Your "diet" should not be a temporary, crash weight loss system, with a quick end in sight and fast goal in mind. Your diet needs to be part of your everyday lifestyle.
You didn't get to where you are today, overnight, and you cannot expect to reach optimal health overnight. Achieving a healthy lifestyle takes little changes, each day. These little changes are not just about dieting and your food.
It involves every aspect in your life:
- Your time schedule
- The way you think
- How you treat yourself and others around you
- How you allow others to treat you
- The amount of love you have for your body
- How much room you give yourself to relax and breathe
- and so much more.
Sometimes you need to slow down, stop trying to be a perfectionist, and try to make small, but important decisions, each day, to help you live a better life. It may be a slow process, but it will become easier to maintain over time.
After all, it's not a race to lose weight and get healthy. Your body needs your patience.
You must get healthy to lose weight; You cannot lose weight to get healthy.
So make positive changes a priority, every day, and it will become your way of life.
