*** IF YOU’VE TRIED EVERYTHING STOP READING NOW ***
When it comes to weight loss, how many times have you heard… or said, “I’ve tried everything.” Or, “I’ve always struggled with my weight.”
These oft-expressed sentiments are ubiquitous.
I question these statements because, absent a medical condition, if an obese and otherwise healthy person has tried everything, then why are they are still obese?
Dubious weight loss strategies can include using diet pills, fad dieting, yo-yo dieting or other quick-fixes or shortcuts. These methods fail as long-term solutions. Maybe “everything” includes these tactics, but if “everything” doesn’t include the approaches listed below, then you haven’t tried everything.
Does Everything Include…
- Educating yourself about nutrition?
- Changing your old, bad eating habits and embracing new habits?
- Practicing the new habits consistently?
- Regular exercise?
- Eating healthy, whole, nutritious foods… most of the time?
Identify Your Real “Struggle”
If an individual struggles with the effects of obesity, like the inability to tie ones’ shoes or becoming winded during mild exertion like walking two city blocks at a moderate pace, then I suppose it is accurate to state, “I struggle with my weight.”
But some use the term to imply victimhood, even though these individuals refuse to take prudent, corrective actions to maintain normal weight. Most people refuse to admit they struggle with obesity due to their inability and unwillingness to make the lifestyle changes necessary to lose weight.
Be true to yourself… so that you can help yourself by addressing your weaknesses.
You’re in charge!!!!!
