by Maria's Last Diet
I eat too much. That's my problem.
Skip all the whys and wherefores and how's and could be's. I eat. What the heck? My eating has been going on for years. Nothing new here. Don't ask me why. It just is. I am this way.
I've tried and tried. No one can fault me for not trying. This and that diet. Gyms. Exercise equipment at home. Walking with friends. I tried fasting, flushing, redirecting my feelings. I'm at a loss for what to do next.
I need weight loss help, that's for sure. But I'm going to need something very different, a powerful potion, a witch's charm, a genie's promise, a wizard's incantation. You see where I'm going with this—into never-never land.
So what's the cure for failure to lose weight? Is there one?
So many of us women are overweight and too many have reached the point of obesity. Surprisingly, though, some of our gender lost weight and they are keeping it off for good. I want to be like them, have what they have, sit back with pride because I finally did it.
That's all I have to say for now.
Sorry that you have had such a hard time of it. I can see you tried to lose weight in so many different ways.
But you must know by now that diets and exercise by themselves don't work for the majority of women. Something more is called for. This something isn't easy. It requires you to take stock of your habits. Not only eating habits, but other habitual behavior and thinking that send you right to food.
Check out your habitual ways of being, of interacting with others, of thinking, of dealing with things that lead to overeating, over-snacking, binging, wolfing down the calories. Take stock of your habitual ways, identify them, and then see what goals of yours are fueling your habit patterns.
This is where you need to make the change, right at the causal factors. Changing the symptoms (overeating, binging, over-snacking, wolfing down the calories) has proven not to be the answer. You know that from vast experience, yet you keep trying, using the old, self-defeating ways. Break out of that mold and try this new way. I know it's much harder. I promise you that what is hard for you at the outset will more easily make the symptoms go away.
If you need help with this new way, remember I'm always here for you. Just email me at email@example.com.
