Lose 5 pounds
I’m frustrated and mad, and then I’m pleased and happy. Then it starts all over again. I publish uplifting articles designed to help others get through trying times. I write a book about living a Wellthy lifestyle that has helped hundreds find their way to health and happiness. So, why can’t I find my way past the plateau I’m currently standing on? I guess it boils down to the fact that I’m human.
I’ve lost the same 5 pounds seven times now. Yes, I lose it, then find it then lose it again, then find it again! Do the math. I’m up 25 pounds in total since my surgery and retirement. I should be down 35 pounds (pounds times 7 successes). So, what can I do?
According to Mr. B’s father, “if you fall down seven times, get up eight!” The answer is simple. I get up, dust myself off and go back to working on being healthy. “Success is a journey, not a destination.” I am on a journey.
According to the dictates of “Diets and Other Unnatural Acts,” all I have to do is define what my problems and goals are and then refine myself, chicken stepping my way to health. Let’s see:
- I need time to exercise more. Solution –I hate exercise! As it stands, I feel rotten from the time I wake up until the time I go to bed. Of course, my present state of obesity would make anybody feel crappy. Time to start exercising. I’ll start today. I’ll drive by a gym.
- I’m overworked. Napping 3 times a day is time consuming and doesn’t jive with #1. Napping is a full-time job. Time to retire from my napping job and find something more productive to do.
- I’m overdue for my deposit in my 90-day plan. Solution – Time to take a vacation from retirement in the midwest. “Renee, pack a bag. It’s time to head south.”
See how easy it is to change one’s life and get back on track! Now, it’s time to lose those troublesome 5 pounds for the last time, and then, five more.
