I don't want to eat better but I have to

Posted by @dcprofessional, Nov 20, 2012

The time has come for me to get serious about weight loss. I should really lose about 130 pounds. I was at my ideal weight once for about three years, then I lost my job and put on a hundred pounds, and since then I’ve gained more. Now I need to get to a healthy weight but nothing works for more than a few weeks, as I love to eat (yes, for me it’s better than sex) and I’m addicted to chocolate (I could make a meal out of Haagen Dasz). Let’s discuss ways to stick with our resolutions.

I am glad that you are going to try loosing weight. Change one thing at a time. List the possible healthy foods that you might enjoy. Eat small frequent meals. Change your snacks. Make friends with healthy eating habit. Put yourself on the shoulder for every pound you loose. Enjoy eating a good meal rather than just fill your stomach with foods. Change your plate to smaller plate. Drink hot tea with meal. Make a list of all unhealthy foods and only adjust yourself gradually. Allow yourself to have a small bite of delicious chocolate at time. Live well and make plan for what you can achieve each day, each week, each month, and each year. Tell yourself what you will want to do when you are fit. You can do it, but one step at a time. Feel well.

I agree with JS Melody’s advice. Start slow and stay consistent. There is a lot of good literature out there in the “webiverse”. I suggest you look at the “Bright Future Series” put together by the Health Resources and Services Administration of the Department of Health and Human Services to start. At not sure if I am allowed to post a link or just Google “Bright Futures”. Good luck!
