Day 18 of the fatloser.com
video series deals with making the distinction between cause and effect.
This is an important tool in weight loss and maintenance. If I keep trying to fix only the effect, nothing will permanently change. (It's like having a leaking roof and just replacing the floor each time it rains.) I must attack the cause to fix the problem.
What you believe is the cause. Your behavior is the effect.
Change your belief, and you will change your action.
Fight the old beliefs you had by repeating and acting on the new ones.
Siebold recommends getting involved with (his blog's) community. The Sparkpeople community has been a tremendous help to me. It keeps me aware of challenges, pitfalls, successes, topics which require thought, and so much more. Many of the people here have become my friends, and we help each other over rough spots.
Thanks for that! You've helped me change what I believe about losing weight and keeping it off. You've helped me reach my goal and maintain for 10 months today. You've even allowed me to see if I've helped you. This community is tremendous, and I'm sticking around!
