Sue did a great job of reading her list of reasons to lose weight twice a day, every day this week. Doing so really prepared her for the tempting French fries on a communal serving plate at lunch with her coworkers. When everyone but her temporarily left the table, Sue said to herself, “I want to have thinner legs!” and she covered the fries with a napkin, so she wouldn’t have to look at them. Had she not been reading the advantages of losing weight regularly, she may not have been motivated to forego the fries.
