We need to maintain Focus
on our Behavior

Our weight is not the problem.
It’s our eating that’s the problem
My weight is not my problem.
It’s one of the EFFECTS of my problem.
My problem is I eat more food than my body needs.
Not more than somebody else’s body needs.
More than MY body needs.
Not more than my body used to need when I was younger or more
More than my body needs NOW.
Not more than my body WOULD NEED IF I had different genes and metabolism.
More than my body needs with the genes and metabolism that I have.
That’s why there’s extra weight on it.
My above post reflects thoughts and attitudes that I've shared here at DietHobby over and over, and my words here contain a paraphrase of an online post I recently ran across by someone who quoted a UK addiction counselor, Gillian Riley. As a result of discovering that she appears to have an attitude quite similar to mine, I have purchased a Kindle edition of her latest book "Ditching Diets", and am checking out her website. Most of you know that ... as a part of my dieting hobby .... I read many, many diet books, and it is possible that after reading it, I might review it or share more of my thoughts about it.
