When we talk about choosing kind versus right, there are moments of reflection when being kind requires an internal lens. Why do we seem to put ourselves last?
What has worked for me was a combination of diet, exercise and eating healthy, along with the learned behaviours to help change my negative thinking. These changes helped me to forgive past mistakes, take a new outlook on how I view myself and also create a level of forgiveness when I don't make the best food choices. Once I stopped making excuses for what I choose to eat, the eating habits became easier to change. Once I ceased making silly excuses for not going to the gym, I realised that the physical activity made me feel better and helped me to create more productive thoughts. It is a cycle that is fascinating to uncover for yourself.
I am not a personal trainer, I am not a nutritionist, and I am not a weight loss professional. What I am is a guy who will share my journey with anyone who is also struggling with weight or body issues. Those who have tried multiple times for multiple years to find the quick fix, the easy way to lose weight, the magic pill, the program. Nothing will lead to the success you desire until you fully recognise why you've not been able to choose success.
What I eventually was able to recognise was my patterns of behaviour. I started to understand my sabotaging ways and how I was lying to myself for so many years. My self-worth, my fears of weight loss success. Once I was able to get real with ME and learn why I was morbidly obese for 17 years, only then was I able to make the lasting changes. Every day is a weight loss challenge, but I am armed with the thoughts, perseverance and self-support to stop making excuses and just live.
Eat well, move, and take care of yourself in however is best for you, with the right level of advice and support. When you're ready to work the mind and change your thoughts, that's where we can help.
