Consistency is a highly under-rated trait,
but it is one of the behaviors that is most necessary
for successful weight-loss and maintenance.

The definition of Consistency is:
reliability or uniformity of successive results or events
To be consistent means to constantly adhere
to the same principles, course, or form.

There are many different ways to eat,
and many different diet plans.
Most all of them will work
IF they are consistently followed.

We don’t all have to have the same diet,
or the same eating plan,
but to be successful,
we have to develop a pattern of eating
which gives us the same or less calories
as our individual body burns.

We don't always have to eat the same things,
or always eat at the same times,
or even always eat the same amounts.
But we need overall consistency
minute after minute, hour after hour,
day after day, week after week,
month after month, year after year.

When talking about weight-loss or maintenance.
I think a “lifestyle change” means that
we have to change the patterns of eating
that made us become overweight or obese,
and replace it with another, lower-calorie pattern.

This, of course, involves and requires consistency.

One of the things I love about you is your straight talk :) I have not been consistent in many areas of my life for quite a while and I am suffering because of it. This post has reinforced my commitment to losing weight and maintaining my loss while also giving me some very good advice. Consistency is key! I will continue to work on being more consistent in my eating habits as well as in other areas of my life :) My new food plan, I don't remember it's name but I'm sure I read about it on the DietPower Challenge, is to eat the same thing for 2 of my 3 daily meals. My larger meal, which is actually my lunch, will include a variety of meats, veggies, starches and fruits. That's the plan although I imagine it's going to be quite a challenge for me to give up all my processed 100-calorie snacks and treats :) One thing I will be allowing myself is sugar-free treats like my absolute favorite chocolate cinnamon bread pudding yummy :) And I have you to thank for that delicious treat; Thank You <3
