If you have wanted to lose ten pounds for ten years and a diet finally helps you do it, you might well assume you have accomplished your goal. But your goal actually isn't to lose ten pounds. Many people (even you?) have lost ten pounds many times! The goal is to lose ten pounds and keep the weight off. Dieting doesn't lead to weight loss that endures. For this we must join a change in behavior with a change in the way we think and feel-and in order to change the way we think and feel, we need to change our mindsets. When we are working on truly adaptive goals-ones that require us to develop our mindsets-we must continually convert what we learn from behavioral changes into changes in our mindsets.
