I stopped into a medical weight loss clinic today. They lost me at "The first 3 days you eat nothing but raw green veggies and red meat." What? Why is it that even MEDICAL weight loss sounds like a gimic?
It would be so much easier if someone would just make all my meals for me and put them in the fridge labeled by day. On tuesday I could just go get the tuesday bag and eat from it until there was no more food. I wouldn't have to make decisions or do any calculations. Someone else can do all the calculating and figuring and make sure I'm getting enough of everything and all I have to do is consume in order.
Well, since I don't have a personal chef and I live with a man who has the pallette of a 4 year old, I really don't see that as a viable option. But it's nice to dream. On days like today when there just aren't enough hours to do everything and my back is spasming it would be so nice to kick back and let someone else do the work.
But losing weight is hard work. And really, it should be. I don't like it but dedication means you stick through it no matter what and that strength of spirit is needed to maintain weight loss. If losing weight was easy we would all yo-yo all the time. So, as nice as it would be to just kick back and let someone do it for me. I suppose it's better if I do the work myself
