The Stages of Dieting

Getting in the Mood to Lose
The next time that you need a little Diet Motivation, think of weight loss like this...
When Kate started her diet, it was like the beginning of a new day. The sun was rising big and bright in the eastern sky; it was a new beginning.
As Time Goes By....
As the days rolled by and pounds begin to go away, the sun kept rising high in the sky.
Soon, the sun was zenith - straight up in the sky.
And as time went by, Kate learned that dieting was like unto the weather - each day was a new day with different challenges.
When it rained cupcakes, she was in need of a back up plan. When it stormed and spurned a Tornado Pizza, she needed a protective place where all the slinging cheese, pepperoni and tomato sauce wouldn't harm her.
When it got too hot, she needed a cool oasis to dip her little tongue into - one filled with a liquid concoction that would satisfy her needs without adding pounds to her shrinking body.
The Great Rewards
And the day that Kate stepped on the scales and her goal weight registered in the tiny window - the sun was setting over the horizon. It was the most beautiful sight that she'd ever seen - her Diet Sunset.
Oh, she knew that there would be more tough days ahead, but she also knew so much more about herself, her mind and her body than she did before she started her quest.
Although the weight loss process may seem unending at times - as well as impossible, with willpower, diet savvy and support - we can reach our fitness goals. Like Kate - never, ever, never give up!
