Getting started...again.

August 6, 2017


So, here I am again, starting a new weight loss program.  What can I do to make this a meaningful journey to better health.  One thing that I learned on my last journey was that this is a “change in lifestyle.”  I refuse to think of this as a diet.  This is not temporary, it is a permanent change in the way that I eat and how I think about food.  I learned that this process requires time to allow my mind to adjust to where my body is going.  Most importantly, I learned that I do not have to be “perfect” on this journey.  If I consume more calories than I need, whether by plan or by mistake, I need to get back on my routine.  I don’t need to “overcompensate” by starving myself, I need to go back to the reduced plan that I have been following.


Starting on this journey I have some rules that I will follow.  The most important rule is this:  I must make myself a priority in this weight loss effort.  I must put other items on the back burner for the next few months until my food plan becomes second nature.  Work can wait, my family can eat what I eat for a few months.  I have to be selfish, something that is difficult for me to do, but something that I must do for myself.

Next time…rule number 2!

About My Journey to Better Health

Hey!  I’m Cynthia and thanks for joining me on my weight loss journey towards better health!  Like many others, I have been on this journey before, but each time I get better and go further.  When I slip and somehow end up back where I started, I feel a sense of regret.  It takes a lot to attempt weight loss and to regain the weight happens to 95% of us.  So I thought that this time, I’d make you my partners and my witnesses as we journey together towards better health – the skinnythick way!
