Well, I DID go back to school, and I DID become a Nutritionist. But nothing changed.
I did now know exactly what I should be eating, how much, and when, but I still found myself at the end of every day, on the couch, in front of the TV once everyone else was in bed, stuffing my face with potato chips or M & Ms (or more often both).
To be totally honest, it was embarrassing. It was humiliating. And it was the most hopeless I’d ever felt. I was a Nutritionist for goodness sake! And I still couldn’t get control over what I was putting in my mouth.
What was wrong with me???
Then, I came across a book in a strange little second-hand bookstore that changed my life and finally helped me lose that 20 pounds and keep it off for good.
It wasn’t a diet book. It didn’t even have anything to do with health. It was a book about something called “neuro-linguistic programming.”
I know, big words. Basically, it was a book about speaking the language of your brain. It was like an operating manual for your brain.
And that’s when a light bulb went on for me.
Reading that book suddenly made it so clear to me ...
