You can't have it both ways

Wednesday, October 09, 2013

Maintaining a healthy weight is hard. It takes a concerted effort EVERY single day. It means doing things you may not alwyays want to do but you do them anyway because you know it's the only way. If you continue to kid yourself and make a half hearted effort you will NEVER get there. If Doritos, ice cream, Little Debbie snack cakes, etc are more important than living the life you deserve then you will never succeed. If watching television is more important than exercising you will never get there. If eating the tempting treat your coworker brought in is more imporant you will never get there. Life will always get in the way. There will always be a birthday, holiday, vacation, etc. If you want it bad enough you will do whatever it takes. You will shop weekly and purchase the healthy foods your body needs, you will not under any cirucmstances purhase your trigger foods. If this means someone else needs to do the grocery shopping then so be it. You will plan your meals and stick to the plan every day. You won't stray. You will plan the occasional treat and you will enjoy it 100% and then you will continue with your plan. You will pay for your gas as the pump to avoid going in to the store where you may be tempted to purchase garbage, chemical laiden foods. You will go to bed at 7:30 at night if this what you need to do to avoid eating. You will exercise most everyday even when you don't want to. You will stop lying to yourself and accept that if you want it bad enough you will do this EVERY day. No starting and stopping. You're in. End of story. If you're not willing to do this there really is no point in 'trying'. You only going to perpetuate your misery. Accept it and quit whining or stop kidding yourself.
