  • Love this article. "perfectionism and the desire for instant gratification" was the phrase that really resonated with me! - 9/26/2016 1:40:53 PM

  • I had to print this one out and highlight the things that I need to read daily. This article is me, some parts are a deep down version of me, but it is all there.

    I know what works for me, I know what to eat, I know what works for me to exercise, but I need to get my mind in on the game.

    Thanks - 10/17/2015 3:36:37 PM
  • I really like some of the thoughts in this article, especially more steps in the right direction will get you where you are going -- rather than focusing on doing everything perfectly, giving up when you don't do it perfectly, or not achieving what you want in the artificial time frame I often set for myself. - 10/5/2015 6:12:25 PM
  • Wow, as usual Dean really gets it and understands what it is like to struggle with weight loss. His insights and advice, coming not only from knowledge of psychology but his own personal experience, are right on the mark. This article nails it. - 10/5/2015 2:27:00 AM
  • This is by far one of the best articles I've ever read regarding attitude/thoughts towards losing excess weight.

    Thank you for not sugar-coating the topic and putting it out here for discussion. I definitely have some of these characteristics and now that I see them for what they are, I can better address them.

    I only have to worry about the decision in front of me at this moment, not all the decisions for all day, all week, etc. Brilliant!

    Now, to work on that daily preparation problem I keep having :\ - 9/4/2015 12:34:15 PM
  • I am going to print this article and keep it in my journal! It seems to have been specifically written for me and in a tone and with a focus that resonates with me.

    Thank you! - 6/17/2015 9:55:44 AM
  • As usual, Dean's commentary hits the spot! Thank you! - 6/17/2015 8:24:34 AM

  • Perhaps we should read this at least weekly. - 7/28/2014 5:19:21 AM
  • I have recommended this site to a lot of people as it did work for me in the beginning, I lost 2 stone but, then I hit a brick wall and put it all back on. Reading this article has opened my eye's to a lot of things so, I am going to start up with sp again today with a more positive attitude. Ty sp - 7/28/2014 2:49:45 AM

    Thank you for that I needed to see this in black and white on print to motivate me .Thank you again - 6/26/2014 12:54:47 PM
  • This is an excellent article to a point: I despise the Polyanna-type-cheerleader attitude which you seem to be promoting - it seems more than fake. I believe that you CAN change a negative attitude into positive attitude without going over the top; fortunately, there is a lot of help here at SP to do just that. Thanks for a good-ish article, and for all your other good ones. - 11/14/2013 3:47:53 PM
