A powerful way to combat being out of control concerning our diet is to become fully aware of what certain food companies and" eateries" are doing purposely to make us overweight. I recommend the book "The end of overeating" by David.A.Kessler. isbn 978-0-141-04781-2 (penguin books- 2009). It will change the way you see all those addictive junk non -foods, and you will regain your health.Why can't we stop eating large quantities of certain foods and drinks? His book will tell you.
Have you ever read the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People? It's one of the best book I've ever read and it just relates to everything in life. Habit 2 is BEGIN WITH AN END IN MIND. I will quote Dr. Covey here. "Begin with the End in Mind means to begin each day, task, or project with a clear vision of your desired direction and destination, and then continue by flexing your proactive muscles to make things happen.
So everything you do, make sure it is part of your own blue print / plans. And think about the END result. This helps me a lot. And I hope it does the same thing to you.
Dont think about anything but today. Getting through today is the goal. Not if I will lose 5 pounds this month or if I will fit into that dress I love. Concentrating on staying within my calorie limit and my exercise today. I will worry about tomorrow when tomorrow comes.
I give myself a gold star at the end of the day when I accomplish my goals for the day.
