While we're still on the subject of getting healthy and losing weight, I want to share an idea about a will power tactic that I discovered years ago.
This little trick has a good chance of working if the person will make a decision to commit to it. The only drawback is that it can be inconvenient as it takes a little time and trouble to do. But if it works for you, it's worth it. Here goes: The next time you're about to go off your diet because you can't resist that chocolate cake, do this:
Lock yourself into a bedroom or bathroom where there's a full-length mirror. Now take off all your clothes. Now look at yourself in the mirror.
How bad do you want that cake now? From my own experience, I will guess not nearly as much as before you looked in that mirror.
I have another somewhat unusual tip for dieting that I will tell you about on my next post. Till then, let's keep those New Year resolutions going!
