When it comes to our future success, there are two ways to look at life.
We can feel powerless. We believe life just happens to us. It’s out of our hands, so we sit back, play the role of the victim and react to everything.
Or, we can feel powerful. We believe our choices make a difference in what happens to us. We chose to act rather than react to people and situations.

I prefer focusing on positive outcome and expecting success.

This is the fatalistic mentality of many countries in the east (and some in the West) and the opportunistic mentality taught to those in America.

The Fatalistic mentality is : it's already written - you're path has been paved for you. Accept was is already written.

The Opportunistic mentality is: you carve your own path. You create your own outcome.

Both mentalities have their merits but I believe in the opportunistic mentality more. It works for me. I know others from both Ireland and India with the other mentality and they are happy too!

I also notice that people who are more religious belong in the fatalistic group.

Group Leader


The purpose of this group is to help others who are dealing with the same issues as me. Since I lost a significant amount of weight and kept it off, I believe I am in the position to be able to offer hope to others. I hope that by showing what works for me, I will be able to help you lose weight with no complicated formulas, without exercise, and most important without feeling hungry. My intention is to share with you that it is absolutely doable.
