How many diets have you "failed" at?
If you feel like the majority of us, more than just one. Maybe many a lot more than one.
But, it's not if you fail or the number of times you fail that counts.
It's how you handle failure that matters ultimately.
The Same Coin
Failure and success are two sides of the same coin.
Remember almost everything in life. You almost never have success without failure.
You learned to walk by collapsing 100's or even 1,000's of your time. But you never seemed like a failure and were never labeled as a failure.
Mother and father kept encouraging you and you kept rising and trying repeatedly until you cottoned right.
You learned to read by screwing up your alphabet enough times to finally get it right. By ruining writing out the letters 'till you got them right. By juice plus distributor misspelling and misreading the words until you got them right. The mistakes were plentiful. But you were never a failure - you were just learning.
Same with riding a bike, driving a car, playing a sport, dating, for gosh sakes. Choosing a career or a mate, perhaps.
Life is a hit and miss process where failure and success are two sides of the same coin.
What's Different About Dieting?
Somehow dieting coincides and in some ways it's different from most other things.
It's the same because failure and success should agree - 2 sides of the same coin.
It's different because, let's admit it, you don't really desire to diet first. And you probably have negative thoughts and feelings about dieting.
Everyone chooses to walk, read, drive a car, and have a great career and a great mate. Not one prefers to diet
