    I heartily agree to this! I keep allowing myself to think that I’ll never be able to eat “yummy food” whenever I want to go on a diet, but usually this just ends up with binge eating and not caring anymore. I’m tired of going through that cycle. Thanks for the reminder!

    • Thanks! It took me years (25 to be exact) for me to realize diets don’t work. I was asked recently at a Weight Watchers meeting if I miss any foods I’ve given up. I thought it was a funny question because I don’t think I’m giving up anything because what I’m getting in return (better health, more energy, skinny clothes, being more active) is 1000% better than any potato chip or plate of pasta. Thinking you are “giving up” certain foods is the diet mentality drilled into us by the weight loss industry. Once I made the full commitment to changing my life, I never felt deprived.

        That’s so awesome how your point of view changed! I’m going to keep thinking on what you said. Yeah, it seems it’s all about “giving up” something rather than gaining something better.

      • The 2 things you need for weight loss: 1) A sense of urgency and 2) A belief in yourself. Once you have that changing your mindset from “I’m on a diet” to “I’m embracing a new lifestyle” is doable.
