Here’s an important survival tip when embarking on a self-bettering journey….

PREPARE FOR THE “PUSHERS” (sometimes known as the HATERS)!

There will always be people who try to persuade you to go off your diet “just this once”.  Most of the time, it’s those you see often.  I’m sure you’ve heard it before, “Oh come on, just a little bite; it won’t hurt your diet”, or “Just one little sip, there’s hardly any calories in that!”.  And “just this once” becomes time and time again.  Where do you draw the line??


You either need to distance yourself from these people or have a serious talk with them about your fitness goals & efforts.  YOU NEED TO PUT YOUR FOOT DOWN!  Think about it…why do people want you to see you fail?  They are either jealous of your will power and ambition, disrespectful of your seriousness and efforts and/or unhappy in their own situation.

Peer pressure doesn’t end when you get older, unfortunately; it’s part of life and is ever-present among friends and family….especially those who correlate happiness with food (most of us).  One solution can be to plan non-food activities with loved ones (bowling, the movies, walks) and work hard to resist temptation when you’re in an environment where food is part of the festivities.  It’s ONLY 12 weeks!  Well, almost 10 now.

……and keep this thought in mind….MISERY LOVES COMPANY (and nobody wants to be miserable!).


HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND and see you all on the bridge tomorrow!
