Every diet goes through stages. My experience has been in these stages:
1) Ugh! I really need to do something.
2) This isn't so bad.
3) Nice, results!
4) I'm bored.
5) What happened to the results?
6) It's not worth it anymore.
7) Back to calories
Lately, I've been feeling like I'm working my way through stages 4 and 5. This is just like every other diet, I start off excited, get a little results, then lose interest. But this is not like any other diet. Because it is not a diet. This is not a diet. THIS IS NOT A DIET!
I will not quit, because this is my life. These changes are permanent. I am worth the healthy choices. I am worth the hard work. I will not let boredom sabotage my life. It's not a diet anymore, this time I'm not playing, and this time I'm not quitting.
Hear that, you negative thoughts? I'm going to push through this one. I'm going to keep going.
