The "Why I Failed Department" Weight Loss Edition
I love this 1913 solicitation for The Country Gentleman magazine! What a great idea! I was thinking it can be applied to many things, not just problems of the gentleman farmer. "Crops that grew and flourished but yielded little" made me think of when I had lost weight on a gimmicky diet. It felt like winning but success was always fleeting. "Extensive plans that were intensive failures" is so epic-sounding! I can think of some examples in my own life; I'm sure we all have them. Sticking to weight and eating healthily, I'm thinking of everything I tried up until my success that I've shared extensively in my blog and book. It's very true that my past failures are complete motivators and indicators of what can never work for me.
What about you? What would you submit to a Weight Loss Edition of the "Why I Failed Department" as an example of what led (or can lead) to a more informed and successful next attempt?
