We must learn to say NO to all of our food pushers. It might be your mother, father, husband, wife, sister, brother, aunt, uncle, cousin, grandmother, grandfather, friend, neighbor, co-worker or boss.
7 thoughts about saying NO:
- The majority of people will honor a simple “no thank you”.
- You can save thousands of calories and dollars by saying NO.
- If someone truly loves you or cares about you, they will get over any short term disappointment very fast.
- There are personal and emotional costs when you give in.
- Practice saying NO to build confidence and a sense of control.
- Learn to say no to yourself when considering unnecessary food or spending.
- Say NO out loud to yourself when necessary and in private.
Practicing saying NO is equivalent to resistance training for weight lifters. The more you practice, the stronger you get. Keep in mind, it isn’t who you “no,” it is what you “no”.
