Brooke says that part of the reason we gain back the weight is that we don’t see this to be something we will do for the rest of our lives (I think that’s the notion of it anyway). We do the diet, we lose the weight, we’ve hit the goal and then it’s a ‘Now what?’ kind of situation. I get it because I have been there.
Since I was a child, the word forever gives me anxiety. It has a lot to do with the religious cult I grew up in. When it comes to losing weight, the thought of ‘forever’, the rest of my life, just makes me want to rebel and not stick to my protocol.
While I truly believe this is the way forward and, yes, this is for the rest of my life, my brain is throwing a tantrum and throwing ALL the toys out the cot.
Could you perhaps give me some perspective or some advice on how you approached this?
