Remember how I made a few simple changes last month to my diet to see if I could lose a few pounds without crippling myself with hourly hunger pains and fantasies of cheese dip?
Well, it paid off with the loss of a few pounds. And while that may seem like a small victory in a big battle, it’s a victory nonetheless. I think it’s easy to get hung up on only seeing the bigger picture for your goals, and that’s probably why many diets fail.
I know I am guilty of unreasonable frustration when results didn’t come as quickly as I hoped, but you just can’t remove 10 years of bad habits by doing everything “right” for two months. It’s been an interesting revelation that doing everything “sort of right,” can also be successful in the long-term.
