The next time you are faced with indulgences at family events (especially multiple back-to-back, holiday-based events) remember how you felt last night at 10pm, or 12am or 1.30, 2.45, 4, or 7. Remember how all that greasy food wrecked your system that is so used to being nourished with healthy foods in moderate, reasonable portions. Remember how excited everyone was for your continued success and the way their eyes opened up when your reply to "how much have you lost so far?" was "99 pounds." Remember how ridiculous you thought you sounded as you rationalized to your relatives that you normally wouldn't eat like this, but this is a special occasion. Remember that you already give yourself a high-calorie day. A. One. Not three. Remember how close you were to 100 lost before you shot yourself in the foot and that you have no one to blame but yourself if you don't make it at next weigh-in. Remember why you're doing this. Remember how much all those rich foods just aren't worth it.
