In the early days after my grandmother's death, I found myself standing in the cookie and candy aisle. "Just have what you want," I told myself. It was comforting but it led to weight gain. Obviously, it wasn't the right time to be calorie counting. This is a particularly poignant example but we make these decisions about food every day consciously and unconsciously.
Is there something more important going on for you that overrides sticking to your diet? When your mental, emotional or physical energy is elsewhere, change is hard. Maybe you are not overweight and you have better things to do than lose the few pounds you'd LIKE to lose but don't NEED to lose.
If you are not at a healthy weight or already experiencing negative effects on your health you need to make it your priority. Ask yourself what you spend your time and energy on and why. What is more important to you than weight loss? How can you work around that or rebalance your priorities?
Like this approach? I'd love to work with you.
