Asking for help and finding role models

Asking for help and finding effective resources isn't easy!  So many people love to give unsolicited advice and some just hunger to share their story. Sometimes it's scary to ask the "real" questions underneath the polite questions. 

One source of authentic, bluntly delivered, and effective info on the process and experience of rapid weight loss can be found in Freya Taylor's lovely book, Suddenly Skinny.  Here's an excerpt: 

Weight Loss Role Models
There really are people who have done it. They have lost 50 or 150 pounds and have kept it off. They have radically changed their lives.  Best of all, they know how they did it.

They can tell you:
  • The diet they used and why it worked for them.
  • The diets they tried that didn’t work for them.
  • What changed in them between being unsuccessful and successful.
  • What pitfalls to watch out for.
  • When you’re talking like an addict and need to have some sense beat into your head.
  • What it’s like being thin after being fat for a long time.  They can describe the joy, the freedom, the energy, the life they have access to.  They can inspire you like nothing else, until you have your own successes to keep you motivated.
  • Tips and tricks for filling snacks, strategies to make it through hungry days, warnings about whose diet salad dressing tastes like Vaseline, and how to really liven up a diet shake with some sugar-free salted caramel syrup.
  • How a thin person orders in a restaurant and avoids the buffet at cocktail parties.
  • That you’re not alone.  They can reassure you that the isolation, fear, anxiety, panic, or sadness you’re feeling is totally normal.
  • To believe in yourself.
  • That change is possible.
