It goes on forever....

This may not be a comforting thought.  But you're adults, right?  You've handled lots of uncomfortable thoughts.

Managing your weight is a day to day thing.  Everyday.  You can take some days off if you want but at some point you're going to have to pick up your awareness again.  Maybe something will make you do that -- like your pants won't button.  Or maybe one day you'll just realize you don't feel as good as you used to.

And at that point, you're going to have to start paying attention to what is going in your mouth again.  The only variable is what you are going to weigh at that point.

Perhaps you think this is a bleak assessment.   I think it is the truth the diet industry doesn't really want you to know.  There are no magic beans, no magic machines, no magic pills -- there is no magic to managing your weight.  Just awareness and decisions to be made.

We are fortunate enough to live in a land of abundance -- but we aren't doing a good job managing that blessing.  Maybe it's time we start.
