Janie: I was doing so well. I lost like 13 or 14 pounds already. You know that don’t you?
Theresa: Yes, you have been marvelous, steadfast to your weight-loss diet plan. You put us all to shame with your diligence.
Janie: I lost my motivation for staying on a diet.
Theresa: What happened?
Janie: I don’t know. I just lost it.
Theresa: When did you lose it?
Janie: It was over the weekend. My daughter and her family came over for a meal, and I blew my diet regimen right then and there. I not only ate rolls and dessert and everything else, I also put whipped cream on top of my dessert.
Theresa: Sounds like you didn’t lose your motivation. You switched it from ‘keep dieting’ to eating whatever you wanted.
