An article in the New York Times (April 22, 2010) is very interesting. It talks about how these days, politicians who are on the campaign trail are becoming more and more weight conscious. The feeling is, someone running for office doesn’t want to appear too greedy and piggy, too much a part of the excesses of the establishment.
Most striking was a remark by one woman, a state senator, who was quoted as saying that since she hit puberty, there hadn’t been even one week in her life when she wasn’t on a diet. She stated that it was an ever-present condition of her life.
Politician or not, so many women find themselves in the same boat.
But, is this really a good way to live? Is there not a better way? Isn’t there some way to settle the weight issue for a woman, once and for all, so that her life can be lived free of a constant, painful struggle with eating and weight?
Yes, there is a way. What it takes is paying a good deal of attention to the psychological side of dieting and weight problems. The issues to be found there fuel a weight problem, keep it going, for a whole lifetime sometimes.
You don’t have to live that way if you don’t want to. Tackle the real, personal matters, and you won’t need to be on a diet every day of your life for the rest of your life.
