Did you read yesterday's quote?

And did you take it to heart??

One of the speeches I routinely give new members to the FC is,

"No matter how technically great of a  training routine I develop for you, if you hate it, you won't do it.  And if you don't do it, you won't get results.  Which means I haven't helped you find the right program."

Great on paper doesn't get results.

Great when it comes to execution does.

Give some thought to the last set of health behavior/weight management changes you made.

Did you hate them (and consequently stop doing them)?

Did you like them well enough but find they didn't really work when you tried to fit them into the larger picture of your life (and consequently stop doing them)?

We've all put the hammer down before and lost weight.....and then gained it back because keepin' the hammer down is too much work!

Isn't it time to stop?  Isn't it time to start trying to figure out when you're physically hungry? Or when you're just eating because you're bored, stressed, or think you should?

Sometimes, I think we're like spoiled kids because we throw a mental fit everytime we want an ice cream but tell ourselves we can't have one.  We whine, cry, moan, mope, and generally are such brats to be around, we end up giving in to the demanding child-self.

It's time to find a better solution -- one you can live with (and, dare I say it.....even like!).
