Lost and Found

Darned car keys!  I can't tell you how many times I've lost my keys in the past week, let alone in the past year!  However, they always turn up staring me in the face!  This is the way I feel about weight "loss".  A close friend of mine said, "You don't want to lose the weight because you don't want to find it again"!  He couldn't have been more right!  Don't lose . . . SHED!

It's funny; we find ourselves on these fad diets and lose fifteen pounds or so before cravings start to kick in on full blast!  You raid your cabinets only to find yourself in the one cabinet that has been banned for what you thought was all of eternity.  As you toss things to the side rampantly you finally have in your sight that shiny plastic wrap that hugs a delicious vision of the forbidden.  Do you just take one little nibble for old times sake? YES, YES, YES!  Wait a minute . . . really?  Come on now!  You just indulged yourself in the forbidden fruit! You ought to know better, right?  Wrong!  You have starved your body of vital nutrients and now it's willing to consume anything in sight to satisfy your deficiency. Something in your diet was a miss and your body just can't take it anymore! Fad diets don't work for the long term!  All that weight you lost will soon find you.  We need to gradually make lifestyle changes that will stick.  Shed those pounds and forget losing!  Losing IS a losing battle!
