No Diet Works for Me

Many times an excuse we have for not losing weight leads us to the correct way to lose weight. This is true of the excuse I had and many have voiced as well. No diet works for me. 

This was more than an excuse for me. It was the truth. No diet worked for me because I always treated it as a short-term fix for what I knew in my heart was a long-term problem. I wanted to think my obsession with overeating certain foods was something I could overcome with a simple diet, special kind of weight loss pill or some new pre-packaged diet foods. 

I tried everything and nothing worked for me to lose the weight and keep it off. I felt doomed to a life of super morbid obesity. Which, according to a cardiac surgeon, was going to be a short life if I couldn’t figure out how to lose weight and keep it off but how was I going to do that?

Diet programs don’t work to keep the weight off, but they are still popular. They make their money from return customers. I’m raising my hand here because I returned to the diet program I was most successful on many times. Each time I spent thousands of dollars taking weight off only to put it back on again and add more to it.

I learned is that the only way to lose weight and keep it off is with habit change. Though it sounds difficult, it isn’t. It actually saved my life.
