You don't need more just need to decide.

The above was Seth Godin's post yesterday.  I have to say I like the brevity.  However, I think for our purposes, it needs to be ammended.

I am more inclined to say -- You don't need more need to take action.  Deciding isn't the hard part in this.  Which part of "eat whatever you want -- just eat less of it" is there to decide on??  I assume your thought process goes something like this:

Do I need to lose weight?  Yes.

Do I want to give up pizza, burgers, eating out with friends, icecream, cookies and any hope of ever enjoying another dessert for the rest of my life?  No.

If those two conditions describe you -- diets won't work for you.  Period.  All you are left with is the tool of Mindful Eating.  No decision required because that is your only option.

That leaves us with:  Taking action.  How are you going to put mindful eating into practice??

No....seriously!  How are you going to do it?  Click on the comments button and share.


  1. I am definitely not a dieter, it's too rigid, I need flexibility and choices. I need to feel like I am in control, not a weight loss "plan" or strict regimen. I need to be more intuitive to my what my body really needs instead of what I want to tell it that it needs.

  2. Good for you for knowing yourself so well, Sprout! So what's your Picture Plan for making this happen?
