Sandra M. is a good friend of mine who would like to contribute a guest post, which I am sure you will find interesting. Hope you find some great tips in this article that she wrote.
I am on to my fifth diet plan. I failed in all the other four other diet plans I had tried. So I chose to engage in this newest diet plan with a fresh approach. Before getting overly confident that this particular diet could finally work for me, I seriously looked at myself and admitted my weaknesses. Coming from all sorts of diet plans, I learned that I had to look at myself and take into consideration certain personal issues that often detered me from achieving weight loss.
I recognized all my personal issues because I had used them as reasons at one point in time. Allow me to share the commonly ignored reasons as to why people like me fail with different diet plans.
I used to eat the same kind of diet food for weeks. My initial excitement and discipline to eat the same meals and snacks made me lose weight and eventually my mind. I was bored out of my wits and slowly sneaked in a burger or two.
• Diet as a temporary fix
After successfully losing weight in a plan, I became relaxed and complacent. Instead of instilling good eating habits the end of a diet plan. I celebrated my weight loss with roast beef and mashed potatoes. This made me gain back all the weight. I realized that eating healthy was a lifestyle. This lifestyle should not expire after a diet program ends.
• Losing patience
It is often said that patience is a virtue. That is really appropriate in weight loss. It sometimes takes weeks to lose a pound or two. Patience is the key. Remember the results from the quick diet fixes come fast but don’t last at all.
With all these reasons in writing, we are always reminded that losing weight takes time, effort, and discipline. As I embark on my next diet plan, I am more focused and more disciplined. I know I can make it this time. There is no way I can fail.
