I did it, I joined a weight loss fad. It all boils down to this, weight loss is a simple formula of eating less than the calories you burn. Simple right? Well, apparently not for me. I really enjoy tasty food. I love comfort food, I love to eat to celebrate and I eat to cheer me up. This would all be fine if I was an avid exerciser and moved about 85% more than I actually do on any given day. But I don’t.
I rationalized my decision with this: the rest of my life is pretty much out of control. I struggle with depression, my father’s health and stubbornness, infertility, aging etc. I could at least take some action towards loosing weight. The exercise and eating less is ideal, but since I’m also a realist I knew I needed some help, hence joining the fad. Yep, it costs money to receive the necessary items to get my “body cleansing” started. This fad promises boosted energy but requires no exercise to lose weight. What more could a gal ask for?!
I discovered this one through some of my Facebook friends. One of them had the same body type as me and in just a few weeks I could see a real significant change. This will either be really great, or I’m just a sucker for good advertising. I want to be excited that I’m at least taking a step in a more positive direction, but the depression in me thinks this will just be one of several attempts I’ve made and failed. I’ve been mentally stomping that negative part down ever since I placed my order. I need to remain hopeful and optimistic that I can do this.
My order should be coming this week, time to get mentally prepared, I can do this!!!
