These are my Lifestyle Changes (LCs):
done: fish oil
working on supplements
working on food
After supplements and food will be exercise, I have acquired Leslie Sansone tapes and downloaded free Tai Chi lessons, so I am also working towards heading towards the exercise. I am using No S Diet to work on food and take back control, it's an excellent place to start. I have a supplements system set up and in use and am about 60% faithful. So the other pans are in the fire, some are even well along; I just can't do everything at once and it'd be foolish to try.
I feel 200% better, plus I've lost 36lbs and kept it off for 1.25 years. Prior to LCs, I gained every year an average of 12lbs a year. So instead of being 36 lighter, right now I'd be be the 36lbs heavier, plus 12, plus 4 = I'd be 52lbs heavier without working the LCs. YES, it's worth it.
Make a list of the LCs needed in your life, then identify which one is most impactful to your health, and concentrate only on that single one. As you keep going in SP you'll make inroads into the others, anyway, as you go (like I described above). But keep your focus on #1.
Then throw away the list, and make babysteps for the #1 LC. Concentrate on BS1 of LC1, and keep stepping til LC1 is done. Then tackle the next LC.
I immediately knew with NO question NO doubt for me the #1 most impactful to my health was sleep (#1 is different for everyone, goes without saying). It was also the hardest. I had about a million babysteps to overcome; had to reconfigure my life and re-engineer how I lived, in many respects, give up things and work through it emotionally.
That's fine; nothing wrong with that if it's the hardest! It takes what it takes. Just do it. The scale moved without me changing ANYTHING else, once I got consistent sleep.
Your body is your earth suit, your overalls that cloaks your spirit and allows you to remain here. There's only one, and when it has a hole or a malfunction, you're in trouble. So is it worth it? Oh yeah. Literally can't live without it, at least not here on this earth.
If you are talking about Clean Eating lifestyle change only, do the same principle: make a list of baby steps.
