This week has been good. I've been making smart decisions and I'm feeling the strength and will power to move forward and move beyond the where I'm at right now. As each good day passes, I can see the string of days getting longer and my attitude becoming more solidified.
However, as I read through the blogs, I find a lot of people struggling over different methods of weight loss. There are those where counting points has become frustrating or limiting, there are others where the increase of exercise isn't working and others where eating practically nothing hasn't budged the scale. Levels of frustration seem to be hitting an all time high and it doesn't need to be that way.
I'm in this same boat with all of you. I want to lose weight. No doubt. And I don't want to come off as though I know all the answers because I don't. I'm far from it. I've never done WW, South Beach, Beverly Hills, Atkins, Pritikin or any other formalized diet plan. But I have found a formula which seems to be working for me and I'm happy about that. I want each and everyone to have the same good fortune, or whatever it is, to find something that works for you.
I know there isn't one plan which will work for everyone but it seems as though there's a lot of over thinking and over obsessing that's happening. It almost seems like the stress of losing weight, making this "life style change", the eating healthy is getting the best of people. Let's all just take a deep breath and relax about it. We, of course, all have our struggles, our frustrations, the mental gymnastics we go through, our past we deal with but just remember, the tighter you hold on to something the harder it is to let it go.
