Healthy Eating: Waiting to Exhale

Yesterday a lovely lady who is enrolled in our healthy weight management program stopped by for a brief chat. She told me she had been communicating with all her friends and family back home about her experiences here. I wanted to share a comment she made to her mother. It’s one of the best dieting analogies I’ve heard in quite some time.

In a conversation with her mother, (who she admitted was a life-long dieter), she schooled her about why diets don't work . She said, “You know, mom, being on a diet is like holding your breath. You can only do it for so long. Eventually, you’re going to have to breathe!”

Brilliant! Maybe it’s been used before, maybe even around here, but I’ve never heard it and I just thought I’d share. For all you life long dieters out there, nothing else needs to be said. The truth, is the truth. And honey, you just said a mouthful.

Stop dieting, start living y'all!
