feel good diet
When you need a little extra help to keep the motivation going
I have been on a diet since I was 14…I am now somewhere in my 40s.
That is a long time to be dieting; I should be stick-thin by now, enjoying other things in life instead of worrying about what to eat and what to wear, what event/holiday/job to avoid, and how much strain and stress all this constant dieting is doing to my body.
Dieting is not easy and we have to muster up determination and self-resilience; we have to fight with an array of invisible weapons that the majority of us do not know how to use! We end up giving in, surrendering to our negative thoughts and accepting failure. Again.
But I want out. I want to find a different way.
So I started to analyse everything good and bad about my experience with trying to lose weight…
At the beginning of every new diet I was always full of determination and belief with such a high level of willpower that I knew that was where I should start looking.
If you are struggling to stick to your diet – whatever it might be, then read my series on Weight Loss Motivation.
I wonder what it would be like to buy a bottle of ‘motivation’ from the grocery store, pour the contents into a glass and sip it like iced tea? Or better still, every time we need to motivate ourselves, we serve it like medicine, take a spoonful and feel the magic begin to work instantly. Perfect. A dream come true…and an end to failed dieting.
But they don’t sell motivation in a bottle.
We have pills and potions, shakes and meal replacements but no bottle of pure willpower.
