My 1st question is: I am following the Nutrisystem diet and have a question concerning popcorn? Many thanks for any answer. My 2nd question... Copied from Yahoo Health:.

A watched potor get off the scale?.

Is this you, or do you know someone, who cannot lose weight even though they seem to be doing everything right?.

Imagine going from not exercising at all to exercising four or five times a week, and from eating a high calorie junk food diet to eating a really clean and reduced calorie diet, and still not losing any significant weight bummer - right? And not uncommon, I see this a lot..

In my opinion, it's just one more obvious incident of mind over body, self-sabotage, and justification for working on mental fitness as well as physical fitness..

A conversation with one of my students/clients highlights my point exactly; she said to me, ever since we have been working out together my diet is good, I am drinking a lot of water, my clothes fit looser, and I am happier until I get on the scale - and I see that almost nothing, number-wise, has changed.

She gets on the scale, she gets disappointed, and what happens next is all too predictable: she sabotages her progress, and her happiness..

She dives into work, stops exercising and watching her diet, and watching the scale. After a week or so people started commenting on how good she looks, and they ask her what shes doing to lose weight..

When she does get on the scale again, now a week off of her fitness program (and her obsession with the scale), and four weeks after we started training together, she sees that she has in fact lost a chunk of weight..

Her body has been allowed, without the negative mental interference of obsessing about the numbers on the scale, to function naturally and drop weight, as anyones body eventually will when caloric intake is reduced and caloric expenditure is increased..

As soon as she took her mind off of the problem, which she saw as, the numbers on the scale arent moving fast enough, her body responded to the healthy actions she had been taking..

This is the dieters version of: a watched pot never boils. When we watch the pot we are typically focusing on how long it's taking and it's lack of progress. For most of us, the act of watching the pot is an indication of impatience, and lack of trust, which quickly turns into, this isnt working and, I quit!.

We create (or contribute to) an ongoing cycle of failure..

What we need for success is a positive outlook with optimistic expectation, but it's hard to do after years of failed diet and fitness attempts..

You can however, undo the negative self-fulfilling prophecy through positive affirmations and greater awareness. Affirmations will recondition your thinking, and a heightened awareness will allow you to not take actions that sabotage your progress..

Stay off the scale; you only have control over the actions that you take, not how quickly the results come. And unless you are from another planet, it's unlikely that, on a physical level, your body is much different from everyone elses. It will respond positively to increasing your exercise and reducing your caloric intake if you just trust, give it time, and stop sabotaging yourself..

Peace and Happy Trails to you,.

Thank you!! What a great article! If I have a week where I don't lose I skip getting weighed the next week. I have no intention of stopping exercise orNutrisystemand there is no way that you can eat the healthy low calorie food and doing exercise as we are and not lose or get healthy...

Jeanie, I think Pam and I have the same brand of scales. She was telling how they would not move. So she picked up some shampoo and weighed, then weighed without and her weight dropped. This has worked twice for me...
