No matter how much you want to lose weight, ask yourself how much you value the status quo. What would you do without the snacks, the extra helpings, the eating late at night, the sweets, the salty stuff, the binging, secret eating, eating out four or five times a week?
So don’t expect that you’ll have sufficient motivation to change all this. You may rush into a diet and hop up on the treadmill, but, in the face of how much you value your current pattern of eating, the treadmill and the diet won’t do it for you.
The main issue here is how will you get yourself to want to change where you currently are with your eating to the kind of eating that promotes weight loss. “Getting yourself to want to change” is a function of your personal psychology’s effect on how to get motivated to lose weight.
