I’m done obsessing over weight loss. It isn’t healthy and studies have shown that fixating on weight loss and dieting tend to actually make you GAIN weight. My new goal is to live a healthier life. If weight loss is a side effect of that, cool. If not, fine. Furthermore I’m going to follow research in improving my lifestyle. The science backed way to make lifestyle changes that stick is to make little changes one at a time. My first goal is to cook myself 1 nutritious meal a day. Admittedly I have been struggling with that, but its a process and that is ok. I’m done constantly criticizing myself and beating myself up for not accomplishing these things on the first try. Changing your lifestyle is hard and takes time and im going to be patient and compassionate with myself about it.
