The Outcome Means NOTHING without the Proper Behavior

Results don’t equal success.  More specifically, losing weight doesn’t mean a goal has been met.  And to drill down even more, the outcome means nothing without the proper behavior.

Are you stuck in the diet cycle?

Dieting.  We’ve all done it.  We’ve all hated it.  Yet, we keep going back for more.  Despite feeling unworthy, unsuccessful, and unvalidated in the process, dieting is the most-accepted form of self-abuse.
