“Don’t try to lose weight, but try to become healthier instead. Trying to aggressively lose weight puts a lot of pressure on you, and it’s easy to feel like a failure if you don’t reach your imagined goal. Think in terms of better health. What does that second cookie do for you? How does that third glass of wine make your body better or healthier? What internal processes are happening when you overeat? How is your body handling the extra fat and sugar?” – Helen M. Ryan, Real World Weight Loss
Rather than focusing (solely) on your weight pay more attention to how you feel, how you look and how strong you become. Focus on leading a healthy lifestyle which means changing bad habits into good ones. Habits, good or bad, make you who you are. Having a healthy lifestyle means all parts of a person’s life are balanced physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally. And when it comes to a healthy diet, balance is the key to getting it right.
Happy Friday to you all! Eat smart and exercise regularly! Commit to change. Losing weight means improving your eating habits.
