Dieting is like winning the lottery

This may sound naive, but dieting is like winning the lottery.  Not so much that only one in 120,000 wins anything, but what happens after they win.  It’s a life changing experience. Lotto winners are advised to surround themselves with a team of financial advisors.

Losing weight is similar in that when you reach the goal weight, heck, even as you are losing weight you feel like your life is changing.  Then you reach the promised land, the jackpot, and it all stretches out before you.  Endless possibilities lay before you now.

Did you know that if someone wins the lottery but doesn’t get a plan and support they will more than likely end upon the same style of living and same financial hardships as before they won?

If you don’t have a plan for maintaining after losing the weight, you are setting yourself up for failure.  So the solution to this?  Surround yourself with a team (family and friends and experts) to help you maintain your goal when you win that lotto (or in this case, that magic number you’re searching for on the scale), and have a plan of action.

That’s all for now.
