Why is it so hard to keep our new year’s resolutions to lose weight? I explore this question in this episode in which I also take a tour through the various schools of psychology and show how each one would explain why you have trouble keeping your promise to yourself to lose weight (or stay out of debt, or stop smoking).
- Concept Map – In t his video I refer to the concept mapping program as “MeadMap”. Well, the company “CoMapping” purchased MeadMap. However, the program still looks and runs the same. You’ll see the map below, but you can see it full size by clicking here: Losing Weight and the Schools of Psychology. In addition, feel free to contact me (click on the Contact Michael page to the left) if you would like me to send you a copy of the map which you can import into a MeadMap account and alter it any way you wish.
