To be honest, with you and more importantly myself, I haven’t really cared about my weight the last couple months. Well, I guess cared isn’t really true, because I do care. It’s the acting on it that’s been the challenge for me. I haven’t gone totally overboard because my core diet is a good one. I eat pretty well, a healthy portion of veggies, very little sweets and generally lean proteins, but regardless of that, I’ve gained weight over the last 8 weeks or however long it’s been.
My pants are a little tighter. My shirts fit a little more snug. The second chin is coming back. I don’t like it. I need to get back to the exercise because that and moderation on my food intake is key. For me, that’s the combination that works. Exercise and eating in smaller portions.
So, I sit and ask myself, what is it going to take to get me back to being more conscious? What is it going to take to get me motivated again? What’s it going to take to flip that switch in my brain that tells me, no, don’t eat that second piece. Yes, go for that walk. Remember how much you enjoy it?
My advice to myself is this. Make good choices. Think about the consequences. Be kind to yourself. Don’t be overwhelmed by the big picture, break it down into small pieces and acknowledge even the smallest of victories.
What’s your advice to me?
