Wack me on the head with a reality check,before I fall into that trap again…another diet. I’m cringing hard as I consider going back on the South Beach Diet. Its a wonderful diet,but its still what it is…a diet. What’s a fat lady to do? I tried to think & become slim…it didn’t work. The Jon Gabriel Method for losing weight doesn’t work for me. I’m elected to diet & exercise. I’ll need time to talk myself out of it. Let me face the truth…there’s no magic way to lose weight. Wouldn’t it be ideal if we could lose 25 pounds a week, eating junk food while reading a book & visualizing? A bucket of fried chicken & a book,watching the pounds vanish. That would be epic. Its NOT reality,NOT possible.
