The Promise Diet™ -- a Radical Approach to Permanent Weight Loss

« Don't starve yourself; don't make stupid promises | Main | Progress »

No discipline necessary!

My weight loss has nothing to do with discipline. No discipline was involved in MAKING any of these promises. It was my complete lack of discipline, my lack of being able to be moderate in these areas, that led to having to make the promises. And once a particular promise was made, it was no longer an issue of discipline: I just couldn't eat the stuff any more; I had no choice. I short-circuited the need for discipline by removing the choice. My promises provided the sure hand holds I needed to stop sliding further and further down the slippery obesity slope caused by my lack of discipline; instead I was able to use them to climb out of the pit, step by step, promise by promise. And that has made all the difference. (And life is still great, even without the pop, most definitely!)

If you are morbidly obese, this website could save your life. I've not completed my journey, but I've lost over 115 pounds so far, most of it since starting something I'm calling "The Promise Diet." You can too, one promise at a time."
