Weight Loss: Its Not About the Numbers, Its Your Approach!
Today obesity, diabetes, and heart disease run through us at epidemic levels. Why? The answer lies not in thethousands of different kinds of diet, weight loss and workout programs offered, the answer lies in the approach. But, no one wants to talk about that. Do you ever wonder whythat is?
Do we not want to know, or could it have something to do with the doctor's and those in the fitness industry not wanting to explain the best approachto us? Maybe they don't even know the right way themselves? But, I think deep down we want and needtoo know.
"While exercise and eating guidelines are based on goodscientific principles, they do not go along with human natureor common sense. Recent history is telling us this; we are better off with encouraging the mediocre people who are willing toinclude exercise in their daily lives, rather than cramming guidelines down throats that are far beyond the reach of the majority of people. In the end, keeping things simple combinedwith support usually works better." -- Greg Ryan
From his e-book: "Just MOVE it," www.resolutions.bz
Over the years most of us who are out of shape and want to lose a few pounds and feel a little better about ourselves, developed many different behaviorstoward exercise and food. Some are good ones, but most are just barriers we have built in our minds. I guessyou could also chalk it up to pure laziness.
However, the bottom line is we are going to continue down the path of destruction until someone comes up with a plan to help people deal with the reasons behind such behaviors.
No pill will do it long term, no eight minute ab's routine will concur the patterns; the only thing it will take is introspection. But, do we want to hear that? Maybe, that is just too painful to even think about right now.
Do you mean I will have to take a good long look at myself? Maybe so. At the end of the day, you are going to have to ask yourself, "Do I deal with it now or do I deal with the consequences later? Because that's really what it comes down to. Face the truth on your terms today, or face the reality on life's terms down the road in a hospital bed.
I chose to deal with it now.
So where is the magic? It's not in the pills or programs being fed to us today and it's also not found so much in the numbers on an exercise chart, the amount of weight you lift, or the miles on a treadmill.
Our success lies in how willing we are to deal with the roots of the unwanted behaviors. Figuring out what truly motivates us and developing a great support system.
Do we really want to continue to put a bandage on a bleeding artery?Or do we get serious and do some mental surgery that takes care of the weight problem once in for all.
