I have a weight problem. (Even if I am trying not to think about it).
I know that it’s not good for my health. (Even if I am trying not to think about it).
And I am doing nothing to improve the situation. (Because I am trying to convince myself that I’m making the right choice).
So what pleasure do I get out of being fat? (Because I am trying to convince myself that eating is my only pleasure in life).
Objections and prices to pay:
It’s not easy to lose weight. (Nor be fat).
It takes a lot of work. (As it does to be fat).
It costs a lot. (Being fat does too).
It takes a long time to lose weight. (To gain weight too).
Reality and potential benefits:
Losing weight without becoming hungry. (Very easy with a good personalized diet).
Maintaining it for the long term. (Easy with monthly follow-up).
Managing your emotions. (Easier to learn to manage your emotions instead of always feeling bad about yourself).
Do mental jogging. (It’s just as easy to talk positively about yourself as it is to talk negatively).
” It’s incredible. It’s far easier than I would have believed. I am not hungry and am able to say no. That never happened before. I don’t feel like I’m on a diet. I make food choices that are right for me and I enjoy. My friends and family no longer recognize me. “
