Trying To Beat The System 

Losing weight takes dedication, focus and honesty. I know I am over simplifying. Yet I also think we tend to overthink the process. We can all come up with reasons/excuse why we can’t fit into our pants.
We know what it takes to get to where we want to be. We just don’t do it. Many of us try to fool ourselves by believing tomorrow will be different, this snack doesn’t count because it’s “healthy”, or I just need the perfect plan.

Many commit to their fitness goals every morning. We also need to be prepared for the potential hurdles that occur by the afternoon. Accountability is a necessary piece of the fitness puzzle.
May I suggest….

1. Setting a goal.

2. Write it down.

3. Tell someone.
I’m speaking from experience here. I get sneaky about how many handfuls of almonds I eat. I convince myself it doesn’t matter. I look for the loop holes too.
Spring is officially here! No more hiding behind big sweaters! Time to make it happen. 
What do you need to get honest about?

    This message is timely as I STRUGGLE with my weight control!! I have an elderly friend (a retired doctor) who just lost 20+ pounds. I complimented him and asked him how he did it (he has been at a higher weight than he wanted to be for years)….his answer:

    “It is a brilliant strategy… less than I want.”

    I say that to myself every day…not with much success, but still. It’s a good reminder. Maybe the warm weather will inspire me to be stronger than my excuses!! Thanks, Becky >

      Becky…That quote from your doctor pal really struck me! I have the appetite of a man. Maybe two! Lol! If I ate what I wanted, I would be in big trouble. Time to get comfortable in…”Eat less than I want”. Thank you, for my new mantra 👍😘
