How To Avoid The Fat Demons

Aug 17, 2007
If you have ever been on a diet or weight loss program you know that you constantly have voices talking to you to try to derail you from your goal. I like to call them the "Fat Demons". They want you to stay fat. Maybe it is a protective thing in your subconscious that says, "If you stay fat then people will stay away from you and you won't be hurt by bad relationships anymore."

You know what I am talking about, don't you? You are walking down the aisles at the grocery store and it isn't the fresh fruits and vegetables that are calling out to you, it is the twinkies and the Little Debbie snack cakes! Am I right? You know I am!

You walk into a convenience store and buy a diet drink and then you get to the checkout stand and you grab a chocolate bar to go along with it. Or you buy the Baked Lays chips and then buy a container of French Onion Dip to dip them in.

You are on your diet and every commercial on TV screams out at you with food ads. "Two Extra Large Pizzas for $10.00!" You go through the local Wendy's Drive thru and you order a grilled chicken breast sandwich with lettuce only and you have done good until the clerk says, "You want fries with that? Do you want to biggie size it? Want a Frosty to go with that?" Now you have your caloric intake for two days! Resist the temptation to let them sucker you into the crate of fries and the 55 gallon drum of coke.

You have to identify your weaknesses and know how to combat them. If you know that you have a weakness for junk food at your local convenience store stay out of it. If you have a craving for Big Macs and Double Whoppers with cheese stay away from McDonalds and Burger King!

Don't sit and eat in front of a TV, instead eat in front of a mirror! I'm not kidding. If you sit there and watch yourself eat and you are overweight you will become disgusted if you try to eat too much.

Don't let little slip ups get you down. Just say, "You got me that time" but you won't get me again. Keep a positive attitude.

Everybody's Fat Demons are different. You have to identify the ones that call to you and recognize them for what they are. Every time you beat them you will become stronger against them. Reward yourself with a "TINY" snack for beating them, don't go overboard.
