Weight Loss: Temptation and How to Deal with it

Aug 7, 2008
How often have you embarked on your new diet program only to quit after being on it for a few days or weeks just because you couldn't resist temptation for your favorite treats? You make that mistake and feel that you haven't only failed your diet, but failed yourself as well.

This happens all the time and is not a reason for you to give up trying. We all fall short sometimes, so just get back on the wagon and try again.

It's important to make sure you are on the diet plan that is right for you. If the plan you are on isn't meeting your craving needs, maybe you need to try a different approach. Research the various diet plans and find one that suits your needs better so then you won't be tempted to stray.

It's not easy, but if you're passionate about your weight loss goal, then you can do it. If you fail on your diet, pick yourself up and brush yourself off. Analyze what set you back and decide ways that you can prevent it from happening again.

Gain some support from those around you. Friends are usually more than willing to come to your rescue when temptations become too overwhelming for you. They can also be that shoulder to cry on when you succumbed to a temptation.

If you are finding it hard to stay away from temptations, maybe you are not on the right type of diet; maybe there is another plan that will suit your eating habits better. As they say, "there is more than one way to skin a cat".

Motivation is the key to success; not in just dieting but in everything in life. Rewards are motivators so make sure you reward yourself for your successes; no matter how small they are; give yourself a pat on the back.

I think it would be safe to say that every person that has ever started a diet has failed at least once. So don't be so hard on yourself. Write down your intended weight loss goal and hang in on the refrigerator so that every day you can be reminded to stick with it.

The secret to a successful diet is knowing that you are trying and working towards a goal. You aren't a failure if you sneak a cookie now and then; just keep it within moderation. The intended goal should be your focus; not the mistakes you've made.
