Weight Loss: the Mental Side

Recently I read a blog post saying that weight loss is "80% mental, 20% physical".  Wow, that is so true.  You have to commit to losing weight, or else it won't happen.

I'm still running each weekend, although it isn't easy. I am really demotivated about work lately, and am having trouble falling asleep and waking up.  I'm so tired during the week that all I want to do on the weekends is to sleep.  Still, I get out of bed at around 6:30 AM so that I can go to the gym before it gets crowded.

Anyone have any good tips on the mental side of losing weight?

Also, I realized that most of my meals are structured around rice. Yes, I know it's not good. It is really hard to get decent vegetables here (at least in the winter).  I say this in each post, but I am really looking forward to warmer weather, partially because better vegetables will be available then.

Any good weight loss blogs? 

xoxo, K

  1. As you probably know, I have metabolic and other medical issues that have contributed to weight gain. The best thing that you can do is embrace good habits as a permanent lifestyle change, and be pleased about ANY incremental progress towards your goal - because every small step counts! GOOD LUCK!

  2. Maybe 80% is because you're tired of your routine, you could try switching up your workouts if it helps? Also, when I stopped weighing myself so often, I managed to feel happier about myself and still manage to get fitter.

  3. As always, good luck in your weight loss quest. Hopefully the weather warms up soon so that you can get better veggies.
