|So many of our difficulties, particularly those with losing weight, have strong deep roots in our childhoods. These unhealthy roots often take many years to dig up and let go of. Permanent weight loss usually only comes AFTER much psychological growth and is usually one of the LAST psychological issues to be resolved. Therefore, a longterm CONSISTENT looking at one's personal growth issues is important.
CHANGING OUR FOOD PREFERENCES.....We commonly tend to think the reason we eat a particular food regularly is that we like it. A more accurate statement would be that we like that food because we eat it regularly. This is an important difference, because the more accurate statement leads to many possibilities for changing from a fattening diet to one that is slimming. If I have no psychological trauma or allergy associated with a particular healthy food, eating it regularly will cause me to start liking it more.
The above is an excerpt from a self-help book titled Be Your Own Therapist. More excerpts from this book may be found at ABCs of Personal Growth.
Why not incorporate these self help personal growth quotes as a useful part of YOUR longterm program to achieve permanent weight loss without diet pills or other not-so-useful programs?
