How To Avoid The Emotional Pitfalls Of Weight Loss
When people talk about weight loss, they talk about it as a zero sum game: numbers on the scale go down, happiness points accumulate. They don't talk about how much of an emotional rollercoaster it can be: feeling like a loser when you give in to that piece of chocolate cake, constantly comparing yourself to others, not feeling at home in your clothes or body.
The reality is, your worth is more than a number on the scale. It's all the times you make a coworker smile, being the person your family members confide in, having the strength to keep going on hard days. Weight loss is just one part of your life, and your focus shouldn't be on calorie counting. Diet-To-Go can help, by taking the planning out of weight loss, so you can focus on what really matters. They send you fresh, chef curated meals weekly, customized with the right amount of calories for your best weight loss. They take into account your unique weightloss journey and goals to make a plan that's right for you. The meals don't require the prep work of traditional cooking, just heating, but they aren't the overly processed TV-dinner style frozen meals you're used to. Plus, they're low in sodium in cholesterol, and have plans if you're trying to stick the specialty diets like Keto. It's real food, just like if you had an in-house chef to cook your meals and plan your menu for you every day.
The best part is you can get as many meals as you want shipped to you a week, that means if you want 3 meals a day, 7 days a week, so you don't have to think about anything, that's totally fine. If you only want 2 meals a day, 5 days a week, so you can go out to dinner on the weekend as usual, that's fine too. No matter what you chose, Diet-To-Go takes the guilt out of weight loss. No more obsessive calorie counting or trying to totally eliminate carbs. You can let them do the work, so you can get on with your life. Plus, with plans starting at less than $9 per meal, you'll be saving money, too.
If you're going to lose weight healthily, you have to focus on your emotional support system as much as what you're putting in your body. Otherwise you can yo-yo right back to where you were before (or heavier). For Jen Carroll, a sales executive who lost 50 pounds using Diet-To-Go, DTG's online community gave her the emotional support she needed. "It's nice to see other peoples' stories, challenges and successes," Jen said. "Whether I am being inspired by someone else or sharing something I think could help, the interaction is good for me."
It's so important that we admit to ourselves that no matter what commercials might tell us, weight loss is hard, and if it's something that's a goal for you, you deserve as much help as you can get.
