lifestyle change, no diet, no lifestyle change
Saturday, January 23, 2010
We went out to eat last night and the choices had my head battling with lifestyle change vs diet. I feel strongly that lifestyle change is the way to make it permanent and an easy flow into keeping the weight off. But dieting may get me there faster, or would at least seem like it, and I've been hovering so long, but dieting can be lifestyle change if applied judiciously, aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagh
Sometimes real life is just important to live, and if it has somethings that are off-diet it is not the end of the world or the end of a goal. I think I'm just feeling a bit of impatience. I've been trying to get a handle on this for more than 10 years. Now that my body is responding appropriately to diet and exercise, that "I want it off now!" feeling keeps creeping in. Lifestyle change will get me miles past the finish line.
I need to channel the turtle even though the internal rabbit is jumping.
