The process of changing a life-style is more important than reaching a goal or measuring a performance. -Theodore Isaac Rubin
Do we have the cart before the horse?
Aren't we all about losing weight and getting to our goal?
Nope - not if we want to maintain the loss.
I would venture to guess that our life-styles cause us the problems we have to face. Things like:
Eating late at night.
Snacking in front of the TV.
Not drinking enough water.
Failing to exercise consistently.
Not enough sleep.
Celebrations (for everything).
We love to cook and bake so we cook and bake things that we can't stay out of.
Traditions like birthday cake, ice cream when it's hot outside, pancakes on Saturday morning.
Grocery shopping when hungry and without a list.
Eating too much processed food.
Halloween candy, Valentine's Day candy, Christmas candy, Birthday candy, etc.
If we partake, or take a day off, or splurge, or whatever for each event, birthday, family cook-out, baby shower, wedding shower, office party, celebration, and/or holiday festivities, can we really expect to do very well?
Changing our lifestyles will go a long way toward changing the number on the scale. How are you doing with this? What life-style change do you need to make?
