I agree with the other posts here. When you do those 'fast results', too good to be true diets and flushes...you are only fooling yourself. You need to stay slow and take one step at a time. You will soon realize that you have changed your habits this way.

If we saw all the difference even the tiniest of our prayers make, and all the people those...prayers were destined to affect...we would be so paralyzed with awe...that we would be unable to get up off our knees for the rest of our lives.

QUick fixes rarely work for more than a short time. One thing that slow and steady does is it allows you time to develop new habits that you will use for the rest of your life.

You have hit the nail on the head.
The Navy tells their pilots, "Keep it low and slow" for a reason. It is impossible to land on a carrier if you are too high and/or too fast. Keep on this track.

I'm new to this. I mean, I'm new to SparkPeople, but also to the "slow and steady" thought. I have always have issues with my weight, with my whole self image actually. I have usually gone to diet pills, or 7 day flushes, or special diet plans.

If the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result then I guess I have been insane (I know some would agree with that!!). It doesn't work, obviously, so, let's try something new. Every week I will add a little more, remove a food, add another, add another exercise or increase the time of an existing one.

Right now I'm guessing that's how "slow and steady" works, but, of course, I am very open to stories of what worked for you or suggestions on how to go about this new life that I am on.
