How many times have you been in a hurry to get somewhere and then you hit traffic?  You probably get frustrated and try to think of ways to get out of the traffic.  You may even feel desperate enough to drive on the shoulder.  But the end is always the same, in time you make your way through the traffic and arrive at your destination. 

Being on a Diet Center program is like traveling on a road.  You’re happy as long as the road is smooth and nothing slows you down from reaching your goal.  However, many people will hit “traffic.” This may be when the weight loss slows down or stops, or when one gives in to temptation to cheat.  When this happens, you can become frustrated that you are having difficulty reaching your weight loss goals.  You may begin to think of excuses to quit your program. Or, you may try to take a “shortcut,” like skipping a meal the next day. 

But what is the best way to get through traffic?  Do you stop driving?  Do you turn around, or leave the road and try to find another way?  If you stop or leave the road, you may never make it to your destination or take longer to get there.  Just like in a real traffic jam, you need to be patient and perseverant.  Remember that you’re not alone.  Other members and Diet Center staff are available to support you.  On the road, every little bit of movement you make gets you closer to your destination.  On your program, every wise food choice you make, or every minute you’re physically active brings you closer to your weight loss goal!
