Losing weight should make you happy
If dieting is making you miserable or stressed, then stop! Just stop!
Losing weight and moving towards your goal weight should be fun and exhilarating. That sense of achievement that comes when the scales keep going down and down should just spur you on all the way to goal.
If you are not feeling that sense of exhilaration, then chances are you are depriving yourself of certain foods and thinking about restrictions all the time. This way of dieting is what ultimately sees you putting all your hard earned weight loss back on. If this is you, its time to quit dieting and learn how to love losing weight the 80/20 way.
