Are you prepared? If you think you are, list what you brought with you to the process of weight loss.
Did you bring good motivation, a lasting commitment, a strong desire? What about plans? Do you have general plans like “I will do whatever it takes to lose weight” and specific plans like “I plan to start a protein-oriented diet in just a few days.” What do you have for tough situations? Have you thought about those? Did you bring anything with you for tough situations? Tough situations crop up all the time during the weight loss process.
You might, just might, have brought with you some of your reasons for failing to lose weight too. What are you going to do with these things? Do you know what they are and whether you still have them with you? Perhaps you are still carrying around that lack of persistence, which only got you so far when you were dieting last time. You could be harboring that need to emotionally eat. What about getting discouraged? Have you licked that yet, or is the likelihood you will get discouraged still very much with you.
As you can see, it’s probably best if you make a list of both kinds of foundations, good and bad, that you are bringing with you to the weight loss process.
