Often, we approach changing with absolutes. There is nothing in the world that is truly black and white, except in the world of art.
Do you want to change? Lose weight? Eat better? Get in shape? Something else. . .
Extra weight seems to be one of the biggest changes most people wish to make in their lives. The hardest part is the time and effort it takes to lose the weight. At some point, it may even seem like a futile undertaking.
The biggest question to ask is how long did it take to gain all this extra weight?
The next question needs to be what am I willing to do to lose the extra weight?
The thing to remember is that the extra weight is fat stores. Fat stores are unused calories that were consumed, not burned through activity, and turned into storage as fat to be used another day. Each pound of fat contains 3500 calories of fuel for the body to burn through activities.
So, weight loss is a total lifestyle change. It requires good nutrition, proper amount of caloric intake, physical activity (walking, fitness program, gardening, etc.), and belief.
