As you start a diet, you start thinking this is a restriction. You start counting points, calories, carbs, whatever. And you often think of yourself as denying yourself. Well, until you switch that mindset, that is all it will be is a diet.
A mind shift change needs to take place. You need to be able to get to the point that this is not a diet. It needs to be a lifestyle change. You need to change how you view it. Just because I lose 200 lbs in the end does not mean I am going to be able to eat the way I did before. I have to look at food differently.
I hope my blog and website helps you come to the mind shift change so that you can be successful in your weight loss journey, not only to lose but to keep it off for the rest of your life.
