Thoughts from a broken mind
When you envision your path to weight loss and fitness, you may see a long stretch of daily workouts, countless salads and you happily getting up each day to make all these healthy decisions.
What you may not see are the obstacles that, like a cat, creep up without any warning, pouncing on you with their sharp, stinging claws.
That pulled muscle two weeks into your exercise program, (mine was falling down my steps and brusing my tail bone) or that cold your coworker so helpfully passed on to you. That unexpected business trip or that friend ‘dropping by’ for a week’s long visit. The week you have to work late every night and end up gnawing on fast food just to get through the day.
We expect perfect, linear weight loss, but the weight loss process isn’t perfect and neither are we. We may get frustrated, with ourselves or our circumstances, when we get thrown off our game, wasting time and energy fuming over the unfairness of it all.
My biggest frustration so far is the vast amount of contradictions info you can read on the net about ever thing weight loss. Its like people just want you to fail in your goals, and most doctors can’t even agree on what someone needs. Like carbs and if you need them or not, and what kind of carbs ect. Makes you want to pull your hair out.
However, realizing that there are times when things may go wrong can help keep things in perspective. You may not be perfect and your weight loss may stall because of it, but you can find a way to get back on track if you give yourself the chance.
