Old Patterns…

September 16th, 2013 2 Comments Tags: , , , ,

I was changing over my closet a few days ago and caught a glimpse of a classic old pair of fancy pants with a daisy pattern and it got me thinking about patterns, hmmmmm.

It’s funny that old patterns die hard and for me, they sometimes never do! The same can hold true with how we do things and our habits. You know what I mean, that old fallback position is what we run to in times of stress – Chunky Monkey ice cream anyone? This holds true for when we make food and eating choices in spades. Other times activity routines are abandoned in a flash. Sound familiar?

We can read volumes about the optimal “to do’s” around food, nutrition and activity when really the true elephant in the room that affects people’s weight is how they eat and their behaviour, or shall I say misbehaviour….. Truly folks, we are biological beings who were reared and cuddled with our Mother’s milk of human kindness from the day we emerged from the womb. Think about it.

Some people beat themselves up for having difficulty with those automatic “knee jerk” munch-a-thons when the stress alarms sound. Consider changing your focus and attention on finding solutions during these more challenging times instead of dealing in one dimension of only focusing on healthy food.

    Very good advice. I have just started back with exercise and working on the eating pat slowly. My last birthday my goal was to weigh under 170 lbs. by the next one. Birthday coming up oct. 8 and I have stayed consistently under the 170 mark. That gives me encouragement for finding a new birthday goal this coming year. Nice dog you’ve got, pretty neckerchief.
