    YES! IF I diet, THEN I will lose weight. It’s that first IF I seem to have a problem dealing with. Perhaps if I change it to IF I join WW, THEN I will lose weight to get that off my list; then change it again to IF I FOLLOW WW, Then I will lose weight.
    I like the logical link here and will try it and let you know! – AMF

    Anne Marie,
    Maybe you could try out a bunch of different scenarios. So, if snacking is a vice, change it to IF I’m hungry and it’s not mealtime, THEN I will drink 2 glasses of water, etc.
    Do keep us posted!

    What are your thoughts on the “when”/”then” statements? “When” is more deliberate and concrete than “if”, but does it imply a different meaning in a small way?
