If you don’t start it is unlikely you will ever finish.
Years ago I made a New Year’s resolution to never diet. Every time ended in weight gain. After 3 weeks on a 5/2 diet I got on the scale this morning and weighed only 1 lb. less than when I started. Since the first weekend was a disaster, we were out of town visiting and partying with friends. I probably undid any benefit I got from the diet. So week 2 was catch-up. This week, week 3, is still in process so I won’t get too discouraged.
If you don’t commit, it is also unlikely you will ever finish.
These are my motivational thoughts as I continue my quest to loose weight, get stronger and healthier thru diet and exercise.
