I know some of you on here really swear by Dr. Phil's Ultimate Weight-Loss Solution book. I just started it today, and it's spoken to me all ready. I wanted to share a blurb with you all:
Stop telling yourself that you absolutely "have to" lose weight, because that's a lie. You don't "have to" lose weight. You may want to, you may even need to, but you don't have to. It would be nice if you did, but it isn't something you must do. That's just what you have been telling yourself because you thought it would motivate you. Lying to yourself like this won't help you; trust me. You have to breathe--no choice there--but you don't have to lose weight. So instead of all that drama and self-recrimination, I want you to choose to feel very calm and very relaxed. Get up each morning, look at yourself in the mirror, and see yourself not as someone who is overweight or out of shape, but as the someone you will become, a person with a greater level of dignity and worth who, for probably the first time ever, is finally going to succeed--for a lifetime.
For those of you that have read it, have you written in it in your blog? Refer me to those entries, please, I'm interested in reading more about this book!
