Be a successful 'Diet Failure'
Diet failure is all too common because the truth of the matter is that diet's really don't work unless you want to gain weight in the long run.
So I want you to throw out the window that you are to blame when diets fail because when you do that you'll open up to a new possibility that side-steps all those diet cons. I know this may be difficult to believe, but being failing at diets might actually lead to your success. I say this especially because there are so many diet problems that we seem to attribute to our lack of willpower when that really isn't the case. You heard me right!
I don't keep weight loss statistics for people who have gone through my Mind over Fatter program because weight loss alone does not tell me that a person has been been successful. For a diet to really have worked, it has to have passed all 10 of these criteria. If a diet hasn't been able to accomplish those, then in my book it is a diet failure and you are NOT.
Nor do I collect weight loss photos. I know... that's probably very unwise because if there is ever anything guaranteed to get people to buy your products it's those incredible weight loss stories with accompanying pics!
But at Mind over Fatter success is so much more than just weight loss - it's health-gain. And not just physical health, because spiritual and mental health are every bit (and sometimes more) as important to light and vibrant living as well as health. And that is way more important for me to help you achieve than just being thin!
Sometimes, what looks like a diet failure to outsiders counts as success for Mind over Fatter pilgrims because once you've freed yourself from the 'success measure' of weight loss only - then success can look different for each person as these three motivational stories illustrate:

I got the link to your website from the SBI website forum and decided to take a peek. Excellent information here. I especially like the page about sleep and weight , as well as the info on international weight research . Keep up the good work. I love your bright, cheery logo :)

I really love the idea of doing some 'head stuff' tweaking instead of dieting. This is a GREAT website, loaded with unusual information.
I LOVE this website. It's really thought-provoking, it's given me ideas about dieting and weight loss that I would never have contemplated. It makes such sense in a world where much about dieting doesn't. Bravo! I also loved your quizzes. I will be a repeat visitor. PS I have signed up for your free Joy-Filled Body Tips.

I am a university-bound teenager from the United States. Two years ago I was diagnosed with anorexia, a battle that eventually found me in the hospital.Dieting has robbed me of too much time. I found this website by chance. I've spent a lot of time browsing through articles and reading stories. It has changed my attitude and made me want to be MY ideal weight, not someone else's. Thank you to all the contributors and readers of Mind over Fatter. I deeply appreciate everything you do.(abridged by Cari)

I spent a little time looking at your website and I think it's fabulous! It's so good to see a SENSIBLE approach to weight loss on the web. Well done! Katherine -Australia
It's easy in our society today to feel that our value is determined by the number on the scale. I am encouraged to change my mind so I can love myself for who I am not how much I weigh. Thank you so much for your website. It is such an inspiration to me!
Thank you! Rachel, USA
