Do you suffer from fading diet willpower? You put yourself on the scale and the weight stays the same or rises. You look despondent. What am I doing wrong? Are you cheating just a little bit? Did you put too much salad dressing on your salad? Did you just have to finish that last piece of chocolate cake? Did your eyes glaze over when you saw that fried chicken at the grocery store? It's not your fault. How could you pass up that delicious fried chicken. Mmm, chicken legs, chicken thighs, chicken breasts, oh my. Yes, looks like you are definitely experiencing fading diet willpower. It happens to the best of us.

I have great willpower during the day, but at night, the willpower is spent and there goes my diet.

Willpower frequently gives way to food, sensory desire.

Please! I am on my third day and can not allow such thoughts or images come to mind. Maybe should just go to sleep.

Keep at your diet. Many people succeed at losing weight.

I just do not diet, because diets are not sustainable. Instead, I try to make lifestyle changes that will help me to be healthier and that I can maintain. That means that I can have a little more dressing or the last piece of cake or some fried chicken. It also means that when I do, I do not feel the need to over-indulge in those things.

I was just at the doctor's office and my weight has not changed in the last year at all which is excellent.
