I hear a lot of "well I did xyz way of eating and when I stopped I gained the weight back so xyz didn't work for me."
My response is usually asking why did they expect the weight to stay gone if they went back to their old habits that caused them to gain the weight in the first place. The majority of their answers is the same thing.....that it wasn't livable.
You have to be wiling to change in order to make changes.
This doesn't mean you have to change every single thing you want to change all at once. Sometimes just focusing on one small thing at a time is more effective. Take for example.......try getting in more veggies in your day. If you need to break that down to even smaller goals, look at the meals you don't eat any veggies at and try adding them into at least one of those meals. As you get comfortable with that then it's time to add in another small change.
It's a process. This is where you need to throw out that vision of perfection in your head.....you are a work in progress.
Soon enough, the small changes you make will add up to a bigger picture. Small changes will help you turn it into a lifestyle change & get you out of that yo-yo dieting nightmare that most of the world is in too :)
