Oprah's good friend and weight loss coach, Bob Greene, made his last appearance on the Oprah show. Oprah's audience was comprised of 100 ultimate viewers who've lost over 100 pounds each. The show was full of inspirational stories and even included an 11 year old girl who lost 50 pounds. Bob said, "Weight isn't just about food. It's about managing your problems." Bob shared his best weight loss tips which had nothing to do with food portions, the right amount of carbs and proteins or exercise. They are three questions which get to the heart of the struggle with food.
1) Why are you overweight? What is it about your life you'd change? Do you use food to medicate because you're not ready to address a problem or resolve an issue?
2) Why do you want to lose weight? Is it for an event or for others? It needs to be for you and because you want a better life for yourself.
3) Why have you been unable to maintain weight loss?
Okay, in a way there are more than three questions here. They all require serious soul searching and may not be easy to answer, but if you can answer them you are on your way to a life long journey.
