This was on a Weight Watchers message board. I've seen it other places, too, likely here on Spaerkpeople! I like it so I'm posting it!
"If you're "interested" in losing weight...
--You stick with it only until something better comes along (such as doughnuts)
--How you feel determines your outcome. If you don't 'feel like it,' you stop your efforts.
--You need to see results. When the scale doesn't move, you lose your motivation.
--You blame everything else (people, travel, circumstances) for your struggles with staying on your diet.
--Whenever you face challenges in life, you give up and plan you'll start your diet again tomorrow.
If you're "committed" to losing weight...
--Nothing stops your efforts. You stick with your diet, "no matter what."
--Emotions don't control your actions. You stay on track even when you don't feel like it.
--Your motivation isn't linked to the scale. You assume that if you stay motivated and work hard, you'll eventually see results.
--You don't depend on other people for your success. You know it's up to you, not them.
--A bad day or a lot of challenges don't affect your efforts. You keep going in spite of it."
Hmmmm, appears I've been more interested than committed for a while. Time to walk down the aisle of weight loss and stop sitting and chatting with the guests!
