So a couple of weeks back, I joined the weight loss competition at my gym – Largest Loser. I’ve been at a plateau in my weight for about a year, and it’s not a weight I’m actually comfortable at. So I decided to change up my routine.
Physically, I’m not as athletic as I like. When I was training to fight, I was more agile, stronger, and I moved faster. Currently, the extra weight I’m carrying is holding me back. Under normal circumstances, the weight isn’t a problem – it’s not like I’m upset about my looks or that I’m unhealthy. It’s just not where I want to be.
Joining a weight loss competition like this isn’t just about adding extra workouts or going on some crazy diet for 2 months. It’s bringing the focus back to how I eat, reinforcing the healthy habits I built up over the years of weight loss and maintenance.
I’ve lost a couple of pounds so far, but the thing that really helps is that I have a night-time snack that actually helps with my goals and doesn’t lead to the bored0m-snacking I’d been making a habit for the past year.
Sometimes it’s the little things that can bring you back in line with your goals. What little changes can YOU make towards your goals?
