Why make assumptions?

Sunday, April 07, 2013

I really am discouraged by the lack of information that is available for those of us that are doing all the "right" things but are not seeing progress. I don't care what anyone says...for me I want to see the scale move in the "loss" direction. I have come to believe that the changes that are suggested are cookie cutter and do not apply to me. I get the same suggestions over and over and I always wonder when I read the suggestions...why do people that offer these suggestions assume that these changes have not already been made. I think it is unrealistic that a person is never going to drink a soda, eat a chip, eat ice cream or sweets snacks ever again in their lives. If this type of lifestyle was sustainable there would not be a need to have websites like these and we would not read the stories/blogs about people "getting back on track" etc. I must admit, I am a bit bitter and i believe that there is so much information that is not well understood. So, I will be moving on with with my lifestyle and incorporating some peer reviewed research and figuring out how to make the changes that are appropriate for me, not doing the gimmicks that I believe keep people not only fat but unhealthy.

    I hear you - it can be frustrating sometimes! However you are the only one who knows your body and the changes that you've made to lose weight and get healthier - so please don't let other people's suggestions get you discouraged.

Those people probably mean well, and are looking for a way to encourage you to keep on working and not give up. So please keep on taking good care of yourself and doing the things that YOU find are working well for you. *hug*
