Diet Tip Tuesday: Drop the Excuse

Last month, I spoke at a healthy eating conference and, once again, during the Q&A part of my presentation, people began to toss out the whys and wherefores and their reasons as to how it is that they cannot lose weight.
Once we made the distinction because real reasons and excuses, the proverbial light bulb began to snap, crackle, pop. And then, miracle of all miracles, people started to ‘drop the excuse.
Today, Our Lady of Weight Loss and I would like to share some of their excuses/reasons, and we invite you to add your own below! And then, drop it!
A reason is a noun, pronounced ‘rE-z&n – it is a statement offered in explanation or justification; something that supports a conclusions or explains a fact.
An excuse is a transitive verb, pronunced ik-’skyüz,- to make apology for; to try to remove flame from; to serve as excuse for: to justify. (Source: Miriam-Webster Dictionary)
There are reasons and – then – there are excuses. What may be a valid reason for one person may be an excuse for another.
What’s your excuse?
Slow Metabolism * Genetically Cursed * Addicted to Almonds * I Buy Cookies for My Kids * I Just Can’t * It’s So Hard * It’s Too Hard * My Husband Is Skinny & Eats A Lot & I Have to Eat with Him * I Don’t Want to Insult the Host * I Am Stressed * Tired * My Illness Made Me Eat * The Rain Made Me Eat * I’m Depressed * I’m Bored * I’m Anxious * I’m Sad * I’m Happy * I’ll Start On Monday * Start Tomorrow * I Love Food * Food Equals Love * Addicted * Can’t Quit * Can’t Give Up Chocolate * Food Is My Friend * Simply Not Inspired * Food Calms Me * Guilt * Member of the Clean-Plate Club * Quit Smoking * I’m Hungry * I Can’t Exercise * It’s the Drugs I’m Taking * I’m Peri-Menopausal * I’m Post Menopausal * I’m Pre-Pubescent * College Food * My Lifestyle Is Not Conducive * It’s Winter * It’s Summer * No Time for Exercise * No Time to Food Shop *Not Motivated * I Can’t Afford to Eat Healthy * Can’t Afford a Trainer * Can’t Afford to Join a Program * I Just Can’t Afford it * I’m Healthy for a Few Days But … * I’ve Tried Before * I Always Fail * I Eat Out a Lot * It’s My Birthday * Lots to Celebrate * Travel Makes It Impossible * I’m Trying * I’m Too Busy to Focus * Not a Good Time * I’m Injured * I Always Fall Off the Wagon * I’m Doomed * I’m Overwhelmed * Too Old * Too Young * I’ve Been This Way My Whole Life * I don’t just fall off the wagon; I lose track of the entire trail ride. Well, everything but the chow wagon. * Being a Mom (triplets no less) * honey, in the spirit of solidarity you need: my mother and I have a teenager * sugar addiction * failed so many times, am afraid to try again * it’s too hot to go out and exercise * it’s too cold to go out and exercise * my TIVO isn’t working and I’ll miss my favorite show * just don’t care anymore * I’m 60 and don’t think it matters anymore if I am 50 pounds overweight…. BUT, really I do * I don’t get enough sleep * I don’t want to * My mother didn’t praise me as a child. * My mother was an over-eater. * All the women in my family are fat. * Quality Control – I’m a Catering Director of a Hotel, constantly around food, talking about food, trying new menu items, etc. My excuse is “it’s my job to taste the food” * The devil made me do it! * I’m big boned! * Most of the above! * All of the above!
Spread the word … NOT the icing,
