Is your New Year's resolution to lose weight in 2012? The same weight you lost in 2011 and 2010? Why can't you make that weight loss stick?

End Your Weight Loss Struggle               
“A New Year’s resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other.” --Author unknown
 Is your resolution to lose weight in 2012? The same weight you lost in 2011 and 2010? Why can’t you make that weight loss stick?
*Dawn had the same question.   For three years she resolved to lose 10 to 15 pounds to jumpstart her weight loss program.   No diet was off limits.  Low fat, low carb, high protein, all liquid, all cereal, all cabbage soup. And each year she lost those 10 to 15 pounds. Unfortunately, when she started eating normally the weight came back. With an extra pound or two for added measure. Help! 
Eating to Relieve Stress
Last year Dawn slowly realized that dieting was not a permanent solution and until she understood her compulsive need to eat it would always be a temporary fix. Dawn is a single parent with sole responsibility for raising her two children. Juggling parenting, household, commuting, a job she hated and a boss insensitive to her unique needs left her exhausted and frustrated by the end of the day. The stress was making her fat because food, and plenty of it, kept her company in the lonely nights after the children were put to bed. 
Finally fed up, literally and figuratively, Dawn turned to BAMVP techniques to help her relax and eventually get control of over eating.   She found that writing down the troubles of her day gave her peace of mind. And she spared no punches in her private journal letting her real feelings out! Using words she dared not say out loud, especially to her boss was freeing. Dawn found less need for food when asserting herself this way. 
            Permanent weight loss is no longer a struggle for Dawn. The need that drove her to compulsively eat has been replaced. 
*From the book “When You Need a Timeout”.
