Exactly right! When I decided to quit doing things I couldn't do long term and opted for a complete lifestyle change, things feel into place and the scale showed it. I have small plates (and small bowls) too and it's just a small thing but makes a big difference. I know that bread and sugar are inflammatory foods for me and they pack on the pounds. I couldn't stand the thought of not eating those things. So I found a healthy way of eating that I can easily do for the rest of my life that enables me to things like eat bacon, cheeses and healthy fats daily. If I know I can have those things, I'm cool with not getting the bread and sugar! When you find something that feels right for you and you are longer looking at it as a diet, you won't feel like you need to hop from one thing to another.


I'm afraid instant gratification isn't possible even though our minds want results so badly. This is one tactic the weight loss industries use to get people to buy their products or use their services. Don't be discouraged; remember that slow and steady wins the race. Visualize that you will win in the long run and you will. Stick to the one strategy that is most natural to you and you will eventually succeed.
