This is not an easy goal. Losing weight is difficult and requires some attention. Remember why you want to do it and make a plan for how you will do it. I know how that sounds – it sounds obvious but anyone who has tried to lose weight knows it’s not. This is hard
Sometimes you don’t want to have to think about tracking, weighing, and measuring food. Sometimes the situation makes it impossible to do those things. Sometimes you just want to be like (what it seems as though) everyone else can do and just eat and drink whatever you want. The truth is everyone is different. For me, I will never be like those people I will always have to think about this.
I am the kind of person who will always have to be mindful about food. It doesn’t matter that I’ve reached goal – it’s just the way it is for me. That’s ok. I’d rather face the truth and be honest than kid myself. I can do this, and so can you. If you’re reading these words right now, listen to me, “You can do this. Believe in yourself and make some important changes to your lifestyle.”
Limit sugar (yes you can still eat a piece of cake or a scoop of ice cream but don’t overdo it). Start to move more. Find something you enjoy doing and get some activity – you’ll feel better about your situation. Track the foods you eat, and when you eat, and why you eat. That makes a huge difference. If you make these changes, you will begin to lose weight and feel better about your health.
Losing weight doesn’t make all your problems go away. What it does do, is improve your health. You are worth the effort and I can only hope that you believe me. My last words for the night, are that I hope you are happy on your journey. Happiness helps a lot.
