ABCs of Weight Loss Psychology
Successful Weight Loss Paths
Most paths on this page are likely to be necessary for you to achieve weight loss success. Rarely will just one or two paths suffice. Most diets do not result in permanent weight loss. It is recommended that you read this site's pages a few at a time and return to follow more links for the first week you are trying either Brainwashing plan. Careful reading and SELF QUESTIONING are required or else you are likely to just pass these pages off as "I know that already." Where you disagree with ANY of the ideas can show you where your personal growth paths might best be.
Path #1: Most folks seek quick fixes to problems with weight. Quick fixes almost invariably fail in the long run. Be prepared for the long haul. Keep returning to this site over the next few months.

Path #8: Regular at-least-moderately-aerobic exercise is absolutely required. Without such vigor, weight reduction efforts will most likely be futile. Start your moderate exercise ASAP after checking with your physician.
Path #9: Overeaters' Anonymous usually helps. Often such support groups are essential for success. Yes, such groups are not perfect, but what group ever is? Try it for at least three months before deciding that it is "wrong" for you. It may just be your psychological defenses which are feeling threatened by OA and make it seem "wrong."
Path #10: Visit EVERY link on this page, not today but soon.
Other Paths: Many find therapy useful and it is essential for some. Pills seem only to work temporarily. YOUR PATH may take you elsewhere. The unhappy current truth: a final svelte figure is achieved by only a small percentage. My opinion is that the Brainwashing Programs have the best chance of success for most people.
