Big Butt BabeI do believe that a positive mental attitude has so much to do with weight loss; the ability to maintain a weight loss; and to stay motivated with the chosen weight loss program. My goal is to stay motivated with Jenny through the positive attitude that comes from eating and living well.

The other 50% of my days that I’m not dieting, my life is all about eating. After all, I am a food addict or a compulsive overeater. My emotions can control my eating and food can also control my emotions.

When I’m getting ready to start a weight loss program, I’m fraught with the possibility that starting another diet program may cause me to be obsessed with food – thinking about it all the time. Never really conscious of the fact that whether I’m on a diet or not – I’m always thinking about food. But, every time I take that first step to start another diet, I’m once again amazed at the psychology of weight loss. It’s as if the “food hangover” that I live with most of the time that I’m not making good food choices – is gone and my mind is suddenly clear again. And this can happen as soon as day two of any weight loss program I’ve tried.
