Dear Diet! the new Dear John letter.
If you’ve ever felt discouraged when attempting to lose weight or make healthy changes to your diet, you can change this forever.
Never again do you have to dread losing motivation.
Going on a diet is hard for so many of us, not because the science of the diet is ineffective , but because something in us – makes us falter from following through. It’s the emotional component.
What is it that stops us?
Saturday night comes around –everyone is sooo happy with the wings and beer, that special dinner at the Seafood Buffet or the family cookout— and it just does not seem worth missing out.
If you say any of these things you may be experiencing an emotional block to your success:
- I am bored.
- I miss having my favorite foods.
- It’s taking too long.
- I feel kind of blue and just want the CHOCOLATE!
- t’s that time of the month! Who can stay on a diet?
- I was doing so well and now this plateau is bumming me out!
- C’mon – I am always going to be this weight, no matter what I do it just does not work!
- I am too busy to get to the nutritionist, I just eat what the kids are having.
- People at work or at home tease me too much. I hate being the oddball.
- I guess I just need the fat for protection.
- My whole family is fat, it’s genetic.
- I am not disciplined. It won’t work for me.
Weight loss is an inside job. We get tripped up when our emotions cause us to emotionally eat, or get off track. We fall off the wagon when the rest of our lives make demands on our time and resources. Staying on track just does not seem that important when we have a troublesome teenager, a crying infant, an aging parent or a demanding job.
What’s the answer?
Stop the negative self talk!
…okay, but really, “toughing it out” “pumping it up” when we are feeling emotional just does not seem to work. Ben and Jerry and Nora Ephron movies are still a lonely Saturday night’s best companions for so many! Tell a woman with a pint of Phish food that she should just “think positively” your most likely response will be: “I am one with the chocolate, I can eat anything I want and still lose weight”
