Most Americans wish to lose weight, regardless of how we appear to others. We have very good reasons. We are concerned about our health. We want to avoid social stigma, and reap the considerable benefits of being more attractive. We may want to address pain in our joints, or be more active and get around more easily. These are all valid goals, and well worth working toward...
Unfortunately, we have some mistaken beliefs about how to achieve these goals. We believe that we must lose a significant amount of weight BEFORE we can reap any of these benefits. We also believe that through willpower we can force ourselves to eat less, give up "bad" foods, and exercise more. We believe that if we have the strength of will to do this, we can and will reach our goal of losing a specific number of pounds. This leads many of us to diet.
