How I lost 100 pounds with Gestalt weight loss

I've been asked a lot about how I lost 100 pounds. To achieve this weight loss, I used a combination of "mind over platter" food swaps and diet tricks. The cumulative effect has been gestalt. No, I didn't sneeze, LOL. Gestalt just means that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Little steps have netted a much larger than imagined result. 

Beating a problem like obesity doesn't require a few huge "once and for all" changes but many little ones. I recently blogged about how I lost 100 pounds by getting in denial. Not denying the growing problem of my obesity but self-denial. Weight loss requires exercising self-control regularly, in a lot of little ways.

My willpower may not always triumph. I don't always exercise as I should. I sometimes eat the wrong things. (More on what to do when than happens later.) Sometimes I choose not to diet. That's part of how I lost 100 pounds too. However, I'm making better food swaps overall. And that's why obesity is a thing of the past. 

Are you trying to lose weight? You can do it! Keep making those little food swaps and you'll win at weight loss. Trust the Gestalt process, one day at a time!
