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.
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.
