Yes, there is one sure fire way to KISS dieting good-bye. How? Well, just Keep It Simple, Sweetie. Let’s break it down.
We must keep in mind that diets don’t work. Don’t let the lure of a new program, a friend’s weight loss, guilt, or an infomercial entice you right back into the “diet monster’s” trap. You know he’s lurking, so keep your mind clear of that garbage.
It doesn’t matter what you weigh or what you eat, so “It” doesn’t have to a formal plan of action. “It” is what you’ve been missing… “It” is life! So, go live it!
The more complicated you make eating, the quicker you’ll find yourself back on the diet rollercoaster. Simple is best. Eat when you want, Eat what you want, Stop when you’ve had enough…. see, simple.
This one is about being kind to yourself. Your “self-talk” should be sweet and caring. You wouldn’t dare call another person dealing with these issues “stupid” or “fat” or “moron” or “loser” or “ugly”… see, we could do this all day. No, you would encourage, comfort, and support that person through the journey. You would tell them that you love and accept them no matter what size they are. Extend that kindness to yourself… you’ll thank you for it.
Say, “Bye, bye diet mentality!”
