Those of us that struggle with weight realize that itís a lifetime struggle.
You canít go on a diet and lose some weight and then go back to the way you
were and expect to maintain a healthy weight.
Too many people say, ďI canít eat that, Iím on a diet.Ē
Diets are temporary; lifestyle changes are permanent. If you canít eat
something because youíre on a diet, when can you eat it? For those of us
that struggle with weight loss, there are no diets. We canít go on a diet
for a few weeks only to get off the diet and back to our old ways, we have
to make lifestyle changes and live a new healthier lifestyle, which is the
only true way to lose weight and maintain it.
Iím sure a lot of you know people that have had ďweight lossĒ surgery. I
canít say much about it because I have never had it, I can only give my
opinion. The weight loss surgery doesnít teach you how to eat right and
exercise. Without a new lifestyle, I truly feel that the weight loss surgery
is pointless. Those people that have the surgery and drop 100 lbs. didnít
actually ďloseĒ the weight and really have nothing to be proud about. Those
of us that bust our asses daily to lose the weight, we are the ones that
should be proud.
If you have surgery to lose weight and then continue to eat the way you did
without a new lifestyle, the surgery will fail and you will be in worse
shape than you were before. Iím not looking down on people who choose to
have the surgery; I truly believe that in order to lose weight and keep it
off, you have to change your life. There are no quick fixes and there is no
easy way out of being fat.
only way out of being fat is to make up your mind to do it, eat sensible,
exercise and never give up.
