That’s exactly what I had to do. Commit to re-commit. I read an a article on Calorie Count about a woman who lost 95 lbs by making a commitment to re-commit to eating less and moving more, the only true way to lose and maintain healthy weight loss. Last night I went to my weight management program, as I do every week. I knew that I had gained a couple pounds during my eating extravaganza in New York, and didn’t want to face reality on the scale. When I stepped up, it was more like a slap in the face mixed with a strong burn-your-chest shot of reality.
The doctor, the nutritionist and the physical therapist were all on my case…big time. The doctor commented on how “nice” it was that I’ve maintained my weight and haven’t lost since YEAR. The nutritionist made me go through the calorie king book and count up the calories I eat at McDonalds, and how that’s half the calories, I should be eating in an entire day. Good thing I didn’t tell her about Nathan’s…well I guess the scale told even if I didn’t. And the physical therapist told me that contrary to my belief that all the walking in NY would “balance out” all the bad eating, it would not since I’m already an active person. She said I have to go longer and work harder if I want to see results. The team helped me realize what I already know, “if you do what you always did, you’ll get what you always got!” So I’m ready to commit to something new, and hoping for new results.
