Stay Calm and Carry On
Friday, August 16, 2013
So I'm holding steady and continuing my daily exercise and healthy eating plan and I've honestly surprised myself. I've been battling my weight my entire life, I've either been on a diet or planning to be on a diet for years. I've made charts, graphs, bought gadgets and the latest exercise products all hoping for that thing that would work for me. But I know there's no magic to this process - the magic for me is trusting the process. I have a problem with consistency and I get bored easily. If I didn't see results quickly I was convinced the program was faulty, or I was faulty. But the truth is I was looking for a quick fix. It took a long time to put weight on so why would I think I can lose it all in three months? What is it they say? Acceptance is the beginning. So I need to shake things up now and then, making sure that food and exercise are interesting. But more importantly I just need to keep going and trust the process because it works...or it will eventually.
