Obession With Dieting

- POSTED ON: Apr 27, 2011




“I just want to live a lifestyle free from an obsession with diets”

This appears to be a common Theme among dieters.
The majority of people just want the problem to go away.

They want to eat like "normal people"
and be in the "normal" weight range.
They'd like to lose and maintain their weight

without difficulty or much thought.

Some people who are only overweight,
or just above the border of obesity, are able to do this.

Unfortunately, those who have lived with a lifetime of obesity
are unlikely to ever accomplish this...
even when the way of eating is very simple.

I am one of those people with a history of morbid obesity,
who has lost a great deal of weight,
and I have maintained my weight near my goal for the past 5 plus years.

I have found it Beneficial to incorporate
an obession with diets into my personal lifestyle,
to Embrace the Devil,
and make Dieting into an enjoyable Hobby.

With some effort, an "obsession with dieting"
can be changed from a "bad" thing, into a "good" thing.

Mostly because I am too tired to get up. I do note your use of the word some, however, if I quit measuring me or my food, I will gain. I am glad to finally know and accept this about me and then just find the easiest way possible to do these 2 easy things to maintain the body type I chose. If as I age, I need to eat less or gain, then I can chose that too. But that is the future. For today, I like what I am doing. I have new recipes to try and excursions to embark on. Gratis for the thoughts.

             TexArk, I totally agree with your opinion about intuitive eating re obese or formerly obese people.

Intuitive eating was the worst diet I ever tried. I just gained and gained.
