On the lighter side..

I want to address the lighter side of weight loss today (no pun intended). I are tired of being overweight. I am always stressed. I want to lose weight so bad that we can taste it (also no pun intended). I have tried and tried and tried, but there seem to be set backs. I might lose a little only to gain it back the next week, lose it again and so on (the yo-yo syndrome).

Things are not perfect, nor will they ever be. As long as you are making a concentrated effort do not beat yourself up. Lighten up your heart!

It is easy to become discouraged when you are trying to lose weight. We all want instantaneous results. This generally does not happen and we do not necessarily want it to. The slower that we lose weight the easier time we have keeping it off. This is according to several studies done on weight loss. Be happy if you are even losing a pound a week. It is something and you have adjusted your body to eating that much less. The loss may be slow, but it is a loss nonetheless. When you feel stressed out regarding the time it is taking you to lose weight, do something to take your mind off it. Do something besides eating, that is. You can read, watch television or write your thoughts or feelings down. The list of things that you can do to take your mind off it is endless.

Remember, anything that is hard to obtain is worth having. This just means that you wanted it bad enough to keep striving toward your goal. You must also remember that you did not gain overnight, therefore you will not lose overnight.

Lighten up and read some jokes to help ease a little stress while you are taking those baby steps and remember to keep on moving.
