What are you going to do when you go right to food and you promised yourself you wouldn’t?
How will you recover from blowing your diet?
What if you gain some weight while you’re dieting?
What effect will bingeing have on your resolve to lose weight?
So….Do you have what it takes to make such mistakes, fail to live up to your wishes and expectations, and come out on top? In other words, are you resilient enough to triumph over mistakes and failures and keep to your weight loss regimen?
How do you handle your feelings when you make a mistake (big or little) and when you fail? What coping skills do you bring to feeling frustrated, humiliated, ashamed of yourself, angry with yourself, defeated, guilty, or depressed?
As you can see, a weight loss regimen requires much more than diet and exercise.
