Another form of self sabotage is what Curtis Medina, a Milton based personal trainer and canfitpro instructor, calls an all or none attitude. People equate improvement with restriction and that fosters negativity. They also tend to concentrate on one facet of their health their food intake and neglect everything else, such as exercise and overall nutrition. When they get hungry, they pack it in.

During her university years, the Milton, Ont., resident struggled with disordered eating and poor body image. She was obsessed with calorie counting and fanatical about the number on the scale. By her own admission, she often restricted her food intake to gain a false sense of control. Then when her body couldn't take it any longer, she started binge eating. In the process, she gained 25 pounds and felt completely unhealthy.
"With dieting, when you want to increase your chances of success, have a small change and get your body used to it," adds Medina. "Then have another small change and have your body get used to it. If you do those small things, you're not going to sabotage because you'll only have positive behaviour patterns. It actually becomes a lifestyle. You'll actually want to do it."
Hayes urges people to look at their motivation to diet. For instance, is it focused on losing a certain amount within a set period, or is it about developing a healthy diet that will also help to lose weight and keep it off? Next, they should examine their eating and exercising patterns, what they do when temptation strikes, and how they reward themselves because "everyone has to be their own cheering section."

They also neglect to think through the resources and supports they need to meet their objectives, then give up when an obstacle gets in the way. They haven't prepared for the change psychologically and so, subconsciously, look for ways to abort their mission.

In the end, it all comes down to proper planning something Peck says fails to happens every January when the hordes rush into the gym looking for a quick fix. To combat sabotage, she says, take a hard look at your lifestyle. Can it handle change? Have you addressed any outstanding emotional or psychological issues? Did you set realistic long and short term goals? Failing to plan spells disaster, she says, so be sure to start out on the right foot.
