Acknowledge that you no longer need that behavior.
2. Next, reduce your goal to one or two positive statements that feel right such as “I am now achieving my
ideal healthy weight.” These can be modified as you make progress towards your goal.
3. Chose a quiet comfortable place, such as a recliner, turn off the phone and all possible interruptions.
