Weight loss is a process and I get into trouble when I start thinking in absolutes. There is a lot of dogma when it comes to losing weight. Only eat this.. not that… Don’t eat past this time… Drink this every other day… When I start thinking that way, I know I am making myself rigid and that’s when the process starts to break down.
A process is fluid that requires flexibility. When I’m loose I can roll with the punches. I have an empowered stance, I can rise to the occasion and face challenges that are all around me. When I embrace the process for weight loss, I have a sense of agency because I believe that my actions really matter and will make an impact on my life.
To say it plainly, “I got this, and so do you.”
