How can I be real about weight loss? Weight management effects and controls a large majority of population today. Many of us are searching for the next best thing to help us in this area.When the reality is that our weight loss or gain is based on our own bodily needs. There is no quick fix and many times it has to do with more than what is put out there.
They tell us to eat less and exercise more. Or eat less carbs or some mediterranean diet. When I say they, I am talking about the experts. I am studying in this area as well. Taking the classes and reading the books. I will have a little better understanding though. Why? Because I also struggle with my weight.
My new goal is focusing on the size of my body instead of what that lying scale is telling me. I am tired of not fitting my clothes. Yes, yes, yes, I know how heavy I am plays a part in it too. But from what I’m learning, the more muscle I have will be the more excess I can lose. And let me tell you, I have a lot of excess.
So I had my mom come over and help me measure individual body parts and I returned to the gym. So July 10th was my first day back after a two-week long inability to get there. Partly cause my day job has been working us like dogs and partly because I didn’t want to go due to lack of results. More like I measured myself and got upset and had some of those moments. You know the ones. Where my self talk was not very nice. It controlled me for a couple of weeks.
Healthy and Happy
I have so many goals and so many new things coming into my life that I got a little distracted. So my goal for this page and area is to focus on weight loss and some of those physical habits that either keep us healthy and happy or put us into despair
I hope you will come with me as I work through these and that you can find something in my struggles that will help you in your everyday life. We know the experts tell us to focus on our eating habits. I believe them in this area. What we eat should fuel our bodies for our everyday activities. Another area to believe them is in exercise. We need it but for more than just weight loss.
There are other factors to do with weight loss too. Like stress and hormones. There really are so very many things to do with weight loss. It’s not just what we eat and how much we move. Those play a very large part in it too but it is not the only part of it. Now a days a huge role is stress and depression. Are you on or have you been on medication. Well there you go, you know exactly what I’m talking about.
Like I said there are a lot of things playing a role in our lives that effect our weight control. The over all goal is to be more healthy. Weight management will ultimately effect many other areas of our lives. Those are for another day.
