Just a quickie–consider it a Twitter tweet, except not! 🙂
I got a new (2007) Beck book tonight, but this time it’s by MARTHA Beck (related to Dr. Judith Beck?!) called The Four-Day Win, which encourages readers to “End your diet war and achieve thinner peace.”
I am only on the first chapter, but one line really stands out and I wanted to share it before I get any further into the book.
Beck says, “Basing a weight-loss effort on willpower does the very things to your mind and body that are virtually certain to make you fatter in the long run.”
I’ve often felt that the reason I am not back at my goal weight has been a lack of willpower, and I bet many of us have felt that way, too.
Keeping weight off is clearly about way more than willpower; it really is about changing our behaviors for the long-term. And even when we make positive changes, we’re not always 100% out of the woods.
I love authors that make us think… and I’m looking forward to what else she has to say.
How about you? Have you read this book? I hope to read it over the next week or so.
