Thank you for posting your thoughts on these areas. I have read the article and listened to your YouTube post.
It is quite clear that everyone has different opinions, thoughts, understanding and definitely experiences. I understand that what works for me does not necessarily work for someone else. How I read a 'rule' or 'myth' is not how someone else reads it. That 8 glasses for me may be gallons for someone else. That 4000 calories may be 1 pound for me but 5 pounds for someone else. That pain for me may be additional sweating and holding my arms up for 20 more counts but bloody, bruising and joint damage for someone else.
I've only lost 40 pounds since October, focusing on my interpretation of rules and myths and how they have worked and not worked for me. I appreciate all your research, learning experience and success at testing the rules and myths, that's great and will be very helpful for those you "life coach".
Unfortunately my 'new me' and my journey feels sabotaged today. I DO felt better about myself. I now enjoy moving around, participating in events, looking at my Smile that does not look like I am in pain, rather I look joyous & happy and am wearing jewelry and clothes that no longer look like they are choking me. I may be an exception but I WILL continue to drink my water, go to Zumba and painfully sweat, reduce calories and maintain calorie burning activity, appreciate a leaner body even if it IS saggy and wrinkly and enjoy alternatives to Hoagie Rolls and Pizza Crust carbs. They are not my "rules" nor are they my "myths".
Thanks for asking for our thoughts and reading them.
