DIETING FOR GOLD, SUCCESSFUL DIET PLAN

Why a Silver or Bronze Might Be Better
Diet Fever has hit in them thar hills! The gun has been fired and we're off, flying at full speed - out of the gates, running at a dead heat for the Gold Medal.
The wind's sticking its icy fingers through our hair, but we continue to run as if a giant Krispy Kreme donut is at our heels, one covered in dark chocolate and rolled in nuts.
Faster, faster, faster until..... We're lost. Where's the Diet Trail? Hum. Maybe we'll see it after all the dust settles.
We've been running awfully hard. And, what are those tasty looking chocolate chip cookies doing hanging on that tree to our left? Shall we have one? Or three?
If this sounds a bit like you, perhaps it's time to shoot for the Silver or Bronze, and leave the Gold to those naughty diggers.
Why is it best to settle for a Silver or Bronze? Ninety-nine and nine-tenths of the time, when an individual begins a diet, they do so with a frightening intensity.
On one hand, that's a good thing because if a person doesn't work to beef up their willpower, the diet is almost doomed from the beginning. The diet won't have enough oomph to get off the ground.
On the other hand, if the individual's brain is whipping those Fat Demons to death with a leather whip, it becomes more pain than the body can endure.
Seriously, that is how we tend to be. We walk through our lives like happy little dogs, telling ourselves that we will worry about losing weight tomorrow.
When tomorrow finally comes, suddenly, we detest the fat on our bodies. We hate it. We want to instantly melt it away. We go on a mind trip, inwardly chastising ourselves, and our unwanted fat, day in and day out - from the moment we begin dieting, to the bitter end.
If we are wimpy Diet Winnies, we will probably fail. And if we are too harsh on ourselves, we will probably fail. So what's one to do?
Weight Loss Solution: It's time to put away the leather whip and bring out the velvet - whip that is. Your mental velvet whip!
Yes, this advice is for everyone - even the hairy-legged guys. It is time to shoot for the Silver or the Bronze! Leave the Gold alone for now - it can weight - I mean...it can wait.
We must be kind to ourselves, and love ourselves - even those little wicked wads of unwanted fat.
Why? Because if we are content we will:
- be more apt to remain on our happy diet
- lose weight more rapidly due to a content well-being of mind
It's very difficult to balance your mental state while dieting - but give it all that you have! Don't be too strict, especially when you first begin your diet. Realize that your body has limitations, and if you push it too hard, you could very well land up in the hospital.
Remember - food turns into the energy that we need, which in turn operates our vital organs and makes our body work. So run - run for the Silver or the Bronze!
