Doing Things Backwards

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

I've been thinking alot recently and decided that I might be doing things backwards. Rather than trying to lose weight to be healthy, maybe I should be trying to be healthy and I'll lose weight. There is a distinction. For me, when I try to lose weight I tend to do some unhealthy things that don't agree with me like going low carb, restricting too much, focusing on calories of food rather than nutrient value etc. So I decided that I'm going to forget trying to lose weight, I'm going to work on eating healthy and getting in some exercise every day. If I don't lose weight but my blood work comes back fine and I can walk without getting out of breath I'll be happy. One of my goals is to make sure that I eat closer to my TEE (Total Energy Expenditure), which is surprisingly hard for me because it's so many more calories than I'm used to eating. I realized that I've been consistently eating below my BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) which probably explains why it has been so hard for me to lose weight and maintain a loss. I'm willing to commit to taking care of myself even if I'm overweight and to learn to be happy and take care of this body.
