Wow. I need to lose weight. That seems so very daunting. What am I going to do? How am I going to tackle this? There are so many “diet”s out there. The idea of following a plan with the word die in it is stressful in itself. So, I decided that I need a plan that will allow me to live a healthy life (without using the D word). I’ve researched some of the well known weight loss programs and have determined that those plans won’t work for me. Why? The plans don’t really address why there was the weight gain. I needed to acknowledge what type of eater I was (i.e. emotional, bored, etc.). Until I was completely honest with why I overate, the process to correct the behavior couldn’t begin. I had to address (and change) any false beliefs I held relating to unhealthy eating. This process has put me on the path of eating more raw foods and green smoothies. My body is now minus 30-lbs. I’ll share more with you next month.
