You may be thinking that slimming and losing weight is the same thing. This may or may not be true. The fact is that the majority of dieters have a tunnel vision approach to dieting and getting in shape. They rely on numbers to fix their solutions and fall into the vortex of numbers. They think all of their problems will be solved if the weighing scales tell them a number they want. If you adopt this approach to dieting you will end up like the majority of dieters and keep on going around in circles and getting nowhere. You will be forever chasing numbers and putting all of your happiness into what the weighing scales tell you.
Ok, I know what you are thinking, I need to lose weight and I need the scales to reflect this. It is true the scales should move in the right direction if that is your goal but there are many factors why people can’t drop weight fast and keep it off, too many to mention here.
You have to ask yourself what you want to look like, saying that you want to weigh X amount simply won’t cut it. If you reach your goal weight who’s saying your love handles and belly won’t protrude through your tight clothes? Where’s the guarantee that you will feel great and feel full of energy and be happy? Numbers don’t offer a guarantee so it is worthless investing all of your effort into assuming certain body weights yields a certain look and solution to your problems. If you could line up ten people of the same body weight I could guarantee there wouldn’t be anyone with the same body shape and quality of life. The take-home message is to be the best version of yourself you can be, I hope this gives people something to think about.
