Weight loss. Why is it so difficult to keep the fat away?
With all of our greatness, there are 31 countries doing a better job with longevity and if you factor in quality of life after age 60, we are no doing so well.
While it is so easy to become overweight and not so easy to master weight loss, you should know that life threatening risks are a lot higher when you are overweight.
With so many confusing, often contradictory opinions about weight loss, what and who can you trust?
Trust yourself. You already know you have a problem. That is the first step.
You need a goal which means an outcome with a deadline. That is step 2.
For example: I WILL decrease my waistline by 4 inches within 6 months.
NOW! IN DETAIL! Write down why you must achieve this goal.
What pain will it cause you emotionally to remain overweight?
What new pleasures will you see and feel when you accomplish your goal?
What will people be telling you when you look thinner?
How will that make you feel?
NOW TAKE ACTION!
There are countless plans, systems, processes and now even surgery is an accepted strategy.
Hopefully you are aware of the inherent risks of surgery.
Ultimately, change has to come from within you. You must decide that weight loss is “a must” and not “a should”.
There will be challenges with any approach. It helps to have support. It helps to have feed back. It helps to pay attention to how food makes you feel. And how you feel when you are drawn to certain foods. Getting a more permanent weight loss solution begins with you, not looking for someone or something to make it happen for you but deciding you will change.
Once you have decided, it helps to know how things work.
Find the right fuel mix for you. Pay attention to how you feel. Pay attention to results you are getting. Do whatever it takes to safely meet your goals. Enjoy your new life!
