Commit to stop overeating and to your new weight

Keep this commitment no matter what

A 100% commitment to stop overeating to lose weight means you keep going, don’t stop until it becomes easy.

You want to lose weight, maybe you want to stop overeating. 

You’ve tried it before. Are you sceptical?

I have two questions for you: 

  1. What’s your current weight? 
  2. Why are you committed to your current weight? 

You don’t know it but you are actually committed to your current weight.

Today’s post is about your motivation to lose weight. What are the reasons that will keep you going? Not just this month but the next, and next year and the following. Specifically, what are the reasons that will keep you going when it gets tough?

Overeating and weight loss: ‘focus’ for faster results

For now, focus on this one goal and only this one

Focus: change one behaviour at a time

Have you started?

Fantastic! Now it is time to focus.

How many other goals do you have?

You might want to be healthier. It might not just be the weight. You may want to drink less, start exercising or exercise more consistently. Stop working long hours and have energy for other things in your life. Read more. See friends more often. Have better relationships.

The list is probably long and that’s great.

When is the ‘best’ time to start?

The best time to start is now

What if the best time to start losing weight is now?

When did you decide you wanted to lose weight? Was it a new years resolution? Probably not the first time you set this new year goal. Was it just before going on holiday?

Chances are, if you are reading this, it hasn’t happened for you. You are not alone.

In the UK and elsewhere many people have put on weight during the lockdowns. I was one of them. It had started early on and only got worse.

I’ve now lost 10 kg (approx. 22 pounds). It’s been more than a year and a half ago. I am finally able to keep to my desired weight, and what’s even better is that I know I can do this easily and permanently.

In this post series, I’ll show you how you can also do it. All of it, including the ‘being easy’ part. I’ll explain why it hasn’t worked before and how to make this the last time you do it.

The first question is, when is best time to start?

Do you want lose weight? Stop overeating

Weight is just the symptom, long term weight loss needs to address the cause and help to stop overeating

You want to lose weight.

You’ve tried many ‘diets’. 

You have plenty of knowledge of what healthy eating looks like. 

You like to be guided by research and follow good practice. Although you have tried some, you don’t get along with those strange ‘only eat crackers and apples for a week’ diets. You’ve tried them because, well, what else is there to try?

Despite all this, it just doesn’t work. You achieve some weight loss but can’t keep it off. You are tired of yo-yo dieting and weight cycling.

Unfortunately, knowledge is not enough, otherwise, we would all be the weight we desire and wouldn’t struggle with food and eating habits.
