They Stole It!

They stole it!


(Lori Photo Bombing my sign - She didn't steal it...I don't think?)

I guess I cannot blame them. I knew better but decided to take a chance.  You guys know how when something is easy to do you are more likely to do it?  And when something is harder to do it you are less likely to do it?  Well I made it too easy for them.  Here’s what happened and what we can learn about human nature to help us lose weight. (After all there is a weight loss and health lesson in everything!)


We are holding a weight loss contest that starts next week.  (details here if you want to join, over $3,900 in prizes)  I had an extra yard sign in my car that I hadn’t put out yet.  So last night when I was unloading our Lowes supplies for some house projects I decided to put it out.  I wanted it to be visible well so I put it about a foot away from the sidewalk.  (you already know what happened don’t you?)  Often I put the sign a about 5-6 feet away from the sidewalk and it had stood the test of time.  This time the extra convenience was too tempting.  Someone took the sign.  On the eve of Easter Sunday no less!  I violated a well understood rule of human nature. 


If a temptation is easy to do we are more likely to do it!


We talk about this often in our program.  If the good and healthy food is easier to grab you are more likely to do it.  If the less healthy food is easier to grab you will grab it more often. 


So I’ll leave you with a question…


In what areas are you violating this rule, making healthy choices harder and unhealthy choices easier?


I have a tough time getting mad at the thief because I made it too easy for him.  Plus we live near the most happening biker bar in bloomfield. Alcohol and quality decision making don’t exactly go together, but I suppose that is another post for another day! 


Happy Easter Sunday! I hope and pray you have a blessed and thoughtful day!
