Let’s break down the weight loss process. Not from the standpoint of pounds lost or dieting, but having to do with changing your behavior. Because changing your behavior is what you want to accomplish in order to successfully diet and lose weight.
When you attempt to change your behavior, expect a loss of stability, because what you built and are housing is getting a makeover. And the loss of stability will continue over a period of time, since it takes time to switch from old behavior to new behavior.
The switch from old to new over time is made through learning. And all the principles of learning apply. This includes such things as reinforcement, repetition, memory, perception, action, information gathering, and feedback. Instability is simply part of the learning process.
So hold on to your hat and get yourself prepared for a bumpy ride, with instability and learning as your constant companions on the road to changing your behavior.
