If you always stop for a donut on your way to work, try a different route. Keep fatty foods, cigarettes, alcohol and other tempting items out of your home.
Replace unhealthy behaviors with healthy behaviors
Exercise, practice a favorite hobby or spend time with family.
If you can’t avoid tempting situations, prepare in advance. Plan how to handle temptations and mentally practice what you plan.
Ask friends, family and co-workers to support your efforts to change.
Reward yourself for small steps
Give yourself a healthy treat when you’ve reached a small goal or milestone.
