any of you super dieters in here ever reached the point where you start playing mind games with yourself to prevent your self from cheating? i noticed myself doing it. it seems to help.

Yah. Nightime is the toughest for me. I usually wake up 3 times a night just to go to the bathroom and of course while dieting, I'm hungry too. My brain keeps telling me "a little ice cream won't hurt, come on".

What I did was wrote out a sheet stating that I will stick too my planned ratios for the day and signed it. I posted it up on my fridge and haven't cheated at all. Silly I know, but it's working!

weekends where the hardest times for me. Especially when my friggin neighbour was having damn BBQ's every weekend. Sat and Sun. I just used to think of my next cheat day.

Well, all I do when pizza stares at me is I say
"Taste is fleeting but health is not"

How long do you actually taste that pizza? Its not worth it. Its hard to get past it but it all boils down to this:
Will you be better off eating that pizza for 25 seconds of joy or the next ten years in good health?

I know that one piece of pizza wont kill you, but a piece of pizza a day will definitely stymie your progress.

at least you guys get a cheat day. i only get a cheat meal:mad: i find that the better i look the harder it is to stay clean. i start thinking that "oh its okay to cheat, it won't hurt you deserve it".

Mind games ? No, but i put a photo of Dennis James in the back of my bedroom door, and everytime i want to cheat i go and see it and makes me remember the hard training and cardio sessions.

Keep pumping !
