Fatloser Day 18: Cause and Effect
Tuesday, January 21, 2014      22 comments

Simple message today: it's important to distinguish between cause and effect. All of us act on the basis of our core beliefs (the cause of our behaviour) so it's important to be aware of our core beliefs. Most of us would prefer to be ... Read more
Fatloser Day 17: Building Better Habits
Monday, January 20, 2014      25 comments

Siebold is today essentially reinforcing his theme that we need to use our brains to make our lives work. And that we can deliberately engineer the habits required for success at weight loss. He's already talked about monitoring emotions... Read more
Fatloser Day 16: Critical Thinking
Sunday, January 19, 2014      21 comments

"Critical thinking" doesn't sound attractive, particularly, does it? We don't much like critical people, sitting in judgment on us and telling us we're bad bad bad. And that it's our fault if we're fat. We like positive thinking. "Ever... Read more
Fatloser Day 15: Monitoring and Manipulating
Saturday, January 18, 2014      23 comments

Pretty simple message today, not too "in-your-face", and very useful. To practice mental toughness for the purposes of weight loss (or any other area of my life) I need to practice mind control. That means I need to: ... Read more
Fatloser Day 14: Addiction to the Approval of Others
Friday, January 17, 2014      17 comments

Once again, Siebold begins by acknowledging he knows he's probably offended a whole lotta people. Politics, religion and sex are "hot button" topics. It's risky to talk about any of 'em and probably the riskiest topic is . . . sex. (Worth not... Read more
Fatloser Day 13: The Weight Loss Topic Nobody Addresses
Thursday, January 16, 2014      33 comments

OK then. Were you offended at Day One when Siebold said if you're fat it's your fault? Were you offended at Day Four when Siebold said that fat people are bad parents? And were you offended at Day Twelve when Siebold said fat ... Read more
Fatloser Day 12: Growing Up Emotionally
Wednesday, January 15, 2014      72 comments

Siebold warns us: this is offensive. And he's probably right. He tells us that most adults need to grow up. Grow up emotionally. We're physically grown up. Intellectually grown up. But we're still whining like adolescents about h... Read more
Fatloser Day Eleven: Replacing
Tuesday, January 14, 2014      20 comments

Siebold builds on Day Ten (erasing and replacing old beliefs) but offering some provisional new beliefs. Some how-tos with respect to "replacing". Simple, right? Even if not easy. (And he knows it's not easy: he acknowledges that he him... Read more
Fatloser Day 10: Erasing and Replacing
Monday, January 13, 2014      20 comments

Losing weight is a linear process. You decide to lose weight, and then you develop the mental toughness to stick to the diet. Not easy. But simple. Really that's it. There is nothing mysterious, nothing complex about it: although there... Read more
Fatloser Day Nine: Preparation
Sunday, January 12, 2014      23 comments

Am I prepared to win? Yes. And preparation is what it takes, absolutely. [So sorry, long blog: but preparation is essential and I'm essentially reminding myself of that.] I want to maintain weight loss (that's the emotion, the... Read more
Fatloser Day Eight: Paying the Price
Saturday, January 11, 2014      22 comments

Am I willing to pay the price of success for weight loss/weight loss maintenance? Or am I still trying to negotiate? Siebold tells us that the only right answer is: "I'll do whatever it takes." And what it takes is 100% compliance. An ir... Read more
Fatloser Day Seven: Managing Attitude
Friday, January 10, 2014      18 comments

A persistent criticism of Siebold is that he's "emotionally manipulative": calling us bad parents if we're obese, and so on. But at the core of mental toughness is managing emotions. And what Siebold recognizes is that human beings will ... Read more
Fatloser Day Six: Eliminating Excuses
Thursday, January 09, 2014      22 comments

Steve Siebold shows a softer side today, at least initially, as he describes his relationship with his long-time mentor Bill Gove. Gove guided Siebold through his apprenticeship as a public speaker, and promised he would always be "right beside... Read more
Fatloser Day Five: Controlling Emotions
Wednesday, January 08, 2014      24 comments

Siebold begins today with an implicit apology: he knows he will have fired people up and enraged them by saying they're "bad parents" if they don't model mental toughness for their kids. Essentially what he's done is illustrate for us the power... Read more
Fatloser Day Four: Expect Suffering
Tuesday, January 07, 2014      21 comments

Another tough message from Steve Siebold (and keep in mind: I'm just paraphrasing, his delivery is priceless!!): "Weight loss isn't easy and success requires suffering. We have to expect to experience pain, doubt and emotional turbulence... Read more
