It was so easy to declare that I was going on a diet. One day, the thought just came to me. Being the ever optimist, I decided to forgo sweets, salty food, and oily dishes in favor of green leafy veggies, fruits, and lots of water. However, weeks into this special diet, I began to feel restless. I felt like a junkie who tried and tried to give up on drugs, in this case food, only to binge again after a moment of weakness.
Then, I realized on thing, committing to your diet is one of the hardest things you can do. Sure it is easy at first, but what they say is true. Commitment is the art of sticking to your plan, long after the feeling has left you, and in my case, I am still having a difficult time doing my end of the bargain. However, I am not a quitter, so whatever happens, I am committing to commit.
