on track and knows what she’s doing is working, she feels good about what she eats and is able to eat even dessert without a shred of guilt or self-consciousness.
