I have spent my fair share of time failing in my quest to lose weight and get healthy in the past 15 years. My life always had an exercise and health thread running through it, from soccer and volleyball, (always) swimming to coaching to even becoming a personal trainer and mastering my craft for my clients the last 7 years! Oh, I could lose weight by exercise, I could lose weight by dieting, and I could train for that 10k run coming up. But why did I seem to keep losing the SAME few lbs over and over again?
That's not true weight loss. You know what that's called? . . . Maintenance!
I knew what to do, so why couldn't I just pull myself together? Some days I felt like my body was broken ~ like I was doing all the right things and nothing worked, even though science said it should. And there were other days when I just didn't make the right decisions and sabotaged myself because I was “tired of fighting” the cravings. I used to tell myself that I'd start again tomorrow, or Monday, or after that specific event . . .
