The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.
~ Lao Tzu
Are you trying to scam your diet?
Now, be honest with yourself. Do you “forget” to stock diet friendly foods? What about absentmindedly ordering that Grande Mocha Malt Frappuccino at Starbucks last Monday morning? You know, the Monday you were going to start your diet – again?
Maybe you’re the type that figures once the morning diet is shot to hell, you may as well blow the rest of the day? Or, better yet, wait until next month?
What if you just needed a gentle reminder when you first wake up while your brain is still foggy? Try these two simple tricks: Run a piece of masking tape across your bedroom doorway – something you’ll run smack into first thing in the morning. Nothing like being caught in a spider web to enhance the memory! Now run another piece across the bathroom mirror where you shave or apply make-up – another instant reminder.
My last favorite “reminder” trick is just a plain ‘ol mind game. Hide everything! Trying to break the high calorie coffee habit? Stash the coffeemaker; ditch the mucho calorie Coffee-mate.
Wish you could pass on McDonald’s for lunch every day? It’s hard to buy anything if you leave your money at home. Yeah, you could hit up your coworkers, but then you need to ask yourself: “How badly do I want to be thin?”
Could it be that you’re afraid? Scared that you’ll fail again? You feel nervous that it will be too hard or complicated? Leery of not understanding all the “rules” for the newest diet you’re trying?
Well, clearly you’ve been trying the wrong ones! Why not give the Kimkins diet a try?
The basic diet is so simple you could write it on the back of your hand. It’s so easy your 2nd grader will have it down pat in 30 seconds. Complicated? Not even. The purpose of Kimkins is very simple – fast weight loss, no messing around, no coddling.
Our mental attitude and mindset is everything when it comes to mastering weight loss. If you’re not on board consciously, then your subconscious is going to play every trick in the book on you – and win. Don’t let that happen. Be the boss. Outsmart yourself!
Oh, and next time you’re going to “forget” to pass on your favorite Starbucks creation, try to “remember” that Grande Mocha Malt Frappuccino will set you back 600 calories and 95 curbs!
