Diets don’t work. Everyone knows that. If you’re going to go on a diet, you’re going to put the weight back on.
What you need to do is change your lifestyle. Change your eating habits. Change your exercise regime (or at least start one).
I am now in the process of doing just that. I do admit that initially, right now, I am on a diet. But I know this is just a quick fix. A quick solution to an age old problem. I want to lose some weight quickly. I have done some things hard (for example, I have put myself “on the dry” this month). Other things are just about self control and discipline. Unfortunately discipline is something I have very little of, or so I thought…
I have started my diet and the plan is to migrate onto a better eating plan. I have gone cold turkey on some of the most beautiful food groups in the world, namely: Carbohydrates. This is the diet part I am talking about. I am not talking about giving up on carbs altogether. But just for a while. 2 weeks, to a month. I’m at the 2 week period now and I had my first bowl of pasta today. Probably larger than it should have been, but I will not be having anymore for a few more days/weeks yet.
The point of this particular blog though, was to let you know that it hasn’t been that hard. I have a lot of motivation to keep strong and this motivation is keping me on track. The best part is, the motivation itself makes the cravings less severe. I would not mind having a drink or two (I love wild turkey), but know it would be the beginning of the end again. Then I would probably fall into my old ways quickly and probably order a pizza at the end of the night.
So what is my motivation?
