Slow progress, but learning
Monday, August 05, 2013
I am making really slow progress on my weight loss, but I am learning some lessons.
Lesson #1: Two steps forward, one step backward. It seems like this is true of everything in life! Just learn to live with it.
Lesson #2: Be persistent. If progress happens at the rate of two steps forward, one step backward, that is still one step forward. It is still progress! So keep going.
Lesson #3: protein and produce - it's a winning combination. Choose unrefined food, as close to natural state as possible.
Lesson #4: it is possible to cut down on refined carbs and sweet. Really. You are strong, and there are better things in life.
Lesson #5: the best things in life are not food. Really. Rest, exercise, loved ones, good books, fulfilling things to do. We all need enough food, but not more than enough. LIfe goes on without bagels and sweets.
