After talking to one of my friends today I decided to share this philosophy with all of you.
Many of us struggle on a daily basis with maintaining, or trying to lose, weight. Those of you who do not struggle, and do not have a clue what I’m talking about, disengage from this blog. You don’t need to read any further. And I
hate admire you. Go away.
For the rest of us… this may be just the motivational psychological leg up that you need.
When you lose weight, you are actually doing two things. One, you are losing weight (obvious). But two, and most people ignore this part, you are not gaining weight. Am I right, or am I right? Those are your only two options. I am so right.
So, stay with me, when you lose weight you are accomplishing two goals. Now, on to the rest of the philosophy. If you have lost weight and not gained weight than you have doubled what you have lost. So, if you have lost five pounds, you have actually lost ten pounds.
If you have lost 7.5 pounds, you have actually lost fifteen pounds.
If you have lost 14 pounds, you have actually lost 28 pounds.
See? I told you I was right.
Now, here’s part of the philosophy not shared with others, until now. If you have maintained and not gained any weight you can choose the number that you have lost, because you did not gain that weight.
Holding steady at 132 for a year? Fantastic! You have lost 73 pounds!
Holding steady at 201 for 31 years? Unbelieveable!!! You have lost 142 pounds.
You can not argue the logic on this.
I’ve lived with it for many a year. It makes sense. Besides, it’s my philosophy. Which makes me the philosopher. Which makes it right.
It’s all about happy living.
