Congratulations! One way not to sabotage yourself is not focusing too much on all the things you say "no" to, but all the good things you can say "yes" to. I have found that that works for me and this is the first time I ever stick to a diet, because instead of telling myself "I can't eat waffles with PB and maple syrup" I'm telling myself "I can eat a deliciously sweetened omelet!" And so it goes. When I crave chocolate too much, I buy Atkins M&Ms and nibble on half an ounce through the day. It's not about what you cannot eat, it's about all the healthy foods that will get you to where you want to be.

Good luck! You can do it!
