How many diets have you "failed" at?
If you imitate the majority of us, more one. Maybe many at least one.
But, it's not if you fail or the number of times you fail that counts.
It's how you handle failure that matters in the long run.
The Same Coin
Failure and success are two sides of the same coin.
Dream up all but everything in life. You almost never have success without failure.
You learned to walk by dropping 100's if not 1,000's of times. But you never felt a failure and were never labeled as a failure.
Mom and Dad kept encouraging you and you kept moving up and trying repeatedly until you cottoned right.
You learned to read by goofing up your alphabet enough times to finally realize right. By ruining writing out the letters 'till you got them right. By juice plus distributor misspelling and misreading the words until you got them right. The mistakes abounded. But you were never a failure - you were just learning.
Same with riding a bike, driving a car, playing a sport, dating, for gosh sakes. Choosing a career or a mate, perhaps.
Life is an examination process where failure and success are two sides of the same coin.
What's Different About Dieting?
Somehow dieting coincides and in some ways it's different from most other things.
It coincides because failure and success should go together - 2 sides of the same coin.
It's different because, let's face it, you don't really wish to diet firstly. And you probably have negative thoughts and feelings about dieting.
Everyone intends to walk, read, drive a car, and have a great career and a great mate. Nobody likes to diet
