Change Your Thoughts to Win the Weight-Loss Game


  • Great article. Definitely one I am going to reread. - 10/16/2012 3:13:49 PM
  • Great article.
    I have always said, the right attitude is a positive one. That is why I was able to go from 335 to 145 in less than two years. And choice, the choice is always yours. NO one makes us eat any food . We have the choice. It's all in your mind. What do you want more to be healthy and weigh less or have a moment of pleasure by eating some food.? A taste that doesn't last only creates more fat for you to cope with.
    Say good by to the word can't. Say hello to I CAN. And set out to do it. It's all with in your capabilities. But you and only you control your destiny.
    Be strong, stay positive.

    Finally an article that doesn't pander and baby people. This is a great motivational article and pointed out to me exactly why I've failed in the past and why I will continue to succeed now. Thank you! - 10/16/2012 11:19:06 AM
  • I used to have that all or nothing fattitude! I was ALWAYS starting on if i messed up Monday...I ate bad until the next Monday. I am grateful that I no longer can be described has having a fattitude. The scale isn't doing much but I've been on this journey for 2 months consistantly and I'm not turning back. In fact, I see more of who I am in the Winning Attitudes :-) and I'm very thankful for Sparkpeople and the countless supporters I have!! - 10/16/2012 10:37:34 AM
  • Hello, my name is Carla and I suffer from "Fatitude".
    Step 1, admitting I have a problem. Step 2, finding a cure.
    1. No problem, 2., I'm not so sure about. I am my own worst enemy. Bad thoughts, negative comments, feeling of failure, punishments; all brought on myself by myself.
    Yes I am definately my own worst enemy and I don't know how to stop. - 10/16/2012 9:21:33 AM

  • Nice article! I finally have come to acknowledge that I am a Drama Queen and an all-or-nothing. It is still hard to keep going, though, but I sure plan to keep fighting my demons. - 10/16/2012 8:14:54 AM

  • How embarrassing! I thought I was fairly good at maintaining a positive attitude, however having read this article I am 100% guilty of all these 'fatitude' problems! I also think I may need to start reading this everyday to get my act into gear! - 10/16/2012 7:23:27 AM

  • Although I'm not a fan of the consistent use of the term 'fatitude', as I find it kind of demeaning, the article was definitely good and spot on! I found that I have a lot of the 'symptoms' here and now have also been alerted to some of the helpful 'fixes' to those so-called symptoms. I'm really enjoying this site and the articles so far! - 7/22/2012 3:39:09 PM
