Say It: "I Choose Life"
My husband came up with this idea. Everytime I feel like reaching for food that isn't healthy or don't feel like working out, I have two choices: early death or LIFE! His idea: Simply say outloud (or in your head if others are around): "I CHOOSE LIFE!!" When you look at it that way...
