How many diet plans or diet tools have we stumbled on over the years and thought, “maybe THIS could be the thing that works for me?” It’s normal to be hopeful when, having been let down by all other weight loss options, something new comes along. If we haven’t tried it, we are excited about the prospects of trying something different.
I stumbled upon a blurb about a new weight loss tool today, a robotic weight loss coach! That’s what got me thinking about the amazing amount of money people must spend on gadgets, meal plans, counseling, meal-replacement shakes, medications, you name it, all in the name of weight loss. I’m not saying anything good or bad about this cute little robot, I just know for a fact that logging my daily intake on her computer-screen belly wouldn’t help me stop snacking at night…
Trying new plans and diet tools without addressing the root of the problem will likely not pan out in the end. When it comes to weight loss success, I still stand by focusing on changing beliefs & old thinking errors that have encouraged negative habits or patterns with food.
What thinking errors have you identified as obstacles to making positive changes?
