To keep myself mentally awake is one of the cred in the Boy Scout oath. The dieter must keep themselves mentally awake. Diet obstacles are around every corner. The mind thinks and the heart believes. The heart is where our beliefs reside. There we believe that the diet is good for us and why it is good for us. The heart renews the mind. It takes the beliefs and translates them into action. We ponder on things in our mind. What comes out of our mouths are products of our heart and what is racing around in our minds. Mind renewal to our core beliefs about everything important comes from the heart. Feeding the heart with good information generates our beliefs. What we think about can affect our hearts usually in negative ways but with renewed thinking in positive ways. Keeping mentally alert is realizing that we are thinking poorly concerning our dieting endeavors and making the necessary adjustments. When you are beginning to think that dieting is hard and you want to quit, go to your heart and remember why you are dieting and how important it is to you. Don’t let momentary anxiety and depression get you down. Love the diet.
