This is an excellent article which also could be applied to other human efforts that require long term commitment for success, like staying on a budget and avoiding debt, keeping things organized and clean, completing a degree, etc. All require long term maturity and a certain amount of wisdom as opposed to crazy all or nothing or victim thinking. The attitude tune-up is much more important than knowing the simple "facts" of how food and exercise function; those are comparatively easy once the issues in this article are addressed. Report
Love this article. "perfectionism and the desire for instant gratification" was the phrase that really resonated with me! Report
Excellent article, much appreciated! Report
There is some really great information in this article; thank you for sharing!!! Report
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 Report
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.

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. Report
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 :\ Report
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! Report
As usual, Dean's commentary hits the spot! Thank you! Report
Thanks for article. Needed to read that😊 Very helpful and motivating. Report
Perhaps we should read this at least weekly. Report
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 Report
Thank you for that I needed to see this in black and white on print to motivate me .Thank you again Report
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. Report
