Why Do We Cheat On Our Diets?Written by Kim Beardsmore
If only we could solve this question, world (for many) would be a better place! Well, reality is that there are real answers to this question that will apply to many people. It will take a good dose of reality and a brave heart to stop denying what really happens. Read on to discover some answers that may change your life forever and give you impetus to lose weight and keep it off!
Being overweight can be used as an excuse for being unhappy, especially when you do not do anything to help yourself. Subconsciously, over-eating is a comfort for many people and this then allows them to hide behind their weight problem and helps them to justify rejection and avoid being hurt. They can then shift blame of rejection on their weight-problem, without addressing other aspects of their fears. Sometimes it seems easier to hide behind your “weight problem”, than address other matters where you may have a greater fear of failure.
Eating Without Thinking?
If you are concentrating on another activity while you are eating you are more likely to overeat because you are not fully aware of how full you are feeling. This factor can be difficult to change because it is not a conscious action. Try to only eat when you don’t have a lot of other distractions. Sit down, eat slowly and enjoy food you are eating, and remember that it is not always necessary to go back for seconds. It takes 20 minutes for food to reach your stomach and for your brain to register that you are full.
Daily Motivation for Successful Weight LossWritten by Isabelle Berard
Why do you want to lose weight? Is it to have less fat on your body? Or is it because of well being you think you will feel without your extra pounds? Do you think that you will acquire more vitality, be more seducing, which will boost your confidence and self-esteem? Almost everything that we do aim to modify way we feel. We really determine our future moment we take a firm decision. For me, everything changed day that I've decided that I was engaging myself to become and obtain what I would like in life. Think about it. There is a difference between being interested in something and engage yourself towards it. Often, people say: "Oh! I would like to lose some weight." But these kinds of declarations are not an engagement. We are simply enouncing one of our preferences such as: "It interests me, as long as I don't have to lift a finger." This is not power. Unfortunately, people don't take action, because they are to occupied to invent themselves some excuses. If they didn't reach their goal or if they don't live their dream life, they put forward way they were raise, absence of choice when they were young, lack of instruction or fact that they are to old. All these excuses are insignificant. They are not only restrictive, but also destructive. If you don't fix yourself some basic rules that you are ready to accept in your life, you'll see that it is very easy to slip into unhealthy behavior or attitude. If you take firm decision to lose weight, you can do it. Your life will change moment you take a firm decision. Will you finally decide today that you are more than what you've shown so far? Is it today that you will decide once and for all to harmonize your life saying: "This is who I am. Here is my life and here is what I do. Nothing will prevent me to accomplish my destiny. I won't accept that we deny what I am." To take a real decision, is to engage yourself to obtain a precise result and to refuse any other possibility. Understand that what is most difficult, when we want to accomplish something, is to take a firm engagement, a real decision.
