There is a huge increase in advertising for weight loss, fitness clubs, diet products and deliver-straight-to-your-door diet food this time of year. Why? Because people are motivated with new year’s resolutions to once and for all lose weight, get in shape and most importantly — open their wallets and spend money on this multi-billion-dollar industry. How do I know? Because I’ve spent thousands of dollars on diet plans and diet foods, and probably lost the weight equivalent to at least two human beings in the process.
Now, since losing 50 pounds in 2001, I simply “Live Thin,” and stay the same weight. It’s much cheaper, more sane, and my clothes are all the same size in my closet. However, if you have read my “Living Thin” blogs, you know that I don’t care how people lose weight, I think it’s more about living the thin lifestyle when you reach your “Happy Weight,” that’s the most important thing of all.
Here are some of my favorite blogs of the year, and some that you may find helpful if you are making a New Year’s Resolution to lose weight:
Life After Dieting; What Now, That the Pounds Are Gone? For ideas on how to keep that hard-earned weight loss off once it’s gone.
Diet Redemption: Red Dead or Not, You Always Get Another Chance, if you are discouraged from past dieting failures.
Yo-Yo Dieting; Stop the Insanity! if you want to get off that particular treadmill this year.
Breaking the Deprivation / Binge Cycle – sometimes a set-up during strict dieting.
And finally, always remember: Nothing Tastes as Good as Thin Feels. That says it all!
Have a wonderful new year, my friends!
Take care, and live well,
