Do You Ask Yourself, "Why Do I Overeat?"

"I know I'm eating too much. I just can't seem to help it..."

With weight loss, knowledge is power...

  • Losing weight is mostly mental.
  • But that doesn't mean "willpower."
  • No. It's just this: the more you know about weight loss the easier it will be for you to lose weight.
  • First answer questions like, "Why do I overeat?"
  • And this leads to control. Simple but powerful.

Lies and nonsense

I'll give you an example. Let's say you've been watching TV. And the TV tells you that you can lose weight in your sleep without exercise and eat all you want to. You've seen those ads, right?

Now, let's say you believe that. You get the idea that it's true, that it's possible to lose weight. In your sleep. Without exercise. And eat all you want to.

Well, you can't. It's not possible. It doesn't work that way. Have you tried it? Where are you now?

False information

This is vital: Just that much false information can keep you from losing weight. You end up walking around asking, "Why am I overweight? Why do I overeat?" And you don't get anywhere.

That kind of false information ties up your mind in a bad way. It seems like a solution to you. It should work.

After all, the "expert" said it was true. But it doesn't work for you. But you still think it should. And it stops you in your tracks.

You keep trying to lose weight that way. And you keep failing.

And then you don't learn about what really does work. Because you get stuck on the other false idea. The one that didn't work.

"Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement."

Foster C. McClellan
