How to Lose Weight
You’re on a fast-moving train, comfortable on the plush seat, gazing out the window, embarking on an adventure. You have your ticket, your itinerary, and are confident in your destination. You’re excited and eager to see what this day on the journey will bring you.
But what if your destination shifts to something you hadn’t intended? What if, somewhere along the way, the train goes off the track and you’re speeding off in the wrong direction? You feel incapable of stopping the train or of disembarking—it’s now going too fast. Passively you start to watch yourself heading off towards disaster because you’re out of control. Something else now controls you. Emotions and old habits are the engineer manning the switches.
Luckily, this train is only a metaphor and you can change your behavior at any time. Attitude is key here. To get back on track, headed to where you want to go, you need to feel excited about all the stops along the way, the small stations where you affirm your direction, knowing that what you’re doing is working.
