What's your secret?

Sunday, November 18, 2012

People always ask me now "What's your secret?" when I tell them about my weight loss. I usually think that is amusing.

People think it's some kind of magic pill or something that will make it all go "Poof!"

I have to disappoint you. There is no secret.

It's like this scene in one of my favorite movies, Kung Fu Panda:

Po gets the DragonScroll which is supposed to give him unlimited power, only to find it is blank. He later learns the meaning. There IS no secret ingredient!

It's just you.

You had it all the time.

It was so simple, I stumbled over it for years.

It's just that. eating sensibly, exercising, and keeping motivated.

And, it's all you wonderful people who keep encouraging me.

I can't do it alone, it's all of you and we will make it together.

So that's the secret, the secret is, there is no secret. So enjoy yourself and have fun!

    SO true! We are always looking for the easy way out, but the tried and true, "just LIVE WITHIN REASON" is what actually works! It's hard, it's a roller-coaster at times, it's sweaty, it's bloody and it takes everything we have. But it's worth it!

    I laughed when I read this. I've been going to the doctor's every month for high blood pressure (which is now under control) and every time I weigh in of course I've lost more weight and now it's really beginning to show. They too are asking "what's my secret?" which is kind of sad. My doctor asked me what I was doing and I said "diet and exercise" and she said "really? that's it?" and I said yes, that's it and I could tell she had a hard time believing me. She said "well keep on doing what you're doing, whatever it is, it sure is working!"
