Weight-Loss Books for Women —Using Psychology to Lose Weight
There are rules in your life that have been working perfectly to keep you fat. This book is your own personal guide to breaking one of them — the first big rule of women who stay fat. Breaking this first big rule will give you the help you need to stay on a diet and lose weight.
You know how difficult it is to stay on a diet if you’ve been on a diet before. There are so many pitfalls, so many things that seem to conspire against you. You long to stay on your diet; you’ve promised yourself this time you would. Then you are faced with a difficult moment and suddenly you feel all your power slip away. You plunge right into food.
With the help of the strategies in this book, you will be able to break the first big rule and handle these moments.
When you make the decision to diet, it’s a good decision. Going on a diet is an act of faith in yourself. It’s an acknowledgement of your desire to lose the weight. It goes beyond desire. It declares your intention to follow a concrete plan of action that will turn
your desire into reality. This is an important step.
The problem comes when all your good intentions fly out the window in an instant, maybe even the first time you are faced with one of those obstacles that pops up right in front of you and blocks your way. You look to that diet you have posted on your refrigerator to back you up, but it doesn’t really tell you how to break the hard and fast not-thinking rule.
How do you hold on to your decision to lose weight? How do you keep up the good work, stick to it? How do you keep your passion, confidence, and determination up front? How do you handle those moments when you might become anxious, angry, tired, defeated, hopeless—without eating?
There are definite things you can do at such crucial moments, ways that can truly defeat the obstacles at hand. Believe it or not, those times that can seem so daunting, so disconcerting, so overpowering, can be the very situations to give you the power you need to lose weight.
This may sound wrong to you, for how can times that are so problematic have what it takes to help you? You’ve surely heard it said that hard times make you stronger. This is very much the case when it comes to dieting. You can certainly turn those hard times around, use them to your advantage, and let them make you stronger.
How do you do this?
You break the first big rule of women who stay fat.
