“You will feel so accomplished by the end of the day, just looking back at that one day and saying, ‘Wow, I did it! I was able to just stick with that one day stick with the schedule.’ And that's going to give you momentum into the next day.” Rachel Gregory
“You don't always have to replace everything with food or with something that's going to make you feel like you're settling, right? Because if you're eating for comfort or boredom, not because you're hungry, you don't need to replace that food with a healthier food, because you don't actually need the food.” Ashleigh VanHouten
