Changing Lifestyles

Diets don’t work. Everyone knows that. If you’re going to go on a diet, you’re going to put the weight back on.

What you need to do is change your lifestyle. Change your eating habits. Change your exercise regime (or at least start one).

I am now in the process of doing just that. I do admit that initially, right now, I am on a diet. But I know this is just a quick fix. A quick solution to an age old problem. I want to lose some weight quickly. I have done some things hard (for example, I have put myself “on the dry” this month). Other things are just about self control and discipline. Unfortunately discipline is something I have very little of, or so I thought…

I have started my diet and the plan is to migrate onto a better eating plan. I have gone cold turkey on some of the most beautiful food groups in the world, namely: Carbohydrates. This is the diet part I am talking about. I am not talking about giving up on carbs altogether. But just for a while. 2 weeks, to a month. I’m at the 2 week period now and I had my first bowl of pasta today. Probably larger than it should have been, but I will not be having anymore for a few more days/weeks yet.

The point of this particular blog though, was to let you know that it hasn’t been that hard. I have a lot of motivation to keep strong and this motivation is keping me on track. The best part is, the motivation itself makes the cravings less severe. I would not mind having a drink or two (I love wild turkey), but know it would be the beginning of the end again. Then I would probably fall into my old ways quickly and probably order a pizza at the end of the night.

So what is my motivation?

  1. Check around this site, you’ll find some pictures, and they are NOT very pretty
  2. health issues
  3. cost
  4. and this motto:

Nothing tastes as good, as being thin feels
