Our expert says:
Because you are the only person on earth who can decide to stick to your healthy eating and exercise plan, you need to sit down and analyse why you cannot persevere with this programme. If you are turning to food for comfort or if food is a crutch to get you through the day and there are underlying psychological problems you are grappling with, then it would be advisable to consult a clinical psychologist (your gp can refer you). The psychologist will be able to assist you to identify what is making you so demotivated when you would like to look great for your important event at the end of the year and help you with coping strategies. One can also purchase motivational tapes from organisations like www.innertalk.com or www.motivators.co.za , but at the end of the day, you will have to take the decision to stick to your diet and your exercise programme to achieve success.
