Ending the insanity!!!!

Thursday, May 23, 2013

Well, life goes on, and the weight stays on. I have officially decided to end the insanity. I am so tired of being frustrated and uncertain about whether or not I'm doing this right. I have wondered over and over, too much exercise?, too little calories? I'm just plain tired of trying to find the key that will open the door to an easier ride through this weight loss trip. I've discovered there isn't one. So, I will change my focus. No more searching. I will from this point on focus on healthy. In my food choices, in my amount of exercise. In my focus. I know it seems like a cop out, but I need a break and I'm taking it! emoticon emoticon

    Its no copout. It is an entirely healthy was of getting rid of the stress that was ruining your sanityand your weight loss. Not focusing on what the scale says but on what is healthy for you to do and doing that is the healthiest of choices you can make. And don't be surprised if as you are learning to live more and more healthy that the weight starts to come off anyway. emoticon plan!

    It's no cop out. Healthy is the only way to go. There is no magic wand out there to transform us. Total restrictions make me just want to rebel and break away from most diets that I've tried. I am interested in feeling good while I'm living - and endless worrying just doesn't cut it! Eat and exercise sensibly. Enjoy both - but neither to excess.

    It's easy to get hung up on micro managing every aspect of living healthy. Focusing on healthy will make it easier and help you enjoy the journey.

    My prediction is that your quest for healthy will lead to weightloss and an abundance of energy. That is what I did!

    Not a copout at all. This is no a; it is a lifestyle with no beginning and no end. It is our LIFE. LIVE IT! Baby steps toward being fit and healthy is the very best emoticon you could give and unwrap for yourself each day!

    I agree. Focusing healthy then losing weight is much better. Maybe for me too it's important right now to just focusing on health right now as my scale has not moved for 3 weeks.

    I understand. You will be much better off than many who eat so little to diet that they are hurting their body.
