I have finally come to realize that there is more to losing weight and getting in shape than exercising and cutting calories. I now see that weight loss has a lot to do with attitude.Everything we approach, should be approached with a positive attitude. Even if we are committed and dedicated we have to approach things with an "I can do this" attitude. Basically, I'm saying that what we are doing is a good thing, not a bad thing. Who am I talking to? I'm talking to myself, and of course anyone else who came into this like I did.
I decided to lose weight and get into shape like it was a terrible task or an almost impossible chore. I had a fighting, "Oh, woe is me" mentality. I refused to overeat, like it was a mortal sin to even go 5 calories over my range. I exercised like I was in a battle for my life. What I'm saying is, I wasn't enjoyed the trip working for the destination, (my goal weight). this was not working, I've decided to take it easy and do it calmly and rationally. After all, did I gain all this weight fighting and worrying to gain every pound? Of course not! So if I gained it casually, I will try to lose it casually (although faithfully), and not like some one has a gun to my head!
