Commitment Matters When Dieting

If you are in a relationship, you know that commitment isn't as easy as it sounds.

Somewhere along the Trail of Romance - the one that is sprinkled with roses and smells a bit like fine wine and an extinguished candle flame- you will come to odds with your partner. It's inevitable.

It may be over something as trivial as how you both prefer your bath towels to be folded, which is exactly what happened to Tina and Jim...

For argument's sake, let's assume that Tina and Jimhave both just....well, argued. They are very upset with one another.

But with a little time, theyboth come to their smartersenses and make up. They both decide never to fold the bath towels again! Who cares? The only thing that matters is the two of them.

The above story illustrates this point: Tina and Jim arecommitted to each other when theybegan theirrelationship.

When theyfought, they became very frustrated and disappointed with one another. But when all was said and done, and the candle smoke cleared, the fact remained that they both loved one another. They were both committed to one another. They made up. They found a solution. They didn't run off and leave one another.

This is exactly like dieting!

Let's take a look at Carol, who happens to be on a diet. She has been so good since last Monday, when she began her diet commitment. The second day she was on her diet, she lost 3 pounds!

However, today when she weighed, she had gained back 2 of those pounds.Bummers!

To make matters even more depressing, as soon as she finished jumping up and down on the scales at a very hard and fast pace, she noticed the bag of corn chips innocently resting on the countertop.

Carol is so angry at herself, as well as her scales, for not losing more weight.

And most importantly, for gaining back those two unwanted pounds. Before taking time to think with a clear mind, Carol collects the bag and before she knows what hit her, she's fishing down deep to dig out the last broken chip.

Do you think that Carol feels better now? Oh no! She feels worse now than when she weighed. She feels as if she has failed, that she didn't stick to her weight loss commitment.

Let's try to rewrite the above paragraphs, because they are just too heartbreaking to bear. Let's pretend that this is what really happened....

Diet Tips for Weighty Issues That Work

Carol has been so good since last Monday, when she began her diet commitment. The second day she was on her diet, she lost 3 pounds! However, today when she weighed, she had gained back 2 of those pounds. Bummers!

To make matters even more depressing, as soon as she finished jumping up and down on the scales at a very hard and fast pace, she noticed the bag of corn chips innocently resting on the countertop.  

Carol is so angry at herself, as well as her scales, for not losing more weight and most importantly, for gaining back those two unwanted pounds.  

What had went wrong?  Day after day, she had been true to her weight loss commitment.  How in a hoot owl's beak had she gained weight?

Carol walks over to the bag of corn chips, picks them up and reseals them with a handy binder clip.  Teenagers! They were always leaving food unsealed!

Next, she collects a diet soda from the fridge and heads to her office to think things clearly through.  Something guides her to sign on to her computer, and suddenly she is scanning the articles at Diet Bites.  

Oh my!  There it is - THE REASON that she gained weight rather than losing!  The well-written article tells Carol that sometimes when an individual diets, they may actually gain weight.

It's all about the metabolism adjusting, as it has been temporarily thrown into a state of confusion. It's not used to processing only healthy items, and less food these days, so it's in a temporary state of limbo.  The well-written article goes on to say that if she continues to be true to her diet, the weight will drop off.

Hum...  Wow!  "I'm sticking to my commitment," Carol thinks out loud. "Thank you Diet Bites."

Carol sticks to her commitment and a week later when she weighs, the scales indicate a five-pound weight loss!  Joy!  Rapture!  Only 15 more to go!  Wow, is this easy. See?  It's all about commitment.

Be willing to learn about the foods that you need to eat.

The best way to ensure weight loss is to take a bit of time to learn about the foods that you eat.  

Learn how many calories foods contain BEFORE you consume them. You may feel that this is very time-consuming. You may want to dig your heels into the ground and say, "NO!  I'm not going to go to all this trouble!  This is nuts!"

But think long and hard before you go off into the deep end. You'll be much happier skinny dipping!  What if counting calories is the key to losing weight?

What if you begin counting the calories in the foods you eat and you start losing weight?

What if you reach your goal weight by doing this simple thing? Well, this is EXACTLY what WILL happen when you begin to count the cost of the foods you eat.

It may take a while to learn how many calories a certain food has, but before you know it, you'll be a pro!  

Exercise

If you add activity to your weight loss program, it will excel the amount of weight you lose.  In other words, you'll reach your goal in a much shorter time. We recommend walking, preferably outdoors. It's one thing that most individuals can stick with.  Plan to walk at least 1 mile every other day for a total of 4 times per week.
