When To Stop Trying And Start Just Doing

Being aware of why you’re wasting time doing what you always used to do can help you understand why it’s time to stop trying and start just doing. Let’s continue rolling with the money theme. Don’t lose weight — instead, gain self-confidence, better health and self-esteem. Keep the tone positive at all times.

When we are trying to shed pounds, we often believe that we have to do something drastic to change our habits. We get to a point where we become too worried about the size of our waist circumference or the number on the scale. It’s a problem with a simple solution… just eat less. This approach is not a good solution for many reasons. It’s easy to get discouraged when we don’t see results right away. Many people, even doctors, tell us that eating less calories than we burn will not result in weight loss. The reality is, we need to eat, we just need to know how to be mindful of what we’re eating so we don’t over eat. In other words, we need to know what’s good and what’s bad (and what we don’t really need). This approach is not a good solution for many reasons.

The reality is, we need to eat, we just need to know how to be mindful of what we’re eating so we don’t over eat. If you’re a woman… stop drinking, quit smoking, and never start again. Just doing these things instead of trying to “do” this or that “solution” can result in a significant reduction in weight and better health. If you are a man…

Be mindful of your eating habits, especially at night. Make sure that you don’t skip meals all the time without noticing. We can change from being hungry at 7 p.m. to just wanting to go out for a late dinner. If you eat too close to bedtime, you probably are not getting your required amount of sleep. The way we eat is not the way to lose weight, but it can be difficult to know where to start. Try experimenting with “breakfast food” at breakfast time and then eat food at lunch time.

The biggest mistake of all of us is to say we have to do something to lose the weight and then don’t. The key to weight loss is self-discipline and the ability to make changes. If you’re not good at taking responsibility and setting some kind of goal then you’ll fail anyway. If you’re just as bad as you think your body is… you have nothing to lose, so why even try.
